Big 12 football: A new No. 1
The weekly Big 12 rankings, based not on what we think a team will do, but what a team has done. And no surprise, there’s a new No. 1.
1. Kansas State: Let’s see, a win in Norman, a rout of Miami. No Big 12 can match that. The ‘Cats have struggled against lesser foes, but there’s not many lesser foes in the Big 12.
2. Baylor: Victory at Louisiana-Monroe looks really good. Louisiana-Monroe played about as well at Auburn as LSU did a week later.
3. Iowa State: Victory at Iowa losing a little luster, since the Hawkeyes lost at home to Central Michigan.
4. TCU: Frogs haven’t impressed in style, but they’re 3-0 and have played only one rumdum.
5. Texas: Longhorns haven’t dome much yet, but they haven’t looked awful, which puts them ahead of some.
6. West Virginia: Mountaineers are about to be tested. Baylor, at Texas, at Texas Tech next three weeks.
7. Texas Tech: Can the Red Raiders win on the road somewhere besides San Marcos?
8. OU: The Sooners get no credit for the loss to a good K-State team. That’s the beauty of giving no credit for automatic victories. Then you don’t have to give credit for tough losses.
9. OSU: Cowboys really haven’t done anything. Two home routs over matched foes, a blowout loss on the road to Arizona.
10. Kansas: I don’t know how these rankings or the Big 12 standings will look come Oct. 1 or Nov. 1 or Dec. 1. Except at No. 10. I think we all can agree that KU will be at the bottom at every stop.
