    The Washington teams have really had a rough year. Both USC and Stanford combined to outscore them 114-0 this past week.

    Texas Tech has a big game with Okie State this week. If Okie State wins and Oklahoma and Texas stay at one loss, then there would be a four-way tie in the Big 12 South. Realistically, the most that can tie is three because Oklahoma still has to play both Texas Tech and Okie State at the end of the regular season. Things are only beginning to get interesting in the South Division!

    Thanks for posting as always!
