Vegas Odds On NCAA Big 12 Football 2014
It is no wonder the Big 12 Conference has its headquarters in Las Colinas, a suburb of Dallas, Texas, as 4 of the current 10 teams are located there. Texas universities Baylor, the University of Texas and Texas Tech University are charter members that joined when the conference came into existence in 1994, though Big 12 athletic competition did not begin until 1996. Texas Christian University joined in 2012, with Iowa State, the University of Kansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State, and West Virginia rounding out the current Big 12 Conference NCAA football participants. The conference was originally divided into North and South divisions, but that was absolved with the departure of Nebraska and Colorado in 2011. Also, they used to play a Big 12 Conference Championship game before the NCAA ruled that only conferences with 12 teams could do so.
About Big 12 College Football
College football is all about rivalries. Players move in and out every 2 to 4 years so the fans fall in love with the team, the team name, the mascot and the Stadium instead of individual athletes. And every year the Vegas Odds On Big 12 powerhouses like Texas, Texas Tech, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and West Virginia always show them as top Big 12 conference teams. They are generally ranked somewhere in the top 25 of all NCAA Division I football programs in the preseason, throughout the NCAA regular season, and after postseason play has finished. And many of those top Big 12 teams play in some of the oldest and most heated college football rivalries in the nation.
The Nebraska - Oklahoma contest annually was one of the most well-known and hotly contested rivalries in the history of college football, before the departure of Nebraska in 2011. Now the age-old Oklahoma - Oklahoma State game is the one that Sooners athletes mark down on their calendar. Appropriately named the Bedlam Series, these teams have been playing for the Bedlam Ball for 103 years. Vegas Odds on the Kansas - Kansas State Sunflower Showdown every year offer some great value for the smart NCAA bettor, and the Governor's Cup trophy has been awarded to the winning team in that matchup for 108 years.
The oldest rivalry in the Big 12 Conference is the Baylor - TCU contest, played 107 times since 1899. Most of these rivalries predate the formation of the Big 12, but that doesn't mean that these hated rivals have buried the hatchet and have man crushes on each other. Every year the Baylor - TCU game, Kansas – Kansas State contest and the Oklahoma - Texas Red River Rivalry are some of the heaviest wagered NCAA football games all year long, reflecting the decades-old tension between the two teams involved.
And as far as the 2012 season goes, many early preseason NCAA Football polls have the Oklahoma Sooners ranked as one of the Top 5 teams in the nation. And the Oklahoma State Cowboys, West Virginia Mountaineers, Texas Longhorns and the TCU Horned Frogs rank in the top 15 or 20 Division I teams as well. With no Big 12 Championship game to focus on, and several teams poised to make a run for the BCS Championship Game in 2014, Vegas Odds On Big 12 competition are already beginning to heat up.
