Big 12 Digest

By  | 

(AP) - No. 6 Oklahoma and No. 12 West Virginia meet in a regular-season finale with the winner headed to the Big 12 championship game. The loser could also make it to the December 1 title game, but would need help. The Sooners and Mountaineers play Friday night, after Texas plays at Kansas. The Longhorns clinch a spot in the Big 12 title game if they beat the Jayhawks.

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Garrison Mathews had 23 points, Kenny Cooper scored 17 and Lipscomb held on to upset No. 18 TCU 73-64, giving the Bisons their first win over a Top 25 team. Lipscomb, the ASUN Conference preseason favorite, had been 0-13 against ranked teams. TCU had won 18 consecutive November games since 2015.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Jarrett Culver poured in 26 points, Matt Mooney scored 15 and Texas Tech overcame a slow start to beat Nebraska 70-52 on Tuesday night in the title game of the Hall of Fame Classic. Isaac Copeland Jr. led the Huskers with 20 points. Southern California routed Missouri State 99-80 in the third-place game.

PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) - Fourth-ranked Virginia and No. 25 Wisconsin headline the field for this week's Battle 4 Atlantis in the Bahamas. The Cavaliers open play Wednesday against Middle Tennessee, while the Badgers face Stanford. The other teams in the field are Oklahoma, Florida, Butler, Dayton and Middle Tennessee. The tournament concludes Friday.

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma State and Oregon have agreed to a home-and-home football series for 2025 and 2026. Oklahoma State made the announcement in a news release. Oklahoma State will visit Autzen Stadium in Eugene, Oregon, on September 6, 2025. The Ducks will travel to Stillwater, Oklahoma, on September 12, 2026. The two schools have squared off only once before, with Oregon winning the 2008 Holiday Bowl 42-31. Eighteen players on the field that day eventually were drafted into the NFL.

UNDATED (AP) - West Virginia quarterback Will Grier finally is getting his shot at playing Oklahoma. Grier missed last year's meeting with a broken finger and the Mountaineers were blown out in Norman, Oklahoma. The senior will play his final home game Friday. He can send 12th-ranked West Virginia into the Dec. 1 league championship game with a win over the sixth-ranked Sooners.

AMES, Iowa (AP) - No. 25 Iowa State saw a five-game winning streak snapped at Texas last weekend. The Cyclones still have plenty to play for. A win against Kansas State at home on Saturday night would make this year's team the first in Iowa State history to win six conference games. Iowa State is well aware of the task because Kansas State has won 10 straight games in the series.
