Welcome to Week 12 in the Big 12

WACO, Texas -- Kansas State is 60 minutes away from one of two things: The longest two-week wait in the history of Manhattan, Kan., or one of the most painful nights in the school's history.

Either way, tonight's game is going to be an emotional one. I'll be at Floyd Casey Stadium a little later for every second of the game, and you can follow along all the Big 12 action beforehand with me via Twitter.

It's a weird schedule in the Big 12 this week -- nobody in the league kicks off at the noon ET spot. Texas Tech and Oklahoma State open the today's action at 3:30 p.m. ET on Fox Sports Net.

Until the games kick off, though, get caught up on what you've missed on the blog this week:

That ought to keep you plenty busy. Should be a great day of games. Once again, follow along on Twitter during the games and we'll have coverage on the blog of all the games across the league today.
