There were some absolutely crazy finishes on Saturday, replete with some near upsets, questionable clock management and play calling, and a game where officiating incompetence directly impacted the final score, and the conference has admitted as much. None of that had much impact on the upper echelon of the polls, however. Baylor remains the #2 team in both polls behind Ohio State, who was also off this week.
This is the final set of polls before the Selection Committee releases their first set of rankings on Tuesday. It's important to remember that regardless of where things shake out for the Bears on Tuesday, the Selection Committee looks only at what's happened thus far and not what's to come. Additionally, these rankings are somewhat meaningless, as the only ranking that matters is the final one after the last week of the season.
But I digress. Let's get to the polls, shall we?
