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.
- Oklahoma – 18 points
They cruised to an easy victory and scored a total of ten touchdowns.
- Kansas State – 16 points
Colin Klein threw for one touchdowns and ran for three touchdowns as KSU silenced some doubters against Miami (FL).
- West Virginia – 13 points (1 3rd-place vote)
They did not play in Week 2 and will play James Madison in Week 3.
- Iowa State – 10 points (1 3rd-place vote)
The defense shined as the Cyclones won at Iowa for the first time in 10 years.
- Texas – 10 points (1 4th-place vote)
This is the Texas we are use to seeing.
- 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.
- Oklahoma State – 7 points
After scoring 84 points, the Cowboys gave up 59 points in the loss to Arizona.
- Baylor – 4 points
They got the week off in Week 2 and will play Sam Houston State in Week 3.
