TCU sweeps coaches' Big 12 football awards
TCU made a clean sweep of the Big 12 coaches awards. Quarterback Trevone Boykin was named Offensive Player of the Year and linebacker Paul Dawson won Defensive Player of the Year Award. Gary Patterson was also named the Chuck Neinas Coach of the Year.
The awards are voted on by the league's 10 head coaches, who cannot vote for themselves or their own players.
Kansas State pulled the same feat in 2012, but Oklahoma in 2003 is the only other team to duplicate the feat. You can see the coaches' All-Big 12 team here, but these are winners of all the Big 12 awards:
