Big 12 power rankings: 684.3

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Just because we appreciate good football 'round these parts: Baylor is averaging 684.3 total yards per game, more than 100 yards ahead of Oregon's 580.2.

Take that, Ducks.

1. Baylor Bears (9-0, 6-0) — Slowly, a lot of folks are finally getting on board the Bears bandwagon. Urban Meyer is not one of those folks. Massive tilt in Stillwater this weekend.

2. Oklahoma St. Cowboys (9-1, 6-1) — OSU would be in Baylor's BCS position were it not for a moonshine'd gag job in Morgantown earlier this year, which becomes more inexplicable with each passing week.

3. Texas Longhorns (7-3, 6-1) — Now that the Big 12 Championship life raft has deflated, it's a wait-and-see on whether Mack Brown's tenure will stay above choppy waters.

4. Oklahoma Sooners (8-2, 5-2) — The sleepy Sooners woke up in the second half against Iowa St. They won't be able to oversleep and win against K-State in Manhattan — a game that starts at 11 a.m.

5. Kansas St. Wildcats (6-4, 4-3) — Ten years ago, KSU pulled off one of the biggest upsets in college football history when it trucked "the greatest team ever." A win against OU this week isn't on that level, but reliving those memories in real time would be a treat for fans.

6. Texas Tech Red Raiders (7-4, 4-4) — This winning in the Big 12 stuff is hard, isn't it Kliff? The Red Raiders are off this week before finishing the year at Texas. Five straight losses to end the year, including three in a row at home, wipes away a lot of that early-season luster.

7. TCU Horned Frogs (4-7, 2-6) — The Frogs made things really uncomfortable in Manhattan for K-State. But, when your season is going like this one, you find a way to board the bus with another "L".

8. Kansas Jayhawks (3-7, 1-6) — James Sims will forever be known as "The Book Stand." Why? In KU's first conference win since 2010, he had 3 rushing TDs against WVU, marking the first time a Jayhawk had done that since, you guessed it, Sims did it in KU's last Big 12 win against Colorado.

9. West Virginia Mountaineers (4-7, 2-6) — If you want to try and figure out a team capable of housing Oklahoma State and also getting shut out by Maryland and losing big to Kansas, be my guest.

10. Iowa St. Cyclones (1-9, 0-7) — A ray of sunshine in a desolate season: ISU didn't allow an offensive touchdown in the first half against Oklahoma — the first time that had happened this season for the Cyclones defense.
