Big 12 football

The Big 12 Conference’s incredible season continued on Saturday, and on Sunday, half the league showed up in the AP Poll Top 25.

The Texas Longhorns jumped back in after their biggest win ever over Oklahoma with a 49-0 victory. Meantime, the Oklahoma State Cowboys are No. 8 this week following a 41-31 win over Texas Tech. Elsewhere, TCU and Kansas played a thrilling 38-31 game won by the Horned Frogs and both teams remained ranked in the Top 20. And Kansas State, after a tough road win against Iowa State, also remained in the Top 20 this week.

Also, the Baylor Bears, who were idle, received 91 votes this week.


Here’s a look at the full Top 25 of the AP Poll for Week 7.

  1. Georgia
  2. Ohio State
  3. Alabama
  4. Clemson
  5. Michigan
  6. Tennessee

The Big 12 Conference is, by far, the deepest conference in America, so expect some of these teams to fall out of the Top 25, with others returning in, when all is said and done. The Big 12 is back in action with four games this week, including a Thursday night match up between Baylor and West Virginia.
