Big 12 Power Rankings: Oklahoma and Kansas State Earn 1st and 2nd Place, Kansas Falls to Dead Last

Here is the Through the Phog Big 12 power rankings, a poll that accumulates our staff’s thoughts on the best through the worst in the conference. Teams in first place get 9 points, second place receive 8 points, and so on.

This poll follows the opening weekend of college football.

  1. Oklahoma – 18 points
    They cruised to an easy victory and scored a total of ten touchdowns.
  2. Kansas State – 16 points
    Colin Klein threw for one touchdowns and ran for three touchdowns as KSU silenced some doubters against Miami (FL).
  3. West Virginia – 13 points (1 3rd-place vote)
    They did not play in Week 2 and will play James Madison in Week 3.
  4. Iowa State – 10 points (1 3rd-place vote)
    The defense shined as the Cyclones won at Iowa for the first time in 10 years.
  5. Texas – 10 points (1 4th-place vote)
    This is the Texas we are use to seeing.
  6. TCU – 10 points (2 5th-place votes)
    They won their first game of the season and will open up Big 12 Conference play next week.
  7. Oklahoma State – 7 points
    After scoring 84 points, the Cowboys gave up 59 points in the loss to Arizona.
  8. Baylor – 4 points
    They got the week off in Week 2 and will play Sam Houston State in Week 3.
  9. Texas Tech – 2 points
    Texas State was no match for the Red Raiders.
  10. Kansas – 0 points
    They should have won easily, but a late thrown interception ended the night with an upset.
