With the end of the Big 12 regular season upon us, its time to look at the individual players that stood out at their respective positions. Some of the top players aren’t a surprise, but there are a few notable subtractions that would’ve been hard predictions before the season began, notably at third base where Nebraska junior Cody Asche held steady at the end to pass a hard-slumping Oklahoma junior Garrett Buechele, a preseason favorite for Player of the Year honors.
Texas A&M OF Tyler Naquin finished the season strong, claiming Player of the Year honors. The sophomore led the league in average, hits, and runs scored, while finishing among the top 10 in five other categories. Continue reading

Baylor sophomore CF Logan Vick robbed TCU LF Jason Coats of his 8th home run on the year tonight with a great over-the-fence grab in center field. With two outs in the 4th, Coats drove a Trent Blanks pitch to deep center for what looked like a three-run homer, but Vick followed it well, jumped at the wall, and snagged the would-be hit for the final out of the inning.The Horned Frogs led 5-2 at that point, and would have blown it open if it weren’t for Vick’s grab. Baylor ended up tying up the game at 6 before falling to the Horned Frogs 7-6. You can check out the catch below. Continue reading
With only a few weeks left until the postseason starts, the Big 12 features three conference series, two out-of-conference series, and a pair of teams taking the weekend off.
Texas travels north to take on Nebraska for the final time as conference opponents. The Longhorns took a pair from the Sooners last weekend, giving them an important boost in the standings, and setting up a possible winner-take-all showdown against Texas A&M to close out the regular season. Taylor Jungmann is one of the best overall players in the nation, and Cole Green has steadied after a rough start. The Longhorns are still looking for a third starter to pick up the slack. The player to watch is SS Brandon Loy. Loy has always had an excellent glove and arm, and has found his stroke this season. Continue reading
