Big 12 Football Predictions, Schedule – Week 12

Big 12 football predictions and schedule for Week 12 of the 2016 season. Wins by Oklahoma and Oklahoma State this week would set up Bedlam as the conference championship game. 

Following two out-of-conference losses to begin the season, Oklahoma has won seven straight games and is in line to claim its tenth Big 12 title. Standing in the Sooners’ way is a West Virginia team that the Sooners have beaten each of the four pervious times they’ve met as conference opponents.

Should the Sooners once again take care of the Mountaineers, the only other team that could take the conference title from Bob Stoops and company is in-state rival Oklahoma State. Mike Gundy’s Cowboys must first take on TCU in Fort Worth, the site of a 33-point victory by the Horned Frogs in 2014.

Should both the Sooners and Cowboys come out victorious in Week 12, it would once again elevate Bedlam to the status of de facto conference championship game. The Sooners came out victorius in the 2015 game with similar implications, and have taken nine of the 11 Bedlam games since Gundy took over in Stillwater.

Elsewhere, Charlie Strong will be coaching for his job as Texas as the Longhorns take on a 1-7 Kansas team. Most people around the Longhorn program believe that Strong’s only chance at staying in charge in Austin is to win his final two games. While Texas hasn’t lost to the Jayhawks in nearly eight decades, the following test against TCU wil certainly be more difficult. Strong is 0-2 against the Horned Frogs since taking over Texas, losing by more than five touchdowns each time.

Below is the full schedule for every Week 12 Big 12 game, as well as predictions for each game in Week 12.
