It has been tougher than ever to figure out the Big 12 this year.
Texas Tech (7-0, 4-0 Big 12), which was picked to finish seventh in the league’s preseason poll, is now ranked 10th in the country and alone in first place.
Baylor (6-0, 3-0) is tied for second with Texas (4-2, 3-0), is ranked No. 6 nationally and is the Big 12’s highest team in the BCS standings at No. 8.
The bottom half of the Big 12 might be just as surprising.
