Where does the Big 12 land in USA TODAY Sports 1-131 re-rank after week 5?




 

There weren't many surprises this week in the Big 12 as most of the teams that were expected to win did. Kansas wasn't favored in their game against Iowa State, but they felt like the better team heading into the week five tilt.

Oklahoma was the only team that suffered what could be called an upset after their 31-point loss to the TCU Horned Frogs.

The Sooners' loss put them behind the eight-ball in the race for a spot in the Big 12 championship game. But they were 0-2 two years ago in Big 12 play and rattled off seven straight wins to reach the title game before knocking off Iowa State for the Big 12 title.

We'll see if Oklahoma can rebound this week against Texas. But before we get to the Longhorns, here's where the Sooners and the rest of the Big 12 stands in the updated 1-131 re-rank from USA TODAY's Paul Myerberg.

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) TCU has been in this position before, third in the College Football Playoff rankings going into its last game before the final four teams are set. Undefeated TCU has a Big 12 championship game to play, and the best the Buckeyes can do is try to tout what they had already done before last week's 45-23 home loss to Michigan that kept them from reaching the Big Ten title game. ''When you look at the body of work that Ohio State has put forward, they have been a top-ranked team the entire season,'' Big Ten Commissioner Kevin Warren told the AP on Friday.

Sadly, if the appeals court cannot grant a hearing on this death penalty conviction, my confidence in our state's judicial system will be destroyed.
