Week 10 Power Rankings: The Red Raiders take a nosedive after the collapse vs. BU

Can Tech produce success @TCU to prevent another big slide in the rankings?

NCAA Football: Baylor at Texas Tech Michael C. Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

Last week’s previous rankings:

  1. TCU
  2. Oklahoma State
  3. Kansas State
  4. Texas Tech
  5. Texas
  6. Baylor
  7. Kansas
  8. West Virginia
  9. Oklahoma
  10. Iowa State

This past week we saw the Red Raiders get dismantled against Baylor at home, TCU cementing themselves in the playoff conversation, and an unbelievable outcome in Manhattan with the Wildcats and Cowboys. The month of October flew by, where we saw the Red Raiders post a lowly 1-3 record. I’m hopeful that Tech can finish at least 2-2 down the stretch to make a bowl game, but man was that Baylor game hard to watch. Oklahoma State had one of the most bizarre performances I've seen in awhile, where they were blanked 48-0. With seeing that outcome along with some others, I think that the Big 12 has truly showed how tough it is from the top to (almost) the bottom. The last month of conference play should be a fun one, with some big games ahead to close it out... as well as seeing if TCU can sneak their way into the College Football Playoff.

Week 10 Power Rankings

  1. TCU- Firmly in the driver’s seat of the Big 12, the Frogs have a dicey schedule left that includes a few tough outings. If they win out, hello playoff!
  2. Kansas State
  3. Texas
  4. Baylor
  5. Oklahoma State- The Cowboys look to bounce back after one of the worst performances they’ve had in years. They go on the road against a KU squad that may possibly have Jalon Daniels back.
  6. Oklahoma
  7. Kansas
  8. Texas Tech- The Red Raiders let a large opportunity slip through their hands last week against Baylor. Playing #7 TCU on the road isn’t the greatest opportunity to make something happen, but still another chance nonetheless.
  9. West Virginia
  10. Iowa State
