I know that there have already been two full weeks of games played in college football but I got the urge to track a power ranking of Big XII teams.

1. Oklahoma

Jalen Hurts

Not just the best team in the Big XII, Oklahoma is one of the best teams in the nation. Jalen Hurts and Lincoln Riley look like a dynamic duo early on.

2. Texas

Sam Ehlinger

Coming off of a tough loss at the hands of LSU, Texas is still #2 in the Big XII. This secondary needs to get under control and this run game needs to open up if they want to upend Oklahoma.

3. Iowa State

MAtt Campbell

Iowa State got off to a rough start this season. After needing three overtime periods to beat Northern Iowa, expect Matt Campbell to have his Cyclones prepared this week.

4. Kansas State

Skylar Thompson

Between 4-7, these teams are so close that you could really move them around all you want. Kansas State has been off to a solid start and has been making quick work of their opponents early.

5. Oklahoma State

Mike Gundy

The talent on Oklahoma State is real on offense, but the defense keeps me from putting the Cowboys in the top 4.

6. TCU

Gary PAtterson

On the opposite side from Oklahoma State is TCU. TCU has a rare strong defense and not a high-powered offense in the Big XII. TCU’s defense should leave them to upset some teams and possibly move up this list.

7. Baylor

Charlie Brewer

Led by Charlie Brewer, the Bears are a pretty impressive offensive team that look promising if Brewer stays for his senior year next year.

8. Texas Tech

Alan Bowman

Trying to rebound from the Kliff Kingsbury years, the Red Raiders are near the bottom of the Big XII right now.

9. West Virginia

Neal Brown

Oh how the mighty have fallen. For the past couple of years, the Mountaineers were near the top of the Big XII, but things are looking way down for Neal Brown.

10. Kansas

Les Miles

One of the worst teams in all of college football. Kansas was hoping to begin a turnaround this season with Les Miles at the helm. However, following a disappointing upset to Coastal Carolina, this season looks bleak.
