The Big 12’s Three-Team Race

Coming into what was seen as sort of a rebuilding year for the Big 12 conference, the two teams expected to be atop the table as the season winded down were Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. Many argued that the two school’s would meet up in the return of the Big 12 Championship Game, and that…

Preview: Week 6 in the Big 12

This past weekend, four Big 12 teams had a weekend off before really diving headfirst into the conference round robin.

Sunday night’s premier matchup will have the West Virginia Mountaineers traveling to FedEx Field to…
