|Welcome to Big 12 SAAC! My name is Yves Batoba and I’m a senior on the Oklahoma State University football team, double majoring in Sports Management and Marketing. I first joined Oklahoma State SAAC when I was a sophomore and I have been involved ever since. SAAC is a great way for Student-Athletes to give perspective of our well-being within the Big 12 Conference and the NCAA, while also increasing our knowledge and skills to become more well-rounded individuals, on and off the field. It’s important as student-athletes and role models to give back to our campuses and communities that have supported us so willingly. Even though we are fierce competitors athletically, Big 12 SAAC members also understand the importance of unity within the Conference. We are very excited about the new Big 12 and are looking forward to making an impact this upcoming year!
