Big 12 Football By The Numbers: What Does Season Finale Mean for K-State? Difference Between 2nd, 4th

Oklahoma vs. Iowa State

Only two Big 12 teams - Texas Tech and Kansas - will finish below .500 overall in regular-season play, which comes to end this weekend with three conference games scheduled.

Oklahoma State has already clinched at least a share of the Big 12 football crown, but two other teams in action on the conference's final regular-season football weekend also can gain a share of the title.

Two of the six Big 12 teams in the current BCS standings - No. 3 Oklahoma State and No. 10 Oklahoma - will meet in Stillwater Saturday in their annual Bedlam grudge match. The winner will earn the conference's automatic BCS bid to the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, Ariz., because both own the tiebreaker over No. 11 Kansas State, which hosts upstart Iowa State this weekend.

The five Big 12 teams ranked in the BCS top 25 are 2. Oklahoma State, 10. Oklahoma, 11. Kansas State, 17. Baylor, 22. Texas and 25. Missouri.

Seven conference teams will finish above .500, tied for the most in any BCS conference.

Six Big 12 teams rank in the top 14 nationally in total offense: 2. Baylor (576.7 yards a game), 3. Oklahoma State (562.6), 4. Oklahoma (547.9), 7. Texas A&M (497.0), 13. Missouri (472.4) and 14. Texas Tech (470.6).

Here are some other noteworthy numbers from big 12 football this week:

2 - Kansas State's Collin Klein is No. 2 in the country in scoring and the only quarterback in the top 37 (averaging 13.7 points a game).

5 - Baylor's five Big 12 wins is the most in school history.

6 - Number of overtime games in the Big 12 this season, the most among Division I schools. Four of those extra-session games have come in conference play.

8 - Eight of the 10 conference teams are ranked in the top 30 nationally for most difficult schedule: Kansas (4), Iowa State (7), Oklahoma (8), Oklahoma State (14), Baylor and Texas A&M (tied for 16th), Texas (24) and Kansas State (27).

18 - Texas Tech's string of 18 consecutive seasons of bowl eligibility will end this year. Also coming to an end is the Red Raiders' streak of 16 consecutive winning seasons.

40 - Before Saturday's Border Showdown with Kansas, Missouri had scored only 40 points total in the third quarter. The Tigers scored 14 third-quarter points against Kansas to put the game away.

42 - Rushing attempts for Baylor's Terrance Ganaway for 246 yards against Texas Tech, both single-game school records.

80 - Since 1999, Texas has scored 80 non-offensive touchdowns, the second most nationally.

83 - In Texas A&M's six losses this season, the Aggies, who started the season ranked No. 8 in the country, have been outscored 83-0 in the third quarter.

237 - Texas A&M held Texas to 237 yards of total offense in a losing effort. That was a season-low for the A&M defensive unit. Texas won the game on a walk-off field goal.

500 - Oklahoma has amassed 500 or more yards of total offense in eight of its 11 games this season.

1,014 - Total kick-return yards this season by D.J. Beshears of Kansas, a school single-season best.
