The Associated Press - December 7, 2016 9:50 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Oklahoma has seven first-team selections on The Associated Press All-Big 12 team after winning its 10th league title.

Big-play receiver Dede Westbrook was selected the Big 12 offensive player of the year. He finished just ahead of repeat AP first-team quarterback Baker Mayfield, his Oklahoma teammate and fellow Heisman Trophy finalist.

D’Onta Foreman, a 2,000-yard rusher at Texas, joined Westbrook as the only unanimous first-team picks on offense for the All-Big 12 team announced Tuesday.

Kansas State had three first-team picks on defense, including defensive end Jordan Willis, the AP defensive player of the year by one vote over cornerback Rasul Douglas of West Virginia. Willis and Douglas were the only unanimous defensive picks.

Oklahoma’s Bob Stoops is coach of the year for a record fifth time.
