The Big 12 Conference has reconsidered its tie-breaker ruling from Friday night, meaning that the Kansas University soccer team will play a play-in match at 6 p.m. Monday against Texas Tech to determine the No. 8 seed in the Big 12 Soccer Championship.

On Saturday afternoon, the conference released the following statement:

“In regards to the seeds for the 2009 Big 12 Soccer Championship, the language to break the three-way tie between Baylor, Kansas and Texas Tech is open to interpretation and can be applied in different ways. The coaches and administrators will consider a clearer interpretation of the rule in the offseason.

“The resolution is to conduct a play-in game between Kansas and Texas Tech Monday, Nov. 2 at 6:00 p.m. CT at Blossom Soccer Stadium in San Antonio, Texas.

“The winner of the play-in game will advance to Wednesday’s quarterfinal as the No. 8 seed and play No. 1 seed Missouri.”

This marks the first time the conference has utilized a play-in game to decide qualifiers for its postseason tournament.

i wonder if UT in football last year had a chance at the "play in" game for the South title?

sounds like a new application of the rules....since there is never been this type of match before.

that makes it tough no matter what. MU just lost to KU...and i'm sure they'll have revenge on their minds if we slip by the Red Raiders. plus, they'll be well rested.

Go Jayhawks!
