Big 12 power rankings: Same old, same old

New, comment

With so little games, and expected results, the rankings don’t see any movement.

Not much to really talk about this week. Six teams were on bye this week and were able to recoup and rest. The other four teams played about as well as we’ve seen them play all year.

Texas Tech took care of business against Kansas and though Kansas proved to be better than years’ prior they are still undoubtedly the worst team in the league. Tech has been known to play down to their opponent in previous years but showed a determination to keep a bad team down. With a healthy Alan Bowman, Tech is getting to the meat of their schedule now with a trip to Ames to play Iowa State followed by back to back home games against top 10 teams in Oklahoma and Texas. We’ll see if the Red Raiders are contenders or pretenders very soon.

Oklahoma and TCU played an exciting contest which saw Oklahoma get out to an early big lead, TCU lose Shawn Robinson for the year and then storm back behind backup Michael Collins and only be down four at halftime. Just for Oklahoma’s defense to stifle them in the second half and Kyler Murray to step up. Oklahoma’s second half defense is the potential of this team with Ruffin McNeil at the helm, but we also can’t forget it was arguably the league’s worst offense playing their backup quarterback.
