After Oklahoma State stumbles in Morgantown, Oklahoma emerges as the undisputed favorite in the Big 12 after crushing Notre Dame.

The Sooners rolled in South Bend after starting off the game with 14 quick points, but it didn’t come as a huge surprise with the Irish having offensive struggles all season long. Oklahoma’s defense has become one of the best, if not the best, in the conference.

Now we’ll find out how legit Baylor is. They’ll be hosting West Virginia, a rematch of last year’s 70-63 touchdown festival that kept me on the edge of my seat instead of heading out to the tailgating lots early in the day.

Iowa State finds themselves out of the cellar, but move just one spot up with WVU’s big win and…let’s face it, Tulsa is nothing to brag about. Kansas ends up in last despite a better record because anyone that actually watched them play against Louisiana Tech would agree.

I know I was in the minority, just like I’ll be when they host Texas Tech this Saturday.
