2011 Big 12 Football Standings: Bedlam To Decide Conference Title, BCS Berth

The Big 12's champion will come from the state of Oklahoma, while Kansas State will try to cap off of a huge comeback season with a win over Iowa State.


There's little left in the way of positioning in the final week of the Big 12 season, but a few games will sort out bowl positioning, and first place and a BCS bid are both still in play.

The Big 12 title, a BCS berth and possibly a spot in the national title game will be determined at Bedlam on Saturday between Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. There's a slim chance Oklahoma State could leapfrog idle Alabama for the No. 2 position in the BCS and face LSU for the BCS National Championship. Barring that, the winner of the game will take the conference title and at least a position in the BCS (likely the Fiesta Bowl).

Kansas State is eliminated by virtue of their two losses coming to both the Sooners and Cowboys, but with a win over Iowa State, the Wildcats could lock up a bid to the Cotton Bowl. Meanwhile, Texas and Baylor can't advance much in the conference standings, but the winner of the game could jump to the Holiday Bowl.
