Conference play begins this week for the Big 12, and for the first time this season, each school that is in action plays on Saturday. Even better, it begins with two matchups of teams that can contend this year. Oklahoma State travels to College Station in a game where everyone in the Big 12 will be cheering for the Pokes. Later, Oklahoma will be host to Missouri as the Sooners look for revenge after last year's stinging defeat in Columbia. It's also a light week of action in the Big 12, with only six teams in action.
Nationally, you should keep an eye on Arkansas' trip to Tuscaloosa to face the Crimson Tide when the K-State/Miami game is on commercial. Later, jump back and forth between the Oklahoma/Missouri tilt and LSU's visit to Morgantown, W.Va. For a full rundown of the weekend's action, don't miss Sean Keeley's College Football Buffet.
