FBC-T25-LSU-TEXAS A&M PREVIEW
COLLEGE STATION, Texas — When Texas A&M entered the Southeastern Conference in 2012 and its almost 100-year series against Texas ended, it looked as if the Aggies’ matchup with LSU might become a big rivalry. Not so much so far. LSU has dominated since then, winning all six meetings with Texas A&M. By Kristie Rieken. 800 words.
FBC-OKLAHOMA STATE-TCU PREVIEW
FORT WORTH, Texas — Oklahoma State is still scoring plenty of points with fifth-year senior quarterback Taylor Cornelius, who waited his turn to be the Cowboys starter in his final college season. Injury-plagued TCU, which has gotten three of its wins when scoring fewer than 20 points, likely will have fifth-year senior quarterback Grayson Muehlstein making his first career start in his final regular season game Saturday night, when the Horned Frogs (5-6, 3-5) have to win to get bowl eligible.

FBC-BAYLOR-TEXAS TECH PREVIEW
ARLINGTON, Texas — Texas Tech and Baylor have reached the regular-season finale in the same position, needing a win to get bowl eligible. Still, the modes of the two teams couldn’t be much more different going into Saturday’s game in the NFL stadium where the Big 12 championship game will be played a week later. For Baylor coach Matt Rhule and the Bears (5-6, 3-5 Big 12), getting to a bowl game a year after winning only once would be quite a boost. By Stephen Hawkins. 800 words. Photos.
BKC-T25-LAS VEGAS INTERNATIONAL
LAS VEGAS — Kerwin Roach II blended aggression and good decision making, just how coach Shaka Smart drew it up. Roach scored a career-best 32 points and helped Texas hold off a late charge to beat No. 7 North Carolina 92-89 on Thursday and advance to the final of the Las Vegas Invitational.
