Tom Herman celebrates while leaving the field after coaching Houston to an upset of Oklahoma last September

He exploded onto the national radar after a breakthrough season in which he became Kansas football's first unanimous All-Big 12 Conference First Team member.

West Virginia University senior running back Justin Crawford has been named to the Big 12 Preseason All-Conference team, and redshirt junior quarterback Will Grier was named preseason Big 12 Newcomer of the Year, selected by media representatives who cover the league. Beginning at Big 12 Conference champion Oklahoma, Armstrong gathered a then-career-high six tackles accompanied by 2.0 tackles-for-loss and a sack.

Defensive Player of the Year: Dorance Armstrong, DL, Kansas. A member of the 2017 Bednarik Award watch list, Reed tied for second on the team with 75 tackles to go along with three interceptions.

The reductions would begin this year "provided that the economy evolves broadly" as Fed officials are forecasting, she said. At the June meeting, the Fed gave a clear outline of its plan this year to reduce its portfolio but gave no precise timing.

Risner started all 13 games at right tackle in 2016 after starting every game at center the year prior. If the Sooners were to win the 2017 title, it would be their third straight Big 12 title.

The 6-foot-4 Armstrong is also the first Kansas player to be voted a unanimous selection for the Preseason All-Big 12 Football Team. He also forced three fumbles and recovered two fumbles. FOX23 News will have live coverage from the event on both days. On offense, they are Mayfield, tight end Mark Andrews, and offensive lineman Orlando Brown.

Armstrong and his KU football squad will begin the 2017 season on Saturday, September 2 with a home game against Southeast Missouri State. Kansas State, which picked up the other first-place vote, totaled 231 points and was followed by Texas (213 points), TCU (202), West Virginia (183), Baylor (129), Texas Tech (85), Iowa State (83) and Kansas (37).
