Breaking down the Big 12 and the AP poll

By David Ubben

You may remember our friends at Pollspeak from this little exercise, but they also provide the individual ballots throughout the season with their "Pollstalker" function on the website that looks at which voters have teams in extreme places and where each team sits on each voter's ballot.

Four Big 12 teams made the preseason poll, which included a pair of interesting notes: The lowest-ever spot for the Big 12's top team (Oklahoma State at No. 13) and the first time ever the Cowboys had started a season ahead of Oklahoma in the AP poll. Two more Big 12 teams earned votes. Let's have a closer look at each Big 12 teams and how the poll voters placed them where they landed.

No. 13 Oklahoma State
No. 15 Texas
No. 16 Oklahoma
No. 20 TCU
Baylor
Kansas State
