Pinkel, Mangino share Big 12 coach of year honors

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) _ Gary Pinkel beat Mark Mangino on the field,
vaulting Missouri to number-one for the first time since 1960. At
the polls, though, he tied for first with the Kansas coach.

Pinkel and Mangino today were named co-Big 12 coaches of the
year. Each received ten votes in balloting by a panel of conference
media.

Missouri's 36-28 win over the Jayhawks on Saturday moved the
Tigers to the top of the rankings and gave them their first-ever
Big 12 North title. A win over Oklahoma on Saturday in the Big 12
championship game would almost certainly put MIssouri in the
national championship game January seventh.

Mangino was just 25-35 at Kansas entering this season but led
the Jayhawks to an 11-0 record and a number-two ranking before the
loss to Missouri.
