Big 12 teams embracing run game

SHARE Big 12 teams embracing run game

Big 12 teams have resumed their annual tradition of piling up crazy stats every September.

The numbers, however, aren't all through the air.

Kansas State, Oklahoma State and Oklahoma all rank in the top 10 nationally in rushing yards, led by the Wildcats with 612. Nine of the Big 12's 10 teams are averaging more than five yards a run through the first two weeks of the season.

The Big 12 had just four teams (and current member TCU) that averaged at least five yards per carry in 2011 — and Missouri and Texas A&M aren't even in the league anymore.
