DALLAS (AP) _ There will be a three-way tie for the South Division lead if Oklahoma State beats Oklahoma and Texas loses to Texas A&M this weekend.

So if that happens, who will go to the Big 12 championship game?

The first tiebreaker is head-to-head, and the three teams would be 1-and-1 against each other. The second tiebreaker would revolve around division records, and all would be 3-and-2.

Next, it would be the teams' head-to-head record against the next-place team in the South Division. OU, OSU and Texas would have all split their games against Texas Tech and Texas A&M, the teams that would be tied for fourth. They all beat last-place Baylor.

Now we're down to common opponents from the North, but they have none.

The final determination is the highest-ranked team in the BCS standings.

Currently, OU is 10th, Texas is 13th and OSU isn't ranked in the top 25.
