If you're a fan of Oklahoma, Texas, Texas Tech or West Virginia, you probably will want to take a look at this announcement from the Big 12. The league has revealed the kickoff time and TV info for its championship game.

The 2018 Dr. Pepper Big 12 Football Championship will be contested on Dec. 1 at noon ET. ABC will broadcast the game.

The game will be played once against at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. It will be one of four conference championship games played that day.

This will be the second Big 12 title game since conference realignment. Last year, Oklahoma routed TCU 41-17 to take home the conference crown.

Right now, Texas sits atop the Big 12 with a 4-0 conference record. Oklahoma, Texas Tech and West Virginia are right behind at 3-1 in league play.

Oklahoma's lone loss is to Texas, while Texas Tech fell to West Virginia and the Mountaineers were beaten by Iowa State. There's a chance that the OU-WVU regular season finale on Nov. 23 will decide a spot in the conference championship game.

An Oklahoma-Texas rematch on Dec. 1 would be tremendous, but there are a number of other exciting possibilities for the Big 12.

There's a lot of football left to be played.
