Big 12 Conference locations

The Big 12 Conference is a college athletic conference of twelve schools located mostly in the central United States. It is a member of the NCAA's Division I for all sports; its football teams compete in the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS; formerly Division I-A), the higher of two levels of NCAA Division I football competition. Member schools are located in Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Texas.

The conference was officially formed on February 25, 1994, when the former Big Eight Conference joined with four Texas schools that had been members of the Southwest Conference, which had just disbanded.[1] Athletic competition in the conference commenced on August 31, 1996. Big 12 headquarters is located in Irving, Texas, which is a suburb of Dallas. According to the Big 12 Conference's website, the use of the alternate names "Big Twelve" and "Big XII" are incorrect; the trademarked name of the conference is "Big 12 Conference" (notwithstanding the Roman numeral XII featured on the conference logo).[2]

The conference is split into two divisions for most major sports—a South Division consisting of the Oklahoma and Texas schools, and a North Division consisting of the other six former Big Eight schools.

The Big 12 is the former Big Eight plus the four Texas schools, but considers itself a separate conference and does not claim the Big Eight's history.

Football

There are many national football powerhouses in the Big 12 Conference, and when the league was formed, it was decided that the top team from the South Division would play the top team from the North Division at the end of the season to determine the conference champion.

Teams play eight conference games a season, facing all five opponents within its own division and three teams from the opposite division. Inter-divisional play is a "three-on, three-off" system, where teams will play three teams from the other division on a home-and-home basis for two seasons, and then play the other three foes from the opposite side for a two-year home-and-home.

This format has come under considerable criticism, especially from fans at Nebraska and Oklahoma, who are denied a yearly matchup between two of college football's most storied programs. The Oklahoma–Nebraska rivalry was one of the most intense rivalries in college football history. (Until 2006, the teams had never met in the Big 12 Championship.) There has been talk of modifying the current format to allow each team to have one permanent opponent from the opposite division (as is the case in the Southeastern Conference and Atlantic Coast Conference), or for Nebraska and Oklahoma to play a non-conference game when the two teams are not scheduled to meet in conference play.

Championship Game

The Big 12 Championship Game is held by the Big 12 Conference each year. The championship game pits the Big 12 North Division champion against the Big 12 South Division champion in a game held after the regular season has been completed. The first championship game was held during the 1996 season. Since the 1996 season, the most football championships have been held at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri. The 2008 Big 12 Championship Game was held at Arrowhead, while the 2009 game was played at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas with the Texas Longhorns defeating the Nebraska Cornhuskers 13-12.

Rivalries

The Big 12 Conference has many rivalries among its member schools, primarily in football. Most of the rivalries existed before the Big 12 was established. The Kansas-Missouri rivalry is the longest running in the Big 12, being played for 118 years; however the Texas–Oklahoma rivalry is also unique, as it too was a major rivalry decades before the two schools were in the same conference. Some of the longstanding football rivalries between Big 12 schools include:

Through 2008

Other notable series

  • Kansas v. Nebraska - The series began in 1892 and has been played 116 times, making it the second most-played series in the Big 12 and tied for second oldest. The series is also the longest uninterrupted series in Division I FBS, having been played each year since 1906[16] While longstanding, the series is not known as a rivalry due to Nebraska's dominance. Nebraska once won 36 games in a row (the second most consecutive wins over a team in college football history) and currently leads the series 89-23-3.[17]
  • Baylor v. Texas - The series began in 1901 and has been played 99 times, including annually since 1946. Although Texas maintains a dominating 73–22–4 lead in the series and holds the series' longest winning streaks of 16, 11, and 11 games, Baylor has at times been very competitive, such as from 1913 to 1942, 1951 to 1957, and 1974 to 1992.[18]

Men's basketball

Although standings in the conference are combined and not split among divisions, the schedule is structured as if the schools were split into two divisions. Teams play a home-and-home against teams within its division and a single game against teams from the opposite division for a total of 16 conference games. This denies Oklahoma and Oklahoma State, formerly in the Big Eight, two games a season against their opponents from that former conference, but does allow most of the other traditional rivalries to be played home-and-home.
