November shaping up to be a wild month in Big 12

The Big 12 is shaping up for a wild November with five teams fighting for a shot at the league's automatic BCS berth.

Midway through the conference season, the maneuvering isn't just going on at the top of the standings.

While four teams already bowl eligible, others are scrapping to fill the remainder of the league's seven-bowl allotment.

Alongside fifth-ranked Baylor, No. 13 Oklahoma, No. 15 Texas Tech and No. 18 Oklahoma State, it's unranked Texas (5-2, 4-0) that can take sole possession of first place over the idle Bears with a win at home Saturday against Kansas.

Texas coach Mack Brown says his team's confidence has changed completely from a month ago, when the Longhorns started 1-2 and were coming off back-to-back losses to BYU and Mississippi.
