    Big 12 Schedules Two Games for Championship Saturday

    UT/BU and OSU/OU. Great decision by the conference to increase our exposure. Also opens 2 TV spots earlier in the year.

    ****, they could have just had Texas and Oklahoma play that weekend. Seems like more often than not that would be the Championship game. I didn't even know you could play games that weekend though?

    Yup. UCLA/USC use to play in between the ACC/SEC championship games and the Big 12 Championship.

    The Big 10 has never done it, but the Pac 10 has done it. USC/UCLA was always that day. Hell, until 2010 the Big 10 had never played on Thanksgiving.

    I wont be surprised if in future years UT/OU is moved to Jerryworld and Championship Saturday. It makes way to much sense, just have to break tradition.

    While they didnt play conference games that weekend, both Wisconsin and Illinois have played noncon games on championship weekend the last couple years.

    I dont see this happening just due to that tradition, as well as the amount of improvements the cotton bowl has done to keep that game going.

    I completely agree. That would have been perfect to have the Texas and Oklahoma game that weekend but I guess they have to keep that at cotton bowl stadium during the Texas state fair to keep the tradition. OU/OSU is still a good rivalry to have that weekend.

    At least they are doing this year by year. Any team that has a chance at a National Championship will get a game moved to that weekend.

    Having grown up in OK, I don't foresee the OU/TX game leaving the state fair anytime soon.

    It would have been Texas vs. A&M but A&M fans threw a huge **** fit about it. Many more people here talking about that than "going" to the SEC.

    Understandably they wouldnt want to move it though. Having the thanksgiving game and thanksgiving tailgate is kind of a big tradition, and being down there you know how they are with any tradition at A&M.

    That's for sure.

    And for the weirdness factor the guy that comes on stage is the new University President and this is his new "tradition":

    OU/Texas will never not be in October @ the fair. Only way it happens is even that stadium falls down

    Re: Big 12 Schedules Two Games for Championship Saturday

    Could Iowa State get a December game?

    Edit: I mean in the future, probably not this year.
