Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein is the AP's Big 12 offensive player of the year and Devonte Fields of TCU picked up the honor on defense.

Klein received 14 of the 18 votes Wednesday from members of the media who regularly cover the league. West Virginia's Tavon Austin got three votes and Terrance Williams of Baylor received the other one.

Fields got seven first-place votes for the defensive award to beat out Kansas State's Arthur Brown, who received four. TCU's Jason Verrett, Iowa State's A.J. Klein and Oklahoma's Aaron Colvin and Tony Jefferson also received votes.

Fields was also the runaway winner of defensive newcomer of the year, while Baylor running back Lache Seastrunk was voted the conference's top newcomer on offense.
