2012 Big 12 Football Standings: Texas tied for 3rd place at 5-3

The Longhorns head to Kansas State trying to play spoiler in the 2012 season finale.


As the 2012 college football season enters its final week, the Big 12 Conference title is still up for grabs. Kansas State and Oklahoma are tied atop the conference standings at 7-1, with the Wildcats holding the tiebreaker after their head-to-head upset win in Norman in September. The Wildcats had a bye on Saturday, giving them plenty of time to recover from their blowout loss to the Baylor Bears. Now the Texas Longhorns come calling to Manhattan, with Mack Brown's group using an extended week to recover from their own ugly loss.

The Longhorns are currently in third place at 5-3, and can only play spoiler at this point. The loss to TCU pushed them into a tie for third with Oklahoma State, who fell in overtime in the Bedlam Series this weekend. The winless Kansas Jayhawks are currently the only Big 12 team that is not bowl eligible. With one game to go, here are the complete Big 12 standings with conference record first, and overall record listed second:

Kansas State 7-1 10-1
Oklahoma 7-1 9-2
Texas 5-3 8-3
Oklahoma State 5-3 7-4
TCU 4-4 7-4
Texas Tech 4-5 7-5
West Virginia 3-5 6-5
Baylor 3-5 6-5
Iowa State 3-6 6-6
Kansas 0-8 1-10
