2023 All-Big 12 College Football Team and Individual Honors

    The 2023 All-Big 12 Honors at the team and individual level highlight the best we saw from the conference during the 2023 college football season.

    The Big 12 season was a memorable one, and ultimately saw a soon-to-be former member win it for a final time. In the final season with both the Texas Longhorns and Oklahoma Sooners as members, the 2023 season saw some incredible highs.

    With three new members in UCF, BYU, and Houston, the 15-team conference has plenty of name notoriety on the All-Big 12 team and individual honors.
