Last night KU basketball and Oklahoma football played games at almost exactly the same time.  Of course both won, which surprised nobody who follows this league.  The Big 12 has become downright boring. Oklahoma has won the football championship 11 times since the year 2000, including the last three titles, and will win their fourth straight after beating Texas in the Big 12 championship next weekend.
