Who's doing the talking for Texas Tech? Who's in control of the Big 12 North? What can Texas do to sneak into a BCS bowl? These questions and more are answered in our Big 12 notebook.

Even after Baylor's 42-17 loss to Texas Tech Saturday, the Bears' athletic web site had a pop-up ad promoting a $25 DVD of Baylor's 35-34 victory over Texas A&M as well as T-shirts. One of the T-shirts reads, "Gig This!"

  • The defensive intensity Baylor showed against A&M was evident for the first nine minutes against Texas Tech as the Red Raiders had minus-17 yards and trailed the Bears 7-0. But Baylor's defense began coming unraveled in the final minute of the first half before surrendering a season-high 564 yards.
