Big 12 football rankings heading into Week 6 of the 2016 season. Baylor kept its top spot with a shaky win and Oklahoma bounced back against TCU.
It isn’t looking good for the Big 12 to get a spot in the College Football Playoff. Sure, Baylor is unbeaten, but is anyone really impressed after needing a late field goal just to beat Iowa State this week.
Oklahoma, TCU and Texas all have two losses after the Sooners rallied to beat the Horned Frogs, and Longhorns fans are after Charlie Strong again after they lost to Oklahoma State.
Here’s how the rest of the Big 12 looks heading into Week 6.
Week 6 Big 12 Football Rankings
Kansas lost 55-19 at Texas Tech on Thursday.
9. Iowa State
Nearly pulled off an upset of Baylor before blowing a late lead.
8. Texas Tech
The Red Raiders didn’t have any trouble putting up points on the Jayhawks.
7. Kansas State
The Wildcats dropped to 2-2 with a heartbreaking loss to West Virginia.
Charlie Strong is back to being criticized again after losing to Oklahoma State for the Longhorns’ second straight loss.
5. West Virginia
The Mountaineers quietly are 4-0 after overcoming two 13-point deficits to beat Kansas State.
4. Oklahoma State
The Cowboys needed that win over Texas badly.
Had Oklahoma down by 14, then trailed by 25 before making it interesting, but the Horned Frogs have now lost twice at home.
Big comeback against TCU gets the Sooners back to .500.
Barely survived against a bad Iowa State team, but the Bears are still unbeaten and doing everything they can to keep the Big 12’s hope alive for a College Football Playoff bid.
