DALLAS (AP) _ Texas A&M still has a shot at the Big 12 South title -- but the Aggies must overcome two embarrassing losses.

Before that overtime loss at struggling Baylor last weekend, Texas A&M had won six straight. The Aggies were on track for a matchup of undefeated conference teams for the outright South Division lead Saturday at home against Number Two Oklahoma.

But the Aggies still can avenge that 77-to-0 loss at Oklahoma last season and tie for the division lead. And remember, before handing Texas A-and-M its worst loss in school history, then top-ranked Oklahoma lost at Kyle Field two years ago.

Meanwhile, Texas is home Saturday against Oklahoma State.

In the North, only Nebraska has a winning record overall or in the conference. The Cornhuskers play at surging Iowa State, which has gone from a 13-game conference losing streak to two straight wins and a chance to tie for the division lead.

There are three other Big 12 games Saturday. Kansas State is at Missouri; Colorado goes to Kansas; and Texas Tech is home against Baylor.
