Big 12 poll update: Week 2

9/4/2012

Here's how the Big 12 looks in the two major polls, released earlier today.

Associated Press (media)

Last week's ranking in parentheses.

5. Oklahoma (4)

T-9. West Virginia (11)

17. Texas (15)

18. Oklahoma State (19)

20. TCU (20)

21. Kansas State (22)

Others receiving votes:

30. Baylor

Remember, the AP poll is not factored into the BCS, which will be calculated and released for the first time in October.

USA Today (coaches)



Last week's ranking in parentheses.

5. Oklahoma (4)

8. West Virginia (11)

15. Texas (15)

16. Oklahoma State (19)

17. TCU (17)

20. Kansas State (21)

Others receiving votes:

28. Baylor

47. Texas Tech (received one vote)

Not much of note for the Big 12 in either poll. You can get fired up about Oklahoma not dropping further in the poll, but I didn't expect it. Baylor earned plenty of votes, too. Look out for the Bears to crack the Top 25 if they keep winning. They open conference play at West Virginia though, on Sept. 29.
