Conference Standings

Movin on Up - Baylor, Texas

Baylor is closing in on a Top 10 ranking after a strong start in conference play. A pivotal matchup with the Sooners on Saturday could have a large impact on the rest of their season.

The Longhorns had an impressive overtime win against Iowa State and seem to be finally finding their groove under the Shaka system.

Not Looking Good - Oklahoma State, Texas Tech

The Cowboys were knowingly going to struggle this season and haven't let anyone down on their predictions so far.

On the other hand, Tech fans had high hopes entering conference play, but the realities of the Big 12 have the Red Raiders off to a disappointing 1-4 start.
