Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden, receiver Justin Blackmon, running back Kendall Hunter and lineman Levy Adcock were selected from an Oklahoma State offense that`s averaging 537.6 yards per game, second-best in the country.
Blackmon, Hunter and Adcock were unanimous selections. Blackmon leads the nation in receiving with 154.8 yards per game and Hunter is sixth in rushing at 126.3.
Weeden, a 27-year-old former minor-league baseball player, is second in the country in yards passing per game with 336.4. He`s 16th in passer rating, tops in the conference.
Linebacker Orie Lemon and punter Quinn Sharp round out the honorees from No. 16 Oklahoma State. Lemon was unanimous; Sharp and Blackmon were the only sophomores chosen.
For No. 10 Nebraska, lineman Jared Crick, linebacker Lavonte David and defensive backs Prince Amukamara and Eric Hagg were chosen from a defense that`s fifth-best in the country, allowing 291.2 yards per game. The Cornhuskers have the nation`s second-best defense against the pass.
Crick and David were unanimous picks. Offensive lineman Ricky Henry and kicker Alex Henery also were chosen from Nebraska, the North division champions.
Colorado offensive lineman Nate Solder was one of 10 unanimous first-team picks.
Buffs David Bakhtiari, Ryan Miller, Scotty McKnight, Will Pericak, Forrest West, Michael Sipili and Jimmy Smith all earned honorable mention.
