It will be North vs. South in the final Big 12 championship game for the conference in its current two-division incarnation.
Which North team will face which South team still is somewhat up in the air, although there certainly is at least one obvious front-runner for those positions.
We'll get those answers tonight.
Feel free to migrate here as a live discussion thread tonight, if you want, since Ahearn Alley and I sort of pushed the other one down the page.
Discussion and predictions after the jump.
Note: Both of today's games will air on the Big 12 Network.

Well, good for you, Buffies. You made it into the NCAA Tournament. Now enjoy your final game as a Big 12 member, because I assure you that KU is going to kick you into next week, literally.
How can I be so sure? Because KU had a horrid shooting effort yesterday against Oklahoma State. Whenever that happens, you almost can bet house money that thee Jayhawks will come out strong the next day.
Add to that a Colorado team that will be playing its third game in three days, both relatively hard-fought, and what will be a chicken-packed Sprint Center, and you have the makings for a potential blowout.
2 p.m.: No. 2 Texas vs. No. 3 Texas A&M
- BracketCat: Texas 71, Texas A&M 64
- GAMER: Texas 70, Texas A&M 63
- Pomeroy: Texas 66, Texas A&M 58
- Sagarin: Texas 78, Texas A&M 71
Texas appeared to rediscover its stingy defense during a laugher against Oklahoma, highlighted by Dogus Balbay's excellent block of a Cade Davis layup.
That's bad news for Texas A&M, which failed even to keep it close in either match-up against Big Brother this year.
But the Aggies played quite possibly their best game of the season last night in demolishing Missouri, so maybe they'll give the Longhorns more of a battle this time. I certainly hope so, or I might be leaving the "ol' glass bowl" early to get some shuteye.
