Kansas and Kansas State have the inside track, but Oklahoma State is lurking just one game behind
And then there were three.
With apologies to Iowa State and Oklahoma, perhaps still clinging to hopes of a miracle, the race for the Big 12 Conference title has come down to a trio of contenders: Kansas, Kansas State and Oklahoma State.
The Jayhawks and Wildcats, currently atop the league at 12-3, have three games left. The Cowboys (10-4) have four to play.
It doesn’t get much closer than that.
Some argue the conference is down this year. But it would be a much harder case to make that the excitement level is, too.
