Underclassman running backs fuel Big 12 attacks

The running game has become increasingly important in the Big 12 this season - with a host of talented young backs leading the way.

Seven of the league's top 10 rushers were underclassmen as the league reached the midway point of the season, led by Oklahoma State's Justice Hill, Iowa State's David Montgomery and Oklahoma's talented duo of Trey Sermon and Abdul Adams.

While Mason Rudolph and James Washington have hogged the headlines in Stillwater, Hill has quietly emerged as the Big 12's most productive back.
