It's individual awards season in college football, and ten members of the Big 12 have been named to another All-America team.

Players from Baylor, Oklahoma State and Texas A&M were named to the CBSSports.com All-America First Team, and Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, A&M and Kansas State placed players on the media source's second team.

Quarterback Robert Griffin III and wide-receiver Kendall Wright of Baylor, wide-receiver Justin Blackmon and offensive lineman Levy Adcock of Oklahoma State and Texas A&M placekicker Randy Bullock were first-team selections. The four offensive players from the Big 12 were the most from any conference. Three of the first-team selections are seniors (Wright, Adcock and Bullock). Blackmon and Griffin are juniors.

Baylor's Griffin was named winner of the 2011 Heisman Trophy on Saturday, honoring college football's most outstanding player this season. The Heisman is the most coveted prize in college football.

Second-team selections included wide-receiver Ryan Broyles and defensive end Frank Alexander from Oklahoma, both seniors; senior defensive back Markelle Martin from Big 12 champion Oklahoma State; linebacker Sean Porter of Texas A&M, a junior; and kick-return specialist Tyler Lockett of Kansas State, the only freshman from the Big 12 to be named to the CBSSports.com first or second teams.
