This is coming from the conference office in the event there's a tie for first place in the conference at the end of the season.
This is NOT the official tiebreaker, but it's the likely outcome in the event of ties.
1. K-State and OU tie at 8-1. K-State has tiebreaker by virtue of win over OU.
2. K-State, OU and Texas tie at 7-2. All three would be 1-1 vs each other. Would have to work way down standings starting with the next highest placed team to compare records. Final outcome to determine champion would depend on final standings.
3. K-State, OSU and Texas tie at 7-2. UT and KSU would be 1-1 in mini-conference, while OSU would be 0-2. OSU would be eliminated and UT would be champ by virtue of head-to-head win over K-State.
4. K-State, OU, OSU and Texas tie at 7-2. OU and OSU would be 1-2 in the mini-conference of tied teams and dropped from consideration, while K-State and Texas would be 2-1. In this scenario Texas would be champions by virtue of head-to-head victory over KSU.
In almost any scenario, under #2 UT would be the winner too. That is because in order to get there OSU would have to beat OU and they will have a better conference record than Baylor and WVU (KSU and UT secondary losses) - dropping out OU, then UT-KSU, UT goes via head to head.
KSU wins out, it is champ.
UT and OU win out, OU is champ.
UT wins out and OSU beats OU, UT is champ.
I suppose if OU beats OSU but loses to TCU, things could get really weird.

Any scenario with Texas winning out and ou losing a game equals Texas being the Big 12 champ.
OSU is assured of 4th place, as they own the tie-breaker over Tech. TCU is out of the discussion because they would have 5 losses if Texas wins on Thursday.
So even if OSU drops their final 2 games, they are still in 4th place.
