The Big 12 had a limited schedule in the latest weekend of college football, which mostly kept the latest Big 12 power rankings status quo.
The Big 12 only had two games transpire in the latest weekend of action. That meant four teams, with the other six on a bye. It’s unusual for any conference, but since the Big 12 has just 10 teams—the least of anyone in the Power Five—for one week there was a schedule oddity.
Oklahoma battled TCU and Texas Tech and Kansas battled in the lone conference games, both of which were blowouts that led to a Sooner and Red Raider win, respectively.
It did nothing for the latest Big 12 power rankings, as they mostly sit the same entering the final days of October.
The Jayhawks have the Big 12’s last spot all to themselves. They were blown out by Texas Tech, 48-16, and still have Oklahoma and Texas on the way. Their other conference matchups are not winnable, so it’s possible they finish at 2-10.
