Today's the last day of the Big 12's regular season. If the finish is anything like the first 92 days have been, we'll likely have a wild ride.
Here are some morning links to get you ready for today's games. They'll likely be much tastier than those turkey leftovers staring at you from the refrigerator.
- Chuck Carlton of the Dallas Morning News details the scenarios as Saturday's games will finish the Big 12's regular season.
- Tom Shatel of the Omaha World-Herald writes that Nebraska had to overcome some of Bo Pelini's wacky strategy to beat Colorado -- thanks to a record field goal from Alex Henery.
- Jake Trotter of the Oklahoman writes that with a big finish, Oklahoma could be judged as one of the greatest offensive college football teams in history. With three potential games remaining, the Sooners could become the first team since 1904 to score 700 points in a season.
- After becoming bowl eligible in back-to-back seasons for the first time in school history, Topeka Capital-Journal reporter Tully Corcoran wonders how good Kansas really is this season.
- Maureen Fulton of the Toledo Blade writes that Missouri defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus is expected to interview with officials for Toledo's vacant head-coaching position. Other potential candidates include former Iowa State head coach Dan McCarney and Arizona defensive coordinator Mark Stoops.
- A Texas Tech senior class that has notched 36 victories -- the most in school history over a four-year span -- will finish its home career today in Lubbock against Baylor, the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal's Don Williams writes.
