Following their 10-2 season, a few Sooners were recognized for another outstanding performance on the field.

They did not come away victorious with a Big 12 championship, but a Sugar Bowl date with Alabama should be a nice consolation considering the implications of a win in New Orleans.

A few Sooners, though, were honored with All-Big 12 honors, voted on by the Associated Press.

First, Dominique Alexander was named the Defensive Newcomer of the Year, who had a monster season as a true freshman. The Tulsa native accumulated 75 tackles, started seven of the 12 games he played, forced a fumble, and added a sack.

As far as the selections go, the first team included center Gabe Ikard and defensive back Aaron Colvin.

Ikard, also, received the 2013 Wuerffel Trophy Tuesday, which is annually given to the college football player who shows a great deal of community involvement through service, as well as performing on the field and in the class room.

The second team featured kicker Michael Hunnicutt, who should be feeling good after his insane Bedlam performance.

Charles Tapper was also named to the second team at defensive line after a breakout season for the sophomore.
