Belleville News-Democrat - - Sports -

The fifth-ranked Soon­ers will face No. 14 Texas in the Big 12 cham­pi­onship game in Nor­man at 11 a.m. Satur­day. It’s the first time the Red River Show­down ri­vals have had an in-sea­son re­match in 115 years. Texas handed Ok­la­homa its only loss of the sea­son, 48-45, on Oct. 6. The re­match will be tele­vised on ABC.

Seib­ert is the first Ok­la­homa player to earn the spe­cial teams player of the year hon­ors. The recog­ni­tion could be the first for Seib­ert who is one of the only com­bi­na­tion (pun­ter­place­kick­ers) in the na­tion.

Seib­ert cur­rently leads the Big 12 in scor­ing with 115 points and has con­verted on 12 of his 14 field goal at­tempts, with his longest of the sea­son, a 42-yard ef­fort, com­ing in a 37-27 win at Iowa State. Seib­ert also has recorded 80 touch­backs on 96 kick­offs this sea­son.

In the punt­ing game, Seib­ert is cur­rently av­er­ag­ing 41.1 yards per at­tempt
