The Big 12 Championship will serve as a play-in game for the league to get their first non-Oklahoma team in the College Football Playoff as the Kansas State Wildcats face the TCU Horned Frogs in Arlington, Texas on Saturday, December 3rd at 12:00 p.m. ET. The game is scheduled to air on ABC.
While K-State (9-3, 7-2 Big 12) has the losses, they by the numbers are one of the best teams in the country in terms of most power rankings. Will Howard has done a nice job in relief of Adrian Martinez at quarterback, and the defense forces nearly two turnovers per game.
TCU (12-0, 9-0 Big 12) are the darlings of 2022, and are just 60 minutes from a destination most would have thought impossible before the season began. Max Duggan has been a revelation at quarterback while getting himself in the mix for the Heisman Trophy, and “HypnoToad” has taken over as the official mascot of the smart college football fans across America.
