It’s finally time to release our SIS All-Conference teams. We used our all-encompassing player value stat, Total Points, along with other metrics and our scouting work as leading references in putting together our team of selections for 2022, plus a few honorable mentions.
You can learn more about Total Points and the statistics referenced here.
These picks are meant to honor this season’s best-of-the-best in the Big 12.

TCU’s Max Duggan burst onto the scene after not initially being named the starting QB. He led the Horned Frogs to their first CFP appearance and ultimately to the National Championship game. Duggan not only led the conference with 145 Total Points, but he also led in yards (3,698) and TDs (32).
Bijan Robinson was a consistent force in the conference. He accumulated 74 Total Points, which not only led the conference, but led all FBS running backs by a significant margin. He also finished 5th nationally in yards (1,578) and rushing TDs (18), and he created the 2nd-highest Broken+Missed Tackle rate (33.3%) among players with at least 150 rushes.
Kansas State boasted one of the top offensive lines in the conference with three players, Christian Duffie, Hadley Panzer, and Hayden Gillum, leading the Big 12 at each of their positions in TP with 39, 39, and 41, respectively.

Texas Tech’s Tyree Wilson put together another great season, accumulating 43 Total Points, 7 sacks, and 45 pressures (tied 8th nationally).

Ty Zentner’s 13 punts inside the 10 ranks tied for 5th in the FBS.
