The regular-season slate in the Big 12 Conference came to an end on Saturday, and losses by the league's top two teams, the Kansas Jayhawks and Kansas State Wildcats, resulted in the Sunflower State rivals settling for a co-championship.
Kansas State squandered an opportunity to move into sole possession of first place early on Saturday by losing to No. 13 Oklahoma State. Luckily for the Wildcats, the best possible outcome -- finishing in a tie for first place in the conference -- came to fruition when Kansas was routed by Baylor later in the day.
For Kansas State, the co-title marks its first conference championship since 1977. Meanwhile, Kansas received the consolation prize of the No. 1 seed in the Big 12 Tournament by virtue of beating the Wildcats twice during the regular season.
Here are the complete end-of-season Big 12 standings:
