1. University of Oklahoma (4-0)

Oklahoma keeps their spot at the top of the power rankings after having a bye week. This weekend, they face a stubborn Iowa State team. Oklahoma is ranked number three in the national rankings and they are in a position to head back to the College Football Playoffs like they did in 2015. Quarterback Baker Mayfield is a Heisman contender who continues to make his mark this season.

2. Texas Christian University (4-0)

TCU moved their way up to number eight in the country and are coming off a bye week eager to impress. This Saturday, they square up with a tough West Virginia University team that is ranked number 23 in the country.

3. Oklahoma State (4-1)

After suffering a tough loss to TCU at home, the Cowboys rebounded against Texas Tech on the road in Lubbock, Texas. Oklahoma State is still a threat in the Big 12 and they are capable of continuing their success this weekend.

4. West Virginia (3-1)

Coming off a bye week, the Mountaineers will face their toughest test of the season so far as they head to Fort Worth, Texas, to face the red hot TCU Horned Frogs. This game will tell us a lot about both teams.

5. Kansas State (3-1)

The Wildcats got back to their winning ways by beating Baylor this past Saturday. They will head down to Austin, Texas, on Saturday to play the Longhorns in a must-win game to keep their hopes alive in the Big 12.

6. University of Texas (2-2)

Texas has had a roller coaster of a season so far. This weekend against K-State will show if they have a chance to make any noise in the Big 12 this year.

7. Texas Tech (3-1)

Texas Tech is really ready to compete in the Big 12 this year. After starting off 3-0, the Red Raiders lost a close game against Oklahoma State last weekend, 34-41. Texas Tech will hopefully regroup for their game against KU on Saturday.

8. Iowa State (2-2)

The Cyclones have their hands full this weekend as they head to Norman, Oklahoma, to play the Oklahoma Sooners. This is a chance for them to turn some heads if they upset the number three team in the nation.

9. Baylor (0-5)

Despite being winless this season, the Bears have shown signs of life in their past two games. This week they have a bye and will attempt to improve once again and seek their first win when they come back in week seven.

10. University of Kansas (1-3)

The Jayhawks go head to head with Texas Tech this weekend in what should be an easy win for the Red Raiders.
