2010 Big 12 Predictions

Posted By Adrian Fedkiw On Aug 24 2010 @ 8:08 am In Big 12 | No Comments

The Big 12 is an interesting conference heading into the season.  3 players from the 3 best teams within the conference are gone; Colt McCoy of Texas, Sam Bradford of Oklahoma and Ndamukong Suh of Nebraska.  With that being said, will one of these 3 hold the Big 12 crown at season’s end, or will a Texas A+M, Missouri or Texas Tech emerge.  The Big 12 South has claimed the Big 12 title every season since 2003 when Darren Sproles and Kansas State upset Oklahoma in the Big 12 Championship Game.  This is Nebraska’s final year within the conference, and a Big 12 trophy is a realistic possibility before they bolt to the new Big 12 (Big 10).  Not so much for Colorado who heads to the Pac 10.
