ESPN.com Power Rankings: Dec. 15
Michigan State is No. 1. There can be no argument. And among our voters, there is no argument.
But look past Sparty and see what happens next. That would be Oklahoma. Then Kansas. Then Iowa State. For those keeping score, that's Big 12, Big 12, Big 12.
And don't forget that later in the list resides Baylor and West Virginia. That's Big 12 and Big 12.
So if Kansas is going to continue its run of consecutive league titles, it's not going to be a simple ride.
