Oklahoma at Oklahoma State

Dec. 3

The Big 12 no longer has a championship game, but this regular-season finale at Boone Pickens Stadium could serve the same purpose and provide even better theater. Both teams could arrive unbeaten. Even with one loss, a berth in the BCS national title game could be at stake.

Oklahoma State at Texas A&M

Sept. 24

Rarely is such an important Big 12 game played in September, but the winner of this showdown at Kyle Field will have some serious momentum for the remainder of the season. OSU went unbeaten on the road last year, but will be extremely hard-pressed to do so again this year.

Oklahoma vs. Texas

(at Dallas)

Oct. 8

It's been a decade since the Red River Rivalry wasn't forecast as the Big 12 game of the year, but here's where we're at thanks to the Longhorns going 5-7 last season. No matter what transpires leading up to this game, however, there figures to be high drama in the Cotton Bowl.

Texas A&M at Oklahoma

Nov. 5

This one could match two unbeatens, but could end in a thud based on recent history. The last time the Aggies won in Norman was 51-6 against the John Blake-coached Sooners in 1997. Bob Stoops is 6-0 at home against Texas A&M with an average victory margin of 38.7 points.

Oklahoma State at Missouri

Oct. 22

In this key matchup, the Cowboys will be coming off a game at Texas the previous week and will be one month removed from playing at Texas A&M. This contest could be put up or shut up time for OSU. If the Cowboys are able to sweep A&M, Texas and Missouri, look out.
