Big 12 Power Rankings 10/22

The rankings!

NCAA Football: Kansas State at Baylor Ray Carlin-USA TODAY Sports

I believe in head-to-head, but these are projections.

1) Oklahoma- They looked a lot better on defense. Hopefully that continues, and the Big 12 gets a playoff team.

2) Texas- The Longhorns aren’t back, but they’re no longer back to being a joke when someone says they’re back.

3) Texas Tech- Is this too high? Probably. But they’ve been rolling.

4) West Virginia- This team looked awful against Iowa State. They were pretty awesome before that.

5) Iowa State- The Cyclones have been rolling lately.

6) Baylor- The Bears move up without playing. This team needs to find a way to win close games down the stretch.

7) TCU- Gary Patterson’s team has been horrendously disappointing. He still has one of the league’s top programs, and everyone has down seasons. This is certainly one for him.

8) Oklahoma State- I believe in Mike Gundy, but once again, this is not a Big 12 coach’s year.

9) Kansas State- Yes, they beat Oklahoma State, but after another week to think (or overthink), I think Oklahoma State will finish the season with a better mark.

10) Kansas- The only news is that David Beaty has not been fired.
