    Looks like 6-4 to me if tossups given to the B12. I give WVU and Ku the best chances of winning in my B12 winning selections.

    Baylor
    (5-1) at Florida

    - Series record tied at 1-1 with UF winning in a 2018 Challenge matchup. Both 2019 NCAA tournament participants.

    Iowa State (3-3) at Auburn
    - ISU has won two consecutive in a 2-1 series with the last game in 2013. Both competed in the 2019 NCAA tournament.

    Tennessee at Kansas (4-2)
    - KU leads the series 3-1, including an 87-81 OT win in the Preseason NIT championship game last season. Both were 2019 NCAA Tournament teams.

    K-State (3-3) at Alabama
    - K-State leads 2-1 with wins in the last two games in 2009 and 2011. K-State played in the 2019 NCAA Championship while Alabama was in the NIT.

    Mississippi State at Oklahoma (4-2)
    - MSU holds a 3-0 series advantage. Both are 2019 NCAA tournament teams.

    Oklahoma State (4-2) at Texas A&M
    - OSU holds a 31-18 record with the last meeting a TAMU win in 2018.

    TCU (4-2) at Arkansas
    - UA has a 104-38 advantage with the last meeting in 1991. Both competed in the 2019 NIT.

    LSU at Texas (3-3)
    - LSU leads the series 19-11 with the last matchup in 2006-07. UT won the 2019 NIT title while LSU competed in the NCAA tournament.

    Kentucky at Texas Tech (4-2)
    - UK leads the series 4-0 with the last matchup in 1994. Both played in the 2019 NCAA tournament.

    The Big 12 may only win 2 or 3 of these games.

    I’ll say Kansas, WVU, and OU.

    Baylor gets upset, everyone else loses as they should.

    I wrote this in the brawl thread.

    If charged, I'd have given season suspensions to both Love and DeSousa. 3 games to anyone who threw a fist. And 1 game to anyone else coming off the bench and entering the fight scene. The B12 nor either program can whine, complain or rationalize anymore if this happens again because they should have given far more severe penalties for this nonsense. This was a disgusting display and that applies to K-State's administration of it as well.

    Furthermore, the fight was not the result of a steal or block that followed, both of which were within the rules of play. It was the result of DeSousa standing over Gordon in some sort of overlord display that's not new to Ku basketball remembering as I do Thomas Robinson doing the exact same thing to K-State's Thomas Gipson. Self's program is now under internal pressure (one prominent woman, I might add) for this and many more outside-the-lines behaviors. Good for Ku supporters who are starting to question what's going on within Self's program.

    It's possible for only two Big 12 teams to go 2-0 in Big East/SEC challenges this season:
    * Baylor
    * Iowa State :eek:

    For all the talk about Tech having a great home environment, it’s garbage with the team ranked in top 20 down by ~8 to Kentucky with 10 minutes left.

    That was the worst illegal screen call I've ever seen.

    Edit: Refs got it right.

    Richards and Hagans too much for Tech. Gritty road win for Ky.
