A three-way tie for the Big 12 South title is just one of many scenarios that could come to fruition.

If OSU beats OU, then Texas Tech would win the Big 12 South with a victory over Baylor and advance to the Big 12 championship game, having defeated Texas head-to-head.

But, if Baylor upsets the Red Raiders, then Texas would win the South with a win over Texas A&M, even if OU won Bedlam, since the Longhorns have the head-to-head edge over the Sooners.

If A&M knocked off Texas for the third year in a row, OU would clinch the South with a Bedlam victory.

In summation: Texas should root for Baylor, Tech should root for OSU and OU should root for A&M.
