Does A&M have Big 12's best duo outside state of Oklahoma?

BY JOHN ROHDE, Staff Writer, Published: August 29, 2011

Oklahoma has multiple tandems in quarterback Landry Jones/wide receiver Ryan Broyles, Jones/wide receiver Kenny Stills, running back Roy Finch/running back Brandon Williams, et al.

Oklahoma State has multiple combinations in quarterback Brandon Weeden/wide receiver Justin Blackmon, Weeden/running back Joseph Randle, Randle/running back Jeremy Smith, Blackmon/wide receiver Josh Cooper and punter Quinn Sharp/placekicker Quinn Sharp.

Here are the league's other top combos:

1. WR Jeff Fuller and RB Cyrus Gray (Texas A&M): Fuller is a top-five receiver nationally. Replacing injured starter Christine Michael last year, Gray had 100-plus yards in seven straight games and finished with 1,133 yards. QB Ryan Tannehill makes this a three-headed monster.

2. QB Robert Griffin III and WR Kendall Wright (Baylor): With talented receiver Josh Gordon now off the team, Griffin and Wright will have to excel even more for the Bears, who also suffered the departure of running back Jay Finley (1,218 yards rushing; 12 TDs last year).
