Yeah, I'm probably crazy. But if Texas Tech is ever going to topple the apple cart, this is the year they're going to do it. Everyone's back and the team got a lot better on defense under Ruffin McNeal after he was named defensive coordinator following the OSU debacle.
5. Kansas State
6. Iowa State
- Kansas' schedule is not very favorable this year. They play Texas Tech, Texas and Oklahoma. Ouch. That's three conference losses right there. Add on Mizzou and a Nebraska team looking for revenge and you have a team that could finish with a losing record in the Big 12. I actually think I'm giving them too much credit by putting them at No. 4 in the division.
1. Texas Tech
4. Oklahoma State
5. Texas A&M
- The possible spoiler here is Oklahoma State. I like their quarterback, Zac Robinson. Oklahoma State will lose to a team they aren't supposed to, but they'll also beat someone they aren't supposed to. OU should watch out when they go to Stillwater.
Big 12 Championship - Kansas City
Texas Tech over Missouri
- Even though it's in KC, I'm not at all sold on Chase Daniel.
