Big 12 Football Standings 2012: Texas' loss costs Oklahoma outright title

R. Yeatts

With its loss to Kansas State, Texas cut rival Oklahoma deep by keeping the Sooners from winning the outright conference championship.

The Texas Longhorns cost themselves a chance to finish in third place outright in the Big 12 Conference, and also cost the rival Oklahoma Sooners a chance at an outright league title, by falling to the Kansas State Wildcats on Saturday night, 42-24. Kansas State clinched a spot in a BCS bowl with the win.

The Sooners held on to defeat the TCU Horned Frogs on Saturday, 21-14, to earn a share of the title. They'll finish well below the Wildcats in the BCS standings, which will likely keep the Sooners out of the BCS. Meanwhile, TCU's loss kept them from finishing with a winning conference record in its inaugural season in the Big 12.

Finising three games behind the co-champions are the Longhorns and Oklahoma State Cowboys, both of whom finished conference play at 5-4. The Horned Frogs, Baylor Bears, Texas Tech Red Raiders and West Virginia Mountaineers all ended the league slate at 4-5, while the Iowa State Cyclones are just behind at 3-6.

The Kansas Jayhawks failed to win a Big 12 game, finishing the year at 0-9 in conference play and 1-11 overall.
