After a wild week of Big 12 football, with several underdogs winning on Saturday, there were some major shake-ups across the AP Poll this week.
Four Big 12 teams are ranked this week, with the Oklahoma Sooners dropping from No. 6 to No. 10, Texas staying put at No. 7, Kansas checking in at No. 23, and Kansas State earning the No. 25 spot.
Things started early on Saturday morning with multiple big games to follow. West Virginia handled the UCF Knights 41-28 in the first game of the day, while Kansas State blew out the Houston Cougars 41-0. Despite a lightning delay extending the game, Kansas upset the sixth-ranked Sooners 38-33. Then on Saturday afternoon, Iowa State took care of Baylor 30-18, continuing the narrative of Iowa State contending for a Big 12 title. Maalik Murphy and the Texas Longhorns didn’t miss a beat on Saturday thumping the BYU Cougars 35-6. Oklahoma State finished the weekend off with a commanding win over the Cincinnati Bearcats 45-13 as Ollie Gordon continues to run wild.
Oklahoma State just missed the cut as they received 77 votes in this week’s poll.
