Oklahoma schools own the top spots in the conference after two big wins

Sooners and Cowboys rule the conference and seem to be on a direct path towards each other for the title

NCAA Football: Texas Tech at Kansas Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports
  1. Oklahoma- After taking care of TCU, the Sooners get a cake walk as they head to Lawrence to take on the Jayhawks.
  2. Oklahoma State- Beating Texas was a good sign for this team, however the offensive struggles were still there. Luckily they’re in the easier part of the schedule until they have to face the Sooners.
  3. Baylor- Getting past a ranked BYU squad is something to be proud of. Now the Bears get a bye week before they host the Longhorns.
  4. Texas- Another tough loss to the Cowboys leaves this Longhorns squad on the outside looking in for the Big 12 race. They should be aiming to try and get into a New Years Six bowl at this point.
  5. Texas Tech- Bouncing back against Kansas is what this Red Raider team needed. Now they get a tough test in the Wildcats of Kansas State.
  6. TCU- After blowing out Texas Tech, the Horned Frogs got a reality check in the form of a beating from Oklahoma. At 3-3, this squad needs to rattle off some wins if they want to become bowl eligible.
  7. Iowa State- This week is a big one for the Cyclones as they host the Cowboys. Can they make a statement and pull off the upset, or will the disappointing season continue?
  8. Kansas State- After a tough loss to Iowa State, the Wildcats get a chance to bounce back against Texas Tech.
  9. West Virginia- Coming off the bye week, the Mountaineers get a chance to climb out of the Big 12 cellar against a tough TCU squad.
  10. Kansas- After getting blown out by Texas Tech, the Jayhawks get another fun opponent in the form of Oklahoma. An upset here would be enough to salvage the season.

Key Matchups- The Cowboys heading to Iowa State to play the Cyclones will be a nice one. Can this Cowboys offense wake up? I don’t know if the Cyclones are the team you want to play if your offense is struggling as their defense is tough as usual.
