Week 4: Big 12 Power Rankings

  1. Texas: The Longhorns survived a tough Wyoming team and pulled away late. They are currently ranked 3rd overall in in the nation and deserve the top spot in the conference
  2. Oklahoma: This years Red River Rivalry will be one of the most highly anticipated in recent memory as both teams will look to survive these next two weeks and go into that game undefeated. The Sooners have looked amazing so far on both sides of the ball despite the lackluster competition they’ve faced
  3. BYU: Kedon Slovis has this Cougars team riding high early in the season, with an impressive victory against Arkansas last week to bring the Cougars to 3-0.
  4. UCF: The Knights get a solid foe in Kansas State for their introduction to Big 12 play. They dominated two of their opponents and squeaked out a close one against a tough Boise State team.
  5. Kansas: With Jalon Daniels back at quarterback, the Jayhawks are off to another hot start and have a big game this afternoon against the newcomer BYU.
  6. TCU: After a disappointing performance on the defensive side to start the season, the Horned Frogs have dominated the past two weeks, including the opening conference game against Houston last week.
  7. Kansas State: A last-second field goal sunk the Wildcats last weekend against Missouri. This team is still talented enough to contend at the top of the conference and will look to sour UCF’s Big 12 introduction.
  8. Cincinnati: The Bearcats gutted out a tough win in week 2 against Pitt but lost to Miami (OH) last weekend in a game that they should’ve won.
  9. Texas Tech: The Red Raiders looked really bad in the season opener and kept making too many mental errors against a good Oregon team. They righted the ship last weekend and will look to start conference play on a high note.
  10. West Virginia: While their only loss is to one of the nations best in Penn State, I just don’t think this team is talented enough to be any higher and will need to hope they’re healthy for their matchup against Texas Tech.
  11. Oklahoma State: Southern Alabama embarrassed this team last weekend and deservedly so the Cowboys will be behind a team with a worse record than them.
  12. Baylor: The Bears get the nod over the last two teams because of their close loss to Utah. They have an opportunity to shock the Longhorns at home this evening.
  13. Iowa State: Despite all the bad about this team, their loss to Iowa was close. The Ohio game was ugly and the only reason they aren’t lower is because Houston has a conference loss.
  14. Houston: Losing to a team they should beat in Rice and not being close against TCU is why this team is dead last. They have an easy game against Sam Houston State to try and get back to .500
