College football schedule 2012: Wildcats look for BCS berth against Texas

Tim Heitman-US PRESSWIRE

The Kansas State Wildcats can clinch the Big 12 title on Saturday with a win over Texas.

The No. 7 Kansas State Wildcats are looking to lock up a BCS bowl berth on Saturday when they host the No. 23 Texas Longhorns.

The BCS looked like a foregone conclusion for the Wildcats (10-1, 7-1) just a couple of weeks ago, but that was before Kansas State -- then undefeated and No. 1 in the BCS rankings -- were upset by the Baylor Bears. Now with just one loss on the season, the Wildcats suddenly find themselves still needing a win to hold off the Oklahoma Sooners, who also have one loss. Kansas State holds the tie-breaker with the Sooners after defeating them earlier this season.

Helping Oklahoma into the BCS certainly isn't something the Longhorns (8-3, 5-3) likely want to do, but a win over the Big 12's top team would go a long way in helping Texas' own bowl prospects.

Meanwhile, the conference's lone non-bowl-eligible team, the Kansas Jayhawks (1-10, 0-8), wrap up a woeful first season under head coach Charlie Weis on Saturday when they hit the road to face the West Virginia Mountaineers (6-5, 3-5).

Kansas State and Texas meet at 7 p.m. CT on Saturday. Kansas and West Virginia kick off at 1:30 p.m. CT.
