The Big 12 released its 2012 football schedule yesterday. No surprises for K-State, who opens with three non-conference home games before kicking off the conference slate in Norman, Okla. The Wildcats will visit both of the conference's newcomers next year, traveling to Morgantown, W.Va., on October 20 and visiting Fort Worth, Texas, on November 10. My personal favorite part of the schedule? Texas. Manhattan. December.
K-State defensive back Allen Chapman was arrested on Saturday for driving on a suspended license. Such a minor thing, but so easy to prevent.
Taking a page out of Texas Tech's book, KU switched to a triangle-and-two defense after K-State took the lead in the second half Monday. The result? An 11-0 run and a 10-point lead at the end of the next six-and-a-half minutes, and that was pretty much all she wrote.
The fan of the game on Monday was a kindergartner from Olathe who refused to color a jayhawk on Kansas Day at school. Good for you, Emma.
Big 12 Basketball
Texas did what K-State couldn't when it picked up a 69-58 win over Oklahoma in Norman last night ... In one of the lowest-scoring games in Big 12 history, Texas A&M beat Texas Tech, 48-37. in fact, the two teams scored the exact same number of total points as they did in their football meeting, which resulted in a 45-40 Texas A&M win.
West Virginia to the Big 12
It's finally officially official. West Virginia and the Big East have settled their lawsuit, terms confidential, of course. The Mountaineers will join the Big 12 in July.
