    [​IMG]Here's how the Big 12 divisions sit after 11 weeks:


    1. Oklahoma State (4-1)

    2. Baylor (4-2)

    3. Texas A&M (3-2)

    4. Oklahoma (3-2)

    5. Texas Tech (3-4)

    6. Texas (2-4)
    • Oklahoma State's win combined with Oklahoma's loss makes the Cowboys a pretty solid favorite in the division heading down the final stretch. There's little doubt they'll have to beat Oklahoma to do it, but with the way Oklahoma has looked away from home, that's looking pretty likely. Oklahoma State can now afford a loss to close the season, but it'll have to be this weekend in Austin and not against Oklahoma. This late in the season, the races are simplifying, but there are still a few teams still alive.
    • Oklahoma: To win, the Sooners have to simply win out, and by doing so, would hold the tiebreaker over Oklahoma State.
    • Baylor: The Bears need help from Oklahoma and Texas to beat Oklahoma State, and have to beat Texas A&M and Oklahoma to win the division.
    • Texas A&M: The Aggies are still in it, by virtue of a win over Oklahoma. They have to beat Nebraska, Texas and Baylor to close the season, and have Oklahoma and Texas beat Oklahoma State. Stiff odds, but it's not impossible.

    1. Nebraska (4-1)

    2. Missouri (3-2)

    3. Kansas State (3-3)

    4. Iowa State (3-3)

    5. Kansas (1-4)

    6. Colorado (0-5)
    • Nebraska looks like they have a stranglehold on this one after Missouri's loss. The Huskers managed to win in Ames without Taylor Martinez, Zac Lee and Alfonzo Dennard, and got a nice gift from Missouri when the Tigers slipped up in Lubbock later in the evening. The Huskers hold the tiebreaker on the only other three teams in the division with a remote chance to win the league, meaning it'll take a complete collapse for Nebraska to choke away the North. Missouri would need to win out and Nebraska would have to lose to any combination of two teams between Kansas, Colorado and at Texas A&M. I'm not sure if Turner Gill has any eligibility left, but the Jayhawks might want to check up on it when they get to Lincoln on Friday.
