Overall, the Big 12 did decent, but could have finally scored their first non-conference top 25 victory. Instead, Texas couldn’t hang on to the lead over UCLA and ultimately lost 20-17 in Arlington. It was a huge upgrade from the Longhorn’s disaster against BYU, but you can call UCLA the Cardiac Bruins this year after just scraping by against Virginia and Memphis to open the season.

Iowa State defeated their in-state rivals for the second consecutive time in Iowa City. Iowa made mistakes down the stretch, costing them in the end and giving the Cyclones their first win of the season. That also gives every team in the Big 12 at least one victory after three weeks.

That’s good news for Kansas, who doesn’t look like they’ll win another game this season after getting smoked at Duke 41-3. The Jayhawks put up just 95 yards passing and Montell Cozart looked absolutely terrible completing just 11-of-27 passes and threw two picks.

Texas Tech also lost badly at home to one of the worst teams in the SEC, Arkansas. With no running game, Davis Webb has to play a lot better than he did throwing two picks to three touchdowns.

Otherwise, the Big 12 looked good. They mopped up on three different Big Ten teams, Baylor did New Baylor things in Buffalo, and Oklahoma State throttled UTSA, who looked pretty good in their first two games this season.
