Rivalry week still has the Bedlam Game at least. Thanksgiving used to be the traditional home Texas-Texas A&M, but the Aggies’ move to the SEC put a stop to that. Texas will play host to TCU this week, and A&M will face Missouri,...

The Big 12 may be one of the most interesting leagues from top to bottom in 2012-13, but the smart pick at the top remains, as always, Kansas. The Jayhawks have won at least a share of the last eight Big 12 regular season titles, including the...
