With three weeks left in the Big 12's first round-robin schedule, the league's automatic BCS berth could come down to one game.
Second-ranked Oklahoma State and No. 5 Oklahoma play in the
regular season finale. With no more Big 12 championship game, the
winner of that Dec. 3 game at Oklahoma State will be headed to the
BCS - if the Sooners don't slip up before then.
While No. 16 Kansas State could still tie for the regular-season
conference title, the Wildcats are out of the mix for the automatic
BCS bid because of losses to both Oklahoma State and Oklahoma.
The Wildcats, Baylor and Texas are already bowl eligible while
Missouri, Texas A&M, Iowa State and Texas Tech each need only one
more win to give the league nine bowl teams.
