No. 16 K-State, Iowa State With Plenty On The Line


December 2nd, 2011 by Jim Field

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) – One of the only games that No. 16 Kansas State was expected to win during the Big 12 portion of its schedule was against Iowa State.  That was back in August, when the Wildcats were picked to finish near the bottom of the Big 12, and the Cyclones even worse. That was back before Kansas State strung together nine wins through its first 11 games, and put itself in position to win a share of the Big 12 championship.  That was back before Iowa State stunned then-No. 2 Oklahoma State.  Suddenly, a late-season meeting between also-rans has generated some national interest. Kansas State can win a share of the conference title by beating the Cyclones and getting some help from Oklahoma, which plays the Cowboys later Saturday night.

Badgers, Spartans Ready for Rare Big Ten Rematch


December 2nd, 2011 by Jim Field

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Beating Wisconsin once isn’t good enough for Michigan State.  The Spartans will have to do it all over again Saturday night when Kirk Cousins hopes to lead No. 11 Michigan State to its first Rose Bowl appearance since 1988. No. 15 Wisconsin is chasing back-to-back conference titles for only the third time in school history.  The inaugural Big Ten title game is a rematch of one of college football’s most exciting games of 2011. The Spartans won 37-31 after Michigan State receiver Keith Nichol pulled in a last-second pass and lunged across the goal line Wisconsin (10-2) is the only Football Bowl Subdivision team ranked in the top five in scoring offense (44.8 points) and scoring defense (15.2).

No. 18 Frogs Seek Perfect MWC Ending vs. UNLV


December 2nd, 2011 by Jim Field

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) – TCU is looking for another perfect ending in the Mountain West Conference.  The 18th-ranked Horned Frogs (9-2, 6-0 MWC) can clinch their third consecutive unblemished league title with a win Saturday at home over UNLV. They have won a record 23 consecutive Mountain West games since November 2008.  This will be TCU’s final Mountain West game before moving to the Big 12 next season.  TCU is a nearly six-touchdown favorite at home to win the regular season finale against UNLV (2-9, 1-5). The Rebels have lost four in a row, and seven of eight.  The Frogs have a six-game winning streak, the biggest being a 36-35 victory at Boise State three weeks ago.

Baylor’s Griffin Has Heisman Chance Against Texas


December 2nd, 2011 by Jim Field

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) – Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III has one last chance to impress Heisman Trophy voters.  Griffin and the No. 19 Bears (8-3, 5-3 Big 12) host Texas on Saturday. Another big game against the Big 12′s best defense could persuade undecided Heisman voters he’s the best player in the country.  Baylor fans will be wondering if this will be Griffin’s last game in Waco. The junior says he hasn’t decided whether he’ll return next season or leave for the NFL. Griffin already has earned his degree in political science.  Texas hopes to knock Griffin out of the Heisman race instead of trying to help him win it.  The Bears will be playing for their first nine-win season since 1986. Texas (7-4, 4-4) is trying to avoid a second-consecutive season with a losing conference record.
