KSU vs Baylor @6PM. Pokes want KSU to win for sure. As discussed earlier in this thread...here are our options to get in the CCG:

Option 1: ISU loses to West Virginia next week and KSU wins out (against Baylor tonight and Texas next week).

Result: Bedlam 2.0

Option 2: OU loses 1 of its next two games (against Baylor next week or WVU the week after).

Result: ISU vs OSU.

Realistically, option 1 is our best bet. But none of this matters if we do not finish strong against TCU and Baylor. Especially BAYLOR. We haven’t won since 2017 against them.

Glad we took care of Tech. They had a 2 winning streak against us.

Here is a crazy scenario. OU has to cancel another game because of COVID. Since they don't have any other open weeks the game will just be canceled. We win out and have a better winning percentage so it doesn't go to tiebreakers. OU gets left out because of COVID.

From the big 12 tiebreaker page: "Championship Game Participants. The two teams that complete the regular season with the highest winning percentage(s) will be the representatives in the Conference Championship Game. The team that wins the championship game will be the Big 12 Champion."

That's not taking into consideration the COVID participation rules established this year.

"The Power 5 conferences all adopted policies requiring divisional champions to have played no less than one game fewer than the average amount of conference games played by all conference teams. Example: a 4-1 team trumps a 5-1 team as long as the four-win team defeated the five-win team during the regular season."


OU could miss another game and still beat OSU with 1 less win. However, they can't miss 2 if we are able to finish our remaining 2.

What is that from? I suspect that example is just someone's intepretation. The rules I've seen have only set the minimum number of games to play in the CCG.

Does that include a conference that does not have divisions?

Really bad clock management from KSU. But Baylor got lucky with regards to the Brewer fumble. I think that was the right call, but the clock stopped and it gave Brewer time to clear his head.

In the scenario I was describing we need WVU to upset ISU and then would likely lose to OU creating a 3-way tie for 4th between Texas, WVU and K-State. Records against TCU would be the likely tie-breaker.

Current records against TCU:
Texas 0-1 (eliminated)
WVU 1-0 (owns head-to-head over K-State)
K-State 1-0 (eliminated in head-to-head)

WVU doesn't help us in our tie-breaker.
