35. Minnesota at TCU, Sept. 13: Jim Wacker left TCU to coach Minnesota in 1992. Now, the Frogs have the better program.
38. TCU at West Virginia, Nov. 1: Road team has won each of the two meetings since these schools joined the conference.
37. Texas Tech at Iowa State, Nov. 22: Chances are not great that this game will mean a whole lot, other than the Red Raiders’ bowl assignment.

42. OU at Iowa State, Nov. 1: Or here?
43. Kansas State at West Virginia, Nov. 20: Since coming into the Big 12, the Mountaineers have either beaten or played tough every league team at least once — except KSU. The Wildcats have won 55-14 and 35-12.
44. North Dakota State at Iowa State, Aug. 30: This is a high ranking for a game involving a I-AA team, but the Bison went 15-0 en route to the FCS national championship in 2014, including a victory at Kansas State.
45. West Virginia at Texas Tech, Oct. 11: The first time the Mountaineers went to Lubbock, they seemed unstoppable, Geno Smith seemed a shoe-in for the Heisman Trophy and Dana Holgorsen seemed to be the catch of the century.
46. Kansas State at Iowa State, Sept. 6: We need more September conference games. This game might be quite irrelevant if played in November. But not on the first Saturday of September.

51. Texas at Kansas, Sept. 27: KU hasn’t beaten the Longhorns since 1938.
52. Iowa State at OSU, Oct. 4: Cowboys have six home games; they should be favored in at least five.
53. Kansas at West Virginia, Oct. 4: This likely is one of only four games in which the Mountaineers will be favored.
54. West Virginia at Texas, Nov. 8: Mountaineers and ’Horns have split two classics since WVU joined the league.
55. Central Michigan at Kansas, Sept. 20: KU could do the Big 12’s prestige a solid by not losing to a Mid-American foe.
56. Iowa State at TCU, Dec. 6: What a dreadful December game. Play this one earlier in the season.
57. Kansas at Texas Tech, Oct. 18: Is this a matchup of the nation’s most-attractive and least-attractive head coaches?
58. Iowa State at Texas, Oct. 18: Cyclones’ stunning 2010 upset in Austin sounded the alarm that the Longhorn program had sprung a leak.
59. Kansas at Kansas State, Nov. 29: As good a pick as any as the nation’s worst major-conference, in-state football rivalry.
60. Baylor at Buffalo, Sept. 12: It could be worse. Baylor could be playing in Buffalo in November.
61. OU at Tulsa, Sept. 6: It’s OK with me if the Sooners and Cowboys both play TU every year.
62. North Texas at Texas, Aug. 30: Mean Green played UT tough in five meetings in the ’70s and ’80s, but the average score in four games since 1990? 45-6.
63. Texas-San Antonio at OSU, Sept. 13: UTSA coach Larry Coker returns to his old stomping grounds.
64. Toledo at Iowa State, Oct. 11: A few too many Big 12/Mid-American matchups, if you ask me.
65. Texas-El Paso at Kansas State, Sept. 27: A few too many Big 12/Texas-hyphen matchups, if you ask me.
66. Louisiana Tech at OU, Aug. 30: Just two years ago, La Tech beat Houston, Illinois and Virginia, and played Texas A&M within two points.
67. Kansas at Baylor, Nov. 1: Not so long ago, this was a matchup to determine the Big 12’s worst team. Not anymore.
68. Towson at West Virginia, Sept. 6: Towson made the I-AA championship game last season.

72. Missouri State at OSU, Sept. 6: John Goodman’s old school was 5-7 last season in I-AA.
73. Stephen F. Austin at Kansas State, Aug. 30: K-State lost to a lower-division team last season, but don’t confuse Stephen F. with North Dakota State.
74. Northwestern (La.) State at Baylor, Sept. 6: This one has 73-7 written all over it.
75. Southeast Missouri State at Kansas, Sept. 6: The only drama in a matchup with a I-AA is the small chance of an upset, but Southeast Missouri State went 3-9 last season.
