Big 12 football standings 2012: Kansas State, Oklahoma deadlocked up top

Brendan Maloney-US PRESSWIRE

Oklahoma and Kansas State have matching 7-1 records atop the Big 12, while Texas sits in third.

With one week left in the 2012 NCAA football season, Oklahoma and Kansas State are deadlocked atop the Big 12 standings with matching 7-1 records. Texas is right behind them at 5-3 in the league, along with Oklahoma State.

Oklahoma visits TCU next Saturday while Kansas State hosts the Longhorns. If the Sooners and Wildcats are still tied after next week, Kansas State will be the Big 12 champion due to the head-to-head tiebreaker. The Wildcats won the teams' contest on Sept. 22, 24-19 in Norman.

Texas, though out of the race for a conference championship, can cap a nine-win season and disrupt Kansas State's BCS hopes with a win next Saturday.

Every Big 12 team is bowl eligible except for the Kansas Jayhawks, who are last in the league at 0-8 and 1-10 overall. So really this last week comes down to positioning in the final standings. Only 2.5 games separate the third-place Longhorns with the eighth-place Baylor Bears, so a lot can still change even though most teams only have one game left.
