Updated Big 12 football standings: Week 8


A look back at Week 8 in the Big 12 football season as Kansas State now sits at the top. They are the only team undefeated in conference play and their lone loss was to Auburn that was filled with mistakes. Ironically, their win over Oklahoma was due to mistakes from the opposing team.

Clint Trickett is back to be amazing. He diced up the Baylor defense just like Trevone Boykin did completing 23-of-35 passes for 322 yards, 3 touchdowns, and just one pick. Injuries were an excuse for Baylor before, but that was on the offensive end. The Bears defense was beyond horrible in these last two games, and both Trickett and Boykin look more like Heisman candidates than Bryce Petty. There’s still time to right the ship for Baylor, but College Football Playoff talk has likely fizzled out this year.

Kansas State 31, Oklahoma 30

The Wildcats held on after capitalizing on Sooners miscues early in the game. Trevor Knight damn near mimicked Trickett’s day going 26-for-32 for 318 yards, 3 touchdowns, and a pick. Both teams played incredibly well and the top 15 matchup lived up to the billing representing two of the top teams in the Big 12. Oklahoma’s defense is really good, but two turnovers ultimately cost them the game.

This game went exactly like we all expected. Kansas looks alive after firing Charlie Weis. Clearly the man under center will be Michael Cummings going forward (threw two TDs, ran for another), but the Jayhawk running attack is still struggling. For as much flak as I give the Red Raiders, they may be coming around on offense. Obviously, any team will look like they’re coming around on offense against Kansas, but a running game may be forming with Texas Tech. DeAndre Washington has recorded back-to-back 130-plus performances and racked up 164 against the Jayhawks. Now he just needs to find the endzone.

TCU 42, Oklahoma State 9

Can’t be surprised with this result. Oklahoma State felt overrated and were exposed on the road against a TCU defense that was lit up by Baylor a week ago. The Cowboys went 3-for-15 on third down, accumulated just 258 total yards, and the explosive duo of Desmond Roland and Tyreek Hill were held to 126 yards and zero scores. Iowa State has to be kicking themselves that they let the game get away from them on a bad call from the refs.
