Conference Standings

Movin on Up - Kansas, Texas Tech

Texas Tech did their best to help the effing Jayhawks position themselves for yet another title run, beating both Baylor and Iowa State last week.

Not Looking Good - Baylor, Texas

That loss at home to Texas Tech was not a good look for the Bears. Hopefully they continue to slump into Tuesday.

Texas has a tough week, facing both Oklahoma and Iowa State on the road after earning their first ranking of the season.
