STILLWATER, OKLA. (AP) - An upside-down season in the Big 12 South has produced one of the most unexpectedly important games in the conference’s 15-year history.

When No. 22 Baylor visits No. 19 Oklahoma State on Saturday, the two teams picked to finish at the bottom of the standings will play for first place in the division. It’s the first time the two have ever played with both teams in the Top 25, and it’s a complete reversal of a game that’s decided last place in the division four times before.

Oklahoma State (7-1, 3-1 Big 12) would do no worse than a share of first place with No. 11 Oklahoma (7-1, 3-1) if it can beat Baylor for a 14th time in 15 meetings as conference rivals.

The surprising Bears (7-2, 4-2) already hold sole possession of first place after their first three-game winning streak ever in Big 12 play.
