Three West Virginia University football players were selected for the 2020 Associated Press All-Big 12 first-team — announced Thursday — with one of those players sharing one of the conference’s individual honors.

Running back Leddie Brown, defensive lineman Darius Stills and linebacker Tony Fields were picked by the press as first-teamers, with Fields sharing the league’s Newcomer of the Year award with Oklahoma quarterback Spencer Rattler.

Iowa State running back Breece Hall was named the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year, while the Cyclones’ Mike Rose was tabbed the Defensive Player of the Year by the AP voters. Matt Campbell, who led Iowa State to its best season in a century, was named the league’s Coach of the Year.
