The Kansas State Wildcats remain atop the Big 12 standings despite suffering their first loss of the season on Saturday, a 52-24 drubbing at the hands of the Baylor Bears. Baylor improved to 2-5 in conference play with the win.
The Wildcats hold a half-game lead over the Oklahoma Sooners, who improved to 6-1 after squeaking by the West Virginia Mountaineers, 50-49. The Texas Longhorns have company in third place, being joined by the Oklahoma State Cowboys after their 59-21 rout of the Texas Tech Red Raiders. With the loss, the Red Raiders dropped to .500 in conference play.
The Longhorns have a shot to finish in a tie for first place if they win out, which would include a win over Kansas State. Oklahoma would have to lose one of its remaining games against Oklahoma State and the TCU Horned Frogs in order for that scenario to play out, as well.
Here are the full standings:
