NORMAN, Okla. -- The Oklahoma Sooners (10-2) make their sixth appearance
in the past eight seasons
in the Big 12 Championship Game on Saturday night at
the Alamodome. OU, with conference crowns
in 2006, 2004, 2002 and 2000, is aiming to become the
first Big 12 team to win back-to-back titles.
The Sooners handed top-ranked Mizzou (11-1) its only loss of the season, 41-31, in Norman on October 13. Since that loss, MU has reeled off six wins and jumped to No. 1 in the BCS. Saturday's rematch in the conference title game is set for 7 p.m. CT in San Antonio. SoonerSports.com provides complete coverage at Big 12 Championship Central.
