Week 8 Big 12 Power Poll

It seems like everybody puts out their own “Power Rankings” these days. I figure I might as well.

I have to be honest with you Fanatics though. It was TOUGH this week. This is what I came up with. Feel free to post your own. Let’s compare.

1 – Texas – The Horns made Mizzou look really bad last night. I wasn’t sold on this team before yesterday. I think that they’re a legitimate national title contender now.

2 – Oklahoma State – The Cowboys have stayed surprisingly consistent without their top offensive threat, Dez Bryant. Their win over Baylor was expected and a showdown with Texas looms next weekend.

3 – Oklahoma – The Sooners made a statement by blowing out Kansas on Saturday afternoon. That’s that the South is still a lot better than the North.

4 – Kansas State – This team just keeps winning. Their conference schedule hasn’t been crazy-tough so far but again, they keep winning. Bill Snyder has impressed me up to now. The Wildcats, like Iowa State are one win away from a bowl game.

5 – Texas Tech – The Raiders surprised everyone when Texas A&M came into Lubbock to knock them off after that giant win over Nebraska last week. I’m going to be very honest with you right now. This conference is a jumbled mess starting now.

6 – Texas A&M – The Aggies win in Lubbock was impressive, especially when considering how terrible they were the week before in Manhattan.

7 – Iowa State – The Cyclones have won two conference games in a row after shocking Nebraska on Saturday.

8 – Kansas – The Jayhawks threw away a giant opportunity for the North on Saturday. This team is struggling.

9 – Nebraska – It’s amazing how much this team has fallen in the span of about 10 days.

10 – Colorado –Their recent win over Kansas puts them at number 10. That’s it. This team hasn’t shown anything else all season long.

11 – Missouri – The Tigers are probably better than Colorado but they haven’t proven it yet.

12 – Baylor – The Bears are back to being the Big 12’s whipping boy.
