Kansas State (8-0, 5-0) continues its dominance of the Big 12, sitting on top of the conference standings in the same week the Wildcats jumped to No. 2 in the latest BCS rankings.
The No. 23 Texas Longhorns (6-2, 3-2), despite a couple of narrow wins over Baylor and Kansas, continue to hold the fourth spot in the conference behind Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. The Longhorns have allowed the most points against in conference play than any other team in the Big 12, sporting a defense that is suddenly one of the worst in the NCAA.
No. 18 Texas Tech (6-2, 3-2) dropped its second game of the season against the Wildcats, losing 55-24 on Saturday to Kansas State. Tech had previously lost to Oklahoma, but wins over TCU and West Virginia significantly boosted the Red Raiders in the standings and they trail the Longhorns solely because of tiebreakers.
The TCU Horned Frogs (5-3, 2-3), playing in their first season in the Big 12, have slid further down the conference standings after two straight losses. The Horned Frogs fell in Stillwater on Saturday to Oklahoma State, 36-14, and will a tough test this weekend against fellow Big 12 newcomer Oklahoma State.
The Baylor Bears, meanwhile (3-4, 0-4) have fallen to the bottom of the conference standings following four straight losses.
