Hope Mike Gundy ordered my favorite: Spicy chicken sandwich with pepperjack and Polynesian.
- Baylor coach Art Briles will not address the latest BCS rankings with his team this week. BU linebacker Eddie Lackey named Big 12 defensive player of the week.
- Kliff Kingsbury doesn't mind using doubters to motivate his Texas Tech team. Tech's defensive coordinator is pleased by the second-half adjustments made at West Virginia.
- After two rough games, Oklahoma knows it can't afford more struggles in defending the run. Running back Keith Ford needs to work on his fumbling problem.
- Texas is fine with playing the underdog against TCU and relishes the role. Texas-Baylor could be one of the 10 games that matters most to the BCS picture.
- Rusty Burns will remain the lead play caller for TCU's offense after making the change last week. There's much more to quarterback commit Foster Sawyer than just football.
- Oklahoma State's coaches will keep people guessing on their quarterback situation. Freshman RB Rennie Childs is stepping up and impressing his coaches. Receiver Tracy Moore was surprised to see J.W. Walsh get benched.
- West Virginia coaches are sticking with Clint Trickett at quarterback against Kansas State. Losing a blowout to Baylor was "catastrophic" to the psyche of WVU's defense, but the close losses are hard to take, too.
- Freshman Montell Cozart has officially entered the Kansas quarterback competition. Remembering Bud Adams' role in the Border War of 1960.
- Iowa State trying to bounce back from its worst loss in school history. Everything is up for evaluation for the Cyclones after the Baylor blowout.
- Kansas State is in need of a confidence-booster against West Virginia this week. Like its next opponent, K-State continues to ride the quarterback carousel.
