Six Colorado players were named to the Academic All-Big 12 team. The team was announced Tuesday and includes 137 players.

Fulback Jake Behrens, defensive tackle George Hypolite, tight end Devin Shanahan, tackle Nate Solder and defensive back Travis Sandersfeld earned first-team honors by achieving at least a 3.2 grade-point average and participating in at least 60 percent of the team's games.

Patrick Devenny was the only member of the team to earn a spot on the second team. A player must have achieved a GPA and played in 60 percent of the team's games.

Texas led the league with 22 members on the team, followed by 18 from this week's opponent Nebraska.
