Potential new rivalries in Big 12 with BYU becoming league’s 3rd private Christian school

AP Sports Writer

There could be some new rivalries between Christian schools brewing in the evolving Big 12 Conference. There are now three private Christian schools from different denominations in the league with BYU coming in this season. The Cougars, who were the 1984 national champions, played the past 12 seasons as an independent. They are now in the same league with Baylor and TCU, who have an 118-game rivalry that dates back to a scoreless tie in 1899. BYU will play at TCU on Oct. 14. The Cougars aren’t scheduled to play Baylor, but they split a home-and-home series the past two seasons.
