Current FB Release in PDF

One-third (10) of the Big 12’s 30 non-conference games feature matchups against teams from the power conferences (ACC, Big Ten, SEC, Pac-12), no other peer conference plays a higher percentage.

Big 12 non-conference opponents in 2014 include 11 teams that participated in 2013 bowl games as well as the past five BCS national champions, and both participants in last season’s title game.

The combined 2013 win percentage of the non-conference opponents featured on Big 12 schedules this season is the highest among the power conferences.

            Big 12:             214-168 (.560)
            Big Ten:            375-331 (.531)
            SEC:                 364-334 (.521) 
            ACC:                 361-333 (.520)
            Pac-12:            208-255 (.449)

The Big 12 has three of the nation’s four schools with schedules punctuated by three opponents that played in BCS Bowls last season.

            K-State: Auburn, Baylor, Oklahoma
            Oklahoma State: Florida State, Baylor, Oklahoma
            West Virginia: Alabama, Baylor, Oklahoma

The Big 12 is the only power conference in which every team plays each other. ACC, Big Ten and SEC programs will miss five league members while Pac-12 squads will not play two of their conference brethren. 

The Big 12 was one of three FBS leagues, and the only among the power conferences, in which every team had at least one win in 2013 conference  play.

Over the last five seasons, the Big 12 has had five different teams – half of  its membership - win a conference championship in football (Baylor, K-State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Texas). No other peer conference has had as many different champions since 2009.

In each season since round robin play began, the Big 12 champion was determined on the last week of the season.

Every Big 12 team returns at least one quarterback this season with starting experience. Only Oklahoma State, TCU and Texas started a senior QB at the conclusion of the 2013 season.
