This past week in the Big 12 conference got started with a matchup featuring two ranked opponents in the Kansas Jayhawks hosting the Baylor Bears in a game won by the home team as they maintained their unblemished record in the conference.

The following day saw an upset as the Texas Longhorns took down the Kansas State Wildcats to continue their run of impressive ball of late.

Wednesday saw two conference games with the Oklahoma Sooners taking out the downtrodden TCU Horned Frogs who are still search of their first conference win and with the West Virginia Mountaineers getting past the Texas Tech Red Raiders by six.

Thursday and Friday had zero conference games scheduled, but the slate of games Saturday featured all ten Big 12 schools on the hardwood with six of the teams ranked inside the top 25.

Saturday’s winners included Kansas, Oklahoma State, Iowa State, Texas and Oklahoma. Each of these winners with the exception of Texas were ranked last week and Texas has a very good chance of being in the latest top 25.
