Texas and Oklahoma will meet in a rare Red River Rivalry rematch on Saturday, Dec. 1, when the two Big 12 powers meet in the conference championship game. The Sooners opened as a 6-point favorite and quickly moved to -7.5, where the line sites now across the market.

The Longhorns pulled an upset over the Sooners as a 7-point underodg earlier in the season, nearly blowing a 21-point fourth quarter lead before kicking the game-winning field goal as time expired. The 48-45 final, flew way over the total.

That game was also on a neutral field, so the point spread being close isn’t much of a surprise.

Big 12 Championship Game Betting History

The Big 12 had the second-longest running title game, but when it lost Nebraska and Colorado after the 2010 season, it abandoned divisions and the championship game.

In 2017, the conference brought it back after Baylor and TCU missed the 2014 College Football Playoff in large part because Ohio State mashed Wisconsin in the Big Ten title game.
