First-round games will be played on Wednesday with No. 8 TCU facing No. 9 Oklahoma and No. 7 Texas Tech taking on No. 10 Texas.
 
Extensive video coverage of the entire Championship can be found via the Big 12 Digital Network at Big12Sports.com and on the conference’s social media platforms on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.  Video available will include postgame interviews, behind-the-scenes access, features, highlights from every contest and exclusive live coverage of postgame press conferences.  In addition, live streaming of the championship trophy ceremony can be found on Saturday evening, March 11.
