Two Big 12 rivals meet this weekend as Texas visits Kansas in Saturday’s Week 12 college football action.
Texas is trying to keep its low and dwindling hopes alive at the Big 12 Championship Game after suffering a costly loss at home to TCU last week.
Kansas are collecting the pieces after a smashing 5-0 start to the season but have since lost four of their last five overall, including to three unranked teams, allowing for at least 37 points in each matchup.
What do the experts think of this? Let’s see how the College Football Power Index computer prediction model projects the game.
