Question: Much like many years ago, when I finally nailed down a favorite Beatles song because I got tired of not being able to settle on one every time someone asked me, I recently made sure to pinpoint the worst movie I'd ever seen. It wasn't hard. Thanks to some down time last July at the Westin in Dallas for Big 12 media days, I now can say with certainty that "Psychosis," starring Charisma Carpenter and directed by Reg Traviss, is the answer to this question. And it's not close.

Question: Tie: "2001 A Space Odyssey" (unbelievably boring) and Adam Sandler's "Grown Ups" (just awful).

Texas 49, Baylor 35

Texas Tech 45, TCU 28
