Which means, moving forward, the Big 12 could turn the focus back on the schools that might best strengthen the football profile of the conference -- like BYU, which has the seventh-most wins of any FBS program dating to 1980. And Houston, which is coming off a two-touchdown victory over Florida State in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl.
