Saturday’s SEC championship winner is guaranteed a spot in the Sugar Bowl, and that would be a big deal for Missouri, which has not played in the Bowl Championship Series. But there could be more at stake.
Kansas distance running legend and Olympic gold medalist Billy Mills will receive the Theodore Roosevelt Award, which the NCAA considers its highest honor.
For the third straight year, the Big 12 has arranged games that directly impact the league championship on the final weekend. All four teams playing Saturday have a chance at a piece of the title. Oklahoma State plays host to Oklahoma at 11 a.m., and the Longhorns visit Baylor at 2:30 p.m. in the final game at Floyd Casey Stadium in Waco.
The Kansas volleyball team had four players selected all-Big 12, including setter of the year Erin McNorton, and Ray Bechard won coach of the year for the second straight time.
