The Big 12 Conference is well represented in the latest BCS poll released Sunday. Five teams from the Big 12 made the list headed by Texas at No. 7. The next conference team is not until No. 19 with Oklahoma, but three Big 12 schools immediately follow. Missouri comes in at 20, followed by Texas A&M and Nebraska.
Missouri, coming off a 41-21 Homecoming win against Kansas State, will collide with Oklahoma this weekend. The Tigers head to Lincoln for a showdown with North foe Cornhuskers the following week in what could decide the division crown.
A last second field goal doomed Nebraska in a 22-20 loss to Texas Saturday. The Huskers could have four running backs rush for over 500 yards this season for only the second time in school history. The Huskers should have an easy time against Oklahoma State this week before having two consecutive games back-to-back versus Missouri and Texas A&M.
The Aggies have already knocked off Mizzou 25-19, it was the first loss of the season for the Tigers. A&M escaped Oklahoma State 34-33 Saturday, and has a date with Baylor this weekend. If the Aggies are going to make any noise the rest of this year, they will definitely have their work cut out from them. After Baylor, Oklahoma and Nebraska make trips to College Station then it is on the road against Texas.
