Mizzou clinches Big 12 North to face Big 12 South leader Oklahoma December 1 in the 2007 Dr Pepper Big 12 Championship. After selling out the 1997 and 1999 games, the 2007 Dr Pepper Big 12 Championship returns to San Antonio on Saturday at 7 p.m. to fill the 65,000-seat Alamodome. A BCS national championship berth is on the line when the Missouri Tigers take on the Oklahoma Sooners in front of a national television audience on ABC in prime time.
