Big 12 About to Heat Up After Sleepy First 3 Weeks 09/17/12
The Big 12's big bore is about to finally come to an end.
The league that dominated headlines for a variety of reasons during the offseason, not the least of which was whether it would continue to exist, has been a blip on the national radar once games finally started against a dismal lineup of non-conference weaklings.
That should change starting Saturday night.
Sixth-ranked Oklahoma plays No. 15 Kansas State in a game between two of the league's top teams, one that could go a long way toward determining who wins the conference title.
It's a far cry from the likes of James Madison, Western Illinois and Grambling State that the league's programs have been beating up the past few weeks.
