WACO, Texas (AP) By time No. 9 Baylor and No. 23 Texas kick off their regular season finale, they could be playing a de facto Big 12 championship game with a Fiesta Bowl trip on the line.
The winner of Saturday's game is guaranteed at least a share of the Big 12 title. The last game ever at Baylor's Floyd Casey Stadium becomes even bigger than that for the Bears (10-1, 7-1) and Longhorns (8-3, 7-1) if sixth-ranked Oklahoma State loses at home against No. 18 Oklahoma earlier in the day.
