This weekend will be a pivotal weekend in the Big XII as there are two match-ups between ranked teams and one match up of two teams poised to make the playoffs. These two games could have a big bearing on the conference race as well as the playoff race.Twitter and Facebook
As I have previously discussed, there are a lot of candidates I am talking about for the vacant SMU coaching position.
