Early Kickoff For Big 12 Football Championship Game

IRVING (AP) – There will be an early Saturday kickoff for the Big 12 Conference football championship game in December.

Big 12 officials announced Wednesday that the Dec. 2 game will be played at 11:30 a.m. Central time at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

It is the Big 12’s first football championship game since 2010, when Oklahoma beat Nebraska 23-20 at the home stadium of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys.

The championship game will match the two teams that finish the regular season with the highest winning percentage in conference play.

Tickets for the game, which go on sale Friday, will range from $90-$175. Each participating school will receive about 7,000 tickets and there will be another 1,000 student tickets for $50 each.
