The college football season is getting closer and closer and it really seems that the national championship is wide open this year. We’ve covered each major conference and picked a winner; now it’s time to get more specific and break down exactly how each conference will play out.

What do we make of the Big 12 this year now that the ultimate winner, Colt McCoy, has left Texas? The conference is probably wide open. Whatever happens, just try to enjoy what may be the final year in the Big 12’s existence.

Here’s a predicted breakdown of the Big Twelve conference.

BIG 12 NORTH DIVISION

1. Nebraska
2. Missouri
3. Kansas State
4. Colorado
5. Iowa State
6. Kansas

Some bettors will worry about Ndamukong Suh leaving Nebraska but I think we have to give the rest of the team more credit. This team returns nine offensive starters and had the sixth-best running game in the nation last year.

Suh is gone but any team with the country’s top scoring defense requires more than one defensive standout to accomplish that.

Blaine Gabbert threw for over 3,500 yards and 24 scores last year.

He’s a Heisman Trophy candidate and big reason why Missouri will get plenty of support as the pick to win the North. But can the Tigers keep enough points off the board? I’m not so sure.

There’s a huge gap after these top two teams. Of the rest, I like Kansas State the best, mainly because the other “contender,” Colorado, has a such a tough schedule.

BIG 12 SOUTH DIVISION

1. Texas Tech
2. Texas
3. Oklahoma

4. Texas A&M
5. Baylor
6. Oklahoma State

You’ll find tons of different permutations if you read more than one prediction of how the South will play out. I’m feeling lucky and making the risky pick of Texas Tech to win the division.

My logic is that Texas Tech is ready to win now, with plenty of offensive and defensive starters returning, and its defense should finally improve.

Texas will still field the South’s best defense in all likelihood but needs a transition period offensively after saying goodbye to McCoy…we think.

What about Garrett Gilbert? He already has a BCS championship game under his belt, so maybe he’ll handle the pressure better than expected. Oklahoma already got used to life without Sam Bradford last year but underperformed in that situation.

Big 12 North champion: Nebraska. I like the way the Cornhuskers swim against the current in the Big 12. It’s a conference full of high-octane offenses and weak defenses but Nebraska wins with smashmouth football and strong “D.” Their opponents may not have an answer for them.

Big 12 South champion: Texas Tech. This is a tough call but I think the minor steps backward for Texas and Oklahoma will open the door for Texas Tech, even if that success only lasts for one year.

BIG 12 CHAMPIONSHIP GAME: Nebraska 30, Texas Tech 13

  1. If Tech gets past Texas, A&M at Kyle field and OU in Norman, easier said than done, then Nebraska without Suh, will get destroyed by them, I repeat DESTROYED. Sticks will be back at dissecting them thoroughly and this time they might even put up more than the 70 they put on them awhile back.
