(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By JOHN RABY AP Sports Writer The Big 12's attention is on Kansas State's national championship dreams, yet there's plenty left to be decided in the conference over the final weeks. Six teams are bowl eligible, with Iowa State, West Virginia and Baylor still battling for chances to fill out the league's bowl slots. Kansas State (10-0, 7-0 Big 12) can clinch at least a share of its first conference championship since 2003 with a win Saturday night at Baylor. The Wildcats moved into the top spot in the Bowl Championship Series rankings after Alabama lost to Texas A&M. No. 13 Oklahoma and No. 18 Texas remain alive for a possible BCS bowl. If Kansas State gets the league's automatic berth, the Sooners and Longhorns would be eliminated from consideration for at-large berths with another loss.
