No. 9 Oklahoma is headed back to the Big 12 championship game to face No. 13 Nebraska after winning a tiebreaker based on the Bowl Championship Series standings.

The Sooners were ninth in the standings released Sunday, with Oklahoma State 14th and Texas A&M 18th.

The three teams finished the regular season tied atop the Big 12 South with 6-2 records in conference play, and the BCS standings were used to break the tie.

It's the second time in three years that Oklahoma has made it to the Big 12 title game after finishing in a three-way tie for the South title.

The Sooners also edged Texas and Texas Tech in a BCS tiebreaker before winning the conference title and then losing to Florida in the national championship game.
