Big 12 Championship Storylines/Recap Storylines 1. Will Daniel Thomas be able to play? Coach VICTORIES: "We sure hope so. We held him out of practice this week and he is still a game time decision. We sure hope he can go." 2. This is a tale of 2 totally different styles. Texas Tech comes in bolstering the #1 rated pass offense while Kansas St. has the #5 rush offense. The Kansas St defense has given up some passing yards this season forced teams to turn the ball over and the offense has done a great job of not turning the ball over. They come into the game with the 6th best turnover differential in the nation. The Wildcat Defensive Coordinator is hoping his DBs can make some plays with Tech slinging it around so much. Kansas St has the 2nd best 3rd down conversion percentage in the nation converting 50%.
