Note: While the team playing in the championship game is popularly regarded as the divisional champion, the Big 12 does officially recognize co-champions in football, just like it does in other sports. As a result, the following teams are also recognized as champions by the Big 12:
North Co-Champions: Kansas State (1999), Nebraska (2000, 2001, 2008), Iowa State (2004), Kansas (2007), Missouri (2010)
South Co-Champions: Texas (2002, 2008), Texas Tech (2008), Oklahoma (2008), Oklahoma State (2010), Texas A&M (2010)

2011 – present

When Nebraska and Colorado left the conference after the 2010 season, it left the conference with only 10 members. The conference did not replace the two teams and therefore eliminated the Big 12 Championship game. Under the new format, every team plays each other and the team with the best conference record wins the Big 12 title. In the event of a tie between two teams or more teams for the best conference record, then they are determined co-champions. However, the team with the highest BCS ranking at the end of the season earns the BCS berth in the Fiesta Bowl.
