College football: When is the Big 12 Championship Game?

AP Poll: Alabama still king

Despite having to replace Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Baker Mayfield, reigning Big 12 champion Oklahoma could be poised to make another run at a conference championship and the College Football Playoff, at least according to the AP Top 25 poll.

The Sooners (4-0) are ranked No. 6, followed by West Virginia at No. 12, Texas at No. 18 and Texas Tech at No. 25.

Oklahoma ran away with the Big 12 Championship last season as Mayfield threw four touchdown passes in a 41-17 win over TCU. The win ultimately earned the Sooners the No. 2 seed in the College Football Playoff.

The 2018 Big 12 Championship Game is on December 1, 2018, at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
