Big 12 links: Friday night lights show memorable games

Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Griffin

BRISTOL, Conn. -- Deep in the heart of the Big East Conference, my mind still wanders back to what is happening in the Big 12.

It was a little hard not to after watching two rare Friday night games. Funny what playing those will do for your national attention, isn't it?

Watching Kansas fritter away a victory in a pulsating game for the ages against South Florida got me started. And it was just as interesting watching Baylor QB Robert Griffin turn my computer screen into his own personal playground against beleaguered Washington State. I couldn't get away from Big 12 football.

There will be more of the same Saturday during my turn in the ESPN studios. Here are a few of the links that caught my attention this morning from back home.
