Oklahoma and Texas both won must-win games in surprisingly blowout fashion over (at the time) ranked teams, while Iowa State beat Kansas and the two basically just traded places in the AP poll two days later.

K-State got another résumé-repairing win, this time over Baylor, and TCU collected its first Big 12 road win ever.

Things were very nice in the non-conference, with only sad sacks Bradley, Nebraska-Omaha, Savannah State and UMKC losing. Meanwhile, Georgia, Tennessee and Texas A&M all won huge SEC games, two of them on the road.

Long Beach State continued rolling through Big West play, while Texas Southern remains undefeated in its conference. Arizona netted a huge road win, and Pittsburgh and Purdue stayed above .500 in conference play.
