Here is a preview of this week's Big 12 games (all times Eastern):
Kansas State at TCU, noon, FS1: This game will effectively decide fourth place in the Big 12 standings and a potential spot in the AdvoCare V100 Texas Bowl against an SEC opponent. TCU is 2-2 against K-State since joining the Big 12 but has won the past two meetings. Bill Snyder just won his 200th game at K-State, becoming the sixth coach to reach the 200-win mark at only one school. Gary Patterson has 149 victories at TCU.
No. 10 Oklahoma State at No. 8 Oklahoma, 12:30 p.m., Fox: For the fourth time in the past six seasons, Bedlam will decide the Big 12 title, though this will be the first time the Sooners will have the opportunity to clinch the championship in Norman. Oklahoma will be gunning for its 10th Big 12 title; no other Big 12 team has more than three (Texas). Oklahoma State has won one conference title (2011) since 1976, when the Cowboys split the Big Eight crown three ways with Oklahoma and Colorado. This will be the 15th time the Bedlam rivals have met when both are ranked; the Sooners have won 13 of the past 14 such matchups.
Baylor at No. 18 West Virginia, 3:30 p.m., FS1: West Virginia will be looking to secure its ninth double-digit win season in program history, and its first since joining the Big 12 in 2012. After starting out 6-0, Baylor has lost five in a row, including four by 19 or more points. The Mountaineers have had four different players rush for 100 yards, including freshman Martell Pettaway, who had his redshirt pulled last weekend at Iowa State.
