1. University of Oklahoma (8-1)
The Sooners reclaimed their spot atop the Big 12 power rankings with a huge win over Oklahoma State. Baker Mayfield may have made himself the Heisman favorite with his performance on Saturday in a game where the Sooner offense put up 62 points. Their schedule doesn’t get any easier with Texas Christian University coming to town this weekend.
2. Texas Christian University (8-1)
The Horned Frogs are back on track. This past weekend, they made easy work of a University of Texas team that had been showing steady improvement. TCU is still in a position to win the Big 12, and it can make a big statement this weekend when it takes on Oklahoma.
3. Oklahoma State (7-2)
It was a shoot-out between state rivals Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. Mayfield and Mason Rudolph went back and forth in a game of two power house offenses. The Cowboys fell 62-52 in the end in what may have been the best game of the college football season so far.
4. West Virginia University (6-3)
The Mountaineers continue to fight. Will Grier and West Virginia knocked off a red-hot Iowa State team who had already taken down Oklahoma and TCU. This weekend, they will head to Manhattan to take on the Kansas State Wildcats.
5. Iowa State (6-3)
The Cyclones lost a tough one to a good West Virginia team in a game that came down to the very end. They will have another chance to knock off a top 25 team this weekend when they head up with the Oklahoma State Cowboys.
6. University of Texas (4-5)
The Longhorns got beat up by TCU this past weekend. They should be able to get right back on track this weekend when they face the University of Kansas Jayhawks.
7. Kansas State (5-4)
K-State has strung together back-to-back victories with a tough win on the road at Texas Tech. This weekend, West Virginia comes to Manhattan after knocking off a hot Iowa State team.
8. Texas Tech (4-5)
The Red Raiders took a heartbreaking loss in overtime to the K-State Wildcats this past weekend. Texas Tech has hung tough and had a chance to win almost every game they have played this year. Look for them to rebound Saturday against the Baylor Bears.
9. Baylor (1-8)
Baylor got their first win of the 2017 season with a blowout victory over a weak Jayhawk team. The Bears look to keep their winning ways alive when they go head to head with a Texas Tech team fresh off a loss in overtime.
10. University of Kansas (1-8)
Kansas was embarrassed Saturday afternoon in a 38-9 loss to a Baylor team that had yet to win a game in the 2017 season. The road doesn’t get any easier when they play the Texas Longhorns this week.
