Some things to watch in the Big 12 for Week 13 of the regular season:

GAME OF THE WEEK

Texas (6-4, 4-3 Big 12) at No. 13 Baylor (9-1, 6-1, No 14 CFP). Coming off their first loss after blowing an early 25-point lead at home against Oklahoma, the Bears have another chance at home to clinch a spot in the Big 12 championship game. Bears coach Matt Rhule said he hasn’t talked a lot to his players “about what they can clinch and all that. … I’m sure they know that.” Baylor last played Texas and Oklahoma in consecutive games in 2002, two lopsided losses long before the Bears were Big 12 contenders. Texas has to win its last two games, and get some help, to get back into the Big 12 title game for the second year in a row. The Longhorns are coming off a 23-21 loss to Iowa State, which kicked a field goal on the game’s final play. The last two wins by Texas have come on game-ending field goals by Cameron Dicker.
