The Big 12 should just schedule OU-OKST, ISU-WVU, KU-KSU, and TCU or TTU at Texas and Baylor VS. TCU or TTU every year until realignment drastically changes the conference membership.

I’ve been thinking the same thing. I don’t know why the Big XII jacks up the final weekend of their conference season every year. Screwiest conference out there right now.
