Phillips 66 Big 12 Baseball Championship Tiebreaking Procedures
November 16, 2005
The eight teams with the best conference records (based on winning percentage) in regular season competition will qualify for the Phillips 66 Big 12 Championship -- a two-division, double-elimination format.

In the event of a tie or ties in the standings, the following tie-breaking system will be implemented.
  1. If two teams are tied, head-to-head competition will be used to break a tie.
  2. If two teams remain tied, the winner of the first game of the Conference series between the two tied teams will be used.
  3. If two teams remain tied, there will be a comparison of the records of the tied teams against the highest place team(s) in descending order from top to bottom until the tie is broken; or,
  4. If two teams remain tied, there will be a drawing to determine the seed or qualification for the tournament;
  5. If three or more teams are tied, there will be a comparison of head-to-head records in a ‘mini round-robin’ of tied teams, followed by steps (1), (2), (3), and (4). Once a team has been eliminated from a multi-team comparison, it is dropped from further comparisons.
The Phillips 66 Big 12 Championship winner earns the Big 12’s automatic berth into the NCAA Championship field.  If the event is terminated before completion, the highest remaining seed shall be the conference’s automatic qualifier. In the event that the Championship cannot be completed in entirety, the highest-seeded team of those remaining will be declared the automatic qualifier, regardless of when the Championship terminated.
