(Dallas-AP) -- Barring unforeseen losses, undefeated Oklahoma has taken all the suspense out of the Big 12 South race.

That's not the case in the conference's North division.

Nebraska and Kansas State are tied for the lead with three wins and two losses each but Missouri could play spoiler and take the crown.

The Tigers are 2-and-2 in conference play, with one of those victories coming against the Cornhuskers. Missouri plays Texas A&M before meeting Kansas State and Iowa State. Beating K-State would eliminate the Wildcats.

If Missouri were to lose one or two games, a three-loss team could win the division. That means 2-and-3 Kansas isn't out of the running.

In the South OU would have to lose two of their last three games to give up first place in the division.
