RELATED LINKS
Robert Griffin III (Baylor), Sam Holl (Baylor) and  Anthony Cantele (Kansas State) have been named the season's final Big 12 Conference Football Players of the Week, as selected by a media panel. Griffin III (offense) was honored for the third time this season and fifth occasion in his career. Holl (defense) picked up his first career honor while Cantele (special teams) was recognized for the third week in 2011 and the fourth time in his career.

Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week
Robert Griffin III, Baylor, QB, Jr, Copperas Cove, Texas
Robert Griffin III accounted for four touchdowns to lead No. 17 Baylor to a 48-24 win over No. 22 Texas. He went 15-of-22 through the air for 320 yards and two TDs against the nation's No. 9 defense. The junior also ran the ball 12 times for 32 yards and two scores.  RG3 became the third player in FBS history to compile 10,000 career passing yards and 2,000 career rushing yards (Dan LeFevour, Central Michigan; Colin Kaepernick, Nevada). He is the nation's leader in passing efficiency (192.31) and points responsibility (22.67), ranks second in total offense (386.83), fourth in passing TDs (36), fifth in completion percentage (72.36) and sixth in passing yards (3,998).

Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week
Sam Holl, Baylor, S, So, Katy, Texas
Sam Holl made a game-high 16 tackles and collected two interceptions for the Baylor defense that forced six turnovers in its 48-24 win over No. 22 Texas. With the Bears leading 31-24, the sophomore safety intercepted a pass at the Baylor 27-yard line and returned it 62 yards to Texas' 11-yard line to setup a Baylor touchdown two plays later. He picked off his second pass in the end zone in the fourth quarter. Eleven of Holl's 16 tackles came in the second half when BU held the Longhorns to three points. He became the first Baylor player with multiple interceptions in a game since Joe Pawelek had two against Texas A&M on Nov. 15, 2008. Holl has accumulated the most tackles in a game in three of BU's last four contests. He moved up to third in the Big 12 and leads non-linebackers with 8.5 tackles an outing.

Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Week
Anthony Cantele, Kansas State, PK, Jr, Wichita, Kan.
Anthony Cantele nailed all three of his field goal attempts in No. 11 Kansas State's 30-23 win over Iowa State, marking the third time this season he has made three field goals in a game. The junior connected on a 37-yarder in the second quarter, a 47-yard attempt in the third quarter and a 19-yarder in the fourth quarter. For the season, Cantele is 17-of-22 on field goals and is 10-of-14 in the 30-49-yard range. He ranks tied for fifth in school history for field goals made in a season and fifth for field goals attempted in a season.
