After each weekend of Big 12 play we’ll look at how things turned out for the Big 12 conference.
This week was jam packed with Big 12 football action. Kansas State made a huge statement against an ACC opponent, Oklahoma and Texas came out strong after struggling in Week 1, and both Oklahoma State and Kansas lost games that many thought they would both win.
