The Big XII is finally shaping up to be one of the top conferences in college football. This past weekend saw one upset against a formerly ranked Big XII team and one Big XII team find their way into the top 25 for the first time this season. Two undefeated teams remain in the conference.

#22 Baylor

Baylor

Baylor continued their impressive season with a 31-12 win over Kansas State. Charlie Brewer didn’t play as well as expected but the run game performed well and the defense was stifling.

Iowa State

Iowa State

Brock Purdy continues to impress as he had one of the most efficient weeks across the country and ran for over 100 yards too. This defense really stepped up against the run and TCU just couldn’t really get going.

Kansas

Kansas

Kansas surprised a lot of people by going up 7-0 to start the game against Oklahoma. Carter Stanley looked good for the majority of the game and could keep Kansas on upset alert radars through conference play.

Kansas State

Kansas State

The Wildcats just couldn’t muster anything up against the Bears when it came to actually scoring. Kansas State has struggled after starting off the year 0-3 and are beginning to look like pretenders.

#6 Oklahoma

Oklahoma

Oklahoma got off to a slow start but absolutely dominated once they got going. The slow start may cost them in games against stronger competition but for now they’re in the clear heading into the Red River Showdown.

Oklahoma State

Oklahoma State

In what was a largely disappointing game from Spencer Sanders, Oklahoma State was upset by Texas Tech. Chuba Hubbard looked stellar as always but poor QB play hindered the Cowboys.

#11 Texas

Texas

Sam Ehlinger didn’t look great throwing the ball but freshman RB/QB Roschon Johnson looked fantastic on the ground. Expect Roschon to be featured heavily against Oklahoma.

TCU

TCU

Yikes. The Horned Frogs did not look good at all defensively as Brock Purdy had a field day offensively. TCU is going to have to clean up and find a way to survive for the remainder of the season.

Texas Tech

Texas Tech

Jett Duffey. The backup QB had to start because of the injury to Alan Bowman and wow did he perform. Duffey had 440 total yards and 5 touchdowns in route to an upset victory over Oklahoma State.

West Virginia

West Virginia

Austin Kendall had what should go down as his most turnover-happy game this season and the team only lost by 11. If we’re looking for positivity, it’s that despite Austin Kendall’s best efforts, the Mountaineers weren’t blown out.
