Big 12 championship Saturday without a title game

By STEPHEN HAWKINS

The Big 12 will have its own championship Saturday, even without technically having a title game.

Both remaining regular-season games in the conference's round-robin schedule have championship implications.

Baylor coach Art Briles says whoever made the schedule "is looking pretty smart right now."

Sixth-ranked Oklahoma State can clinch the league's Big 12 BCS berth with a win over No. 18 Oklahoma. The Bedlam game in Stillwater should wrap up about the same time that No. 9 Baylor kicks off its regular-season finale at home against No. 23 Texas.

If Oklahoma State loses, the Bears and Longhorns suddenly are playing for the outright conference title. Or they will be playing for a share of the Big 12 title and to be the league's likely representative in the Cotton Bowl.
