Big 12 football: OU vs. West Virginia the top game of 2012

by Michael Baldwin Published: August 26, 2012

5. Texas at OSU

Sept. 29

The Cowboys won back-to-back games in Austin to end a 12-game losing streak against Texas. But OSU hasn't defeated the 'Horns in Stillwater since 1997, the year before Mack Brown arrived at UT.

6. West Virginia at Texas

Oct. 6

West Virginia's first Big 12 road game is in Austin, the week before the Red River rivalry. The early-season matchup should reveal a lot about the Longhorns and Mountaineers.

7. TCU at West Virginia

Nov. 3

Originally scheduled to be a showdown for the Big East title, the Big 12's two new members square off in Morgantown. By that time, it might be an elimination game for league title contenders.

8. OU at TCU

Dec. 1

The finale of a grueling five-game stretch for the Horned Frogs, who face OSU, West Virginia, Kansas State, Texas and OU to end their inaugural Big 12 season.

9. OSU at K- State

Nov. 3

The Cowboys won a classic last season on a night when an earthquake shook Stillwater. The rematch is OSU's second-toughest road game behind a late-season Bedlam showdown in Norman.

10. TCU at Texas

Nov. 22

The Longhorns' annual Thanksgiving Night matchup with rival Texas A&M disappeared when the Aggies bolted to the SEC. A matchup with the Frogs is a decent consolation prize.
