Out with the old, in with the... well nothing, really.
Colorado has moved on to the new Pac-12, and Nebraska has left for the Big Ten. The North/South divisions have been done away with, leaving 10 teams to vie for the Big 12 crown.
How will teams respond to the new format? Can Texas return to national dominance? Will Oklahoma live up to the lofty expectations? Let me educate ya, folks.
