Missouri plays OU in San Antonio on Saturday night, seeking its first conference title since 1969. The 10 longest championship droughts among BCS-conference teams:
9. Oklahoma State: 1976 Big Eight tri-championship OSU's only title. 9. (tie) Kentucky: 1976 SEC co-championship only title since Bear Bryant's 1950 team that beat OU in the Sugar Bowl. 8. Missouri: 1969 Big Eight co-champion played Penn State in the Orange Bowl; no January bowls since. 7. Kansas: 1968 Big Eight co-champion played Penn State in the Orange Bowl; no January bowl since. 5. Minnesota: 1967 co-championship was 16th Big Ten title but none in the last 40 years. 5. (tie) Indiana: 1967 Big Ten co-championship was only league title since 1945. 4. Ole Miss: 1963 SEC champ, but not even Archie Manning produced a title since. 3. Mississippi State: 1941 SEC title is Bulldogs' only conference crown, but Jackie Sherrill did win the West Division in 1998. 2. Vanderbilt: 1923 Southern Conference champ, when that league was forerunner of SEC. 1. Iowa State: 1912 Missouri Valley champ, when that forerunner of the Big Eight included Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas, Washington of St. Louis and Drake.
