Offensive lineman Brian Cornell, a senior from Allen, Texas, earned Second Team designation. The Bison offensive line gave up just three sacks all season, the leading mark in Division II and the GAC. The dominant line play paved the way for the No. 1 passing offense in the league, averaging 276.5 yards per game. OBU also finished third in scoring offense (28.5 point per game) and fourth in total offense (391.9 yards per game).

Receiving honorable mention recognition by the league were sophomore quarterback Preston Haire, and sophomore defensive lineman Robert Lolofie.

He also led the GAC in total offense, averaging 307 yards per game, while completing over 60 percent of his passes on the season.

The Bison wrapped up the 2018 season on a three-game winning streak and compiled a perfect 5-0 record against fellow Oklahoma schools in the GAC.
