Oklahoma's Jeff Capel is one of a trio of Big 12 coaches among the 10 selected as finalists. The others are Missouri's Mike Anderson and Kansas' Bill Self. None of the 10 finalists has ever won the award.

Each week I pose a Question of the Week for you the reader to chew on (masticate if you prefer) and digest..
This Week's Question: Which BracketBusters team will actually bust brackets in March?
Utah State, who had its 19-game winning streak snapped as well as its 16-game Western Athletic Conference winning streak, is now 24-2 on the season and 12-1 in the WAC. It was also USU's first road loss of the season as it is now 10-1 on the road. Boise State improved to 17-7 overall and 7-4 in league play with the win.
