2012 Big 12 Football Standings: Kansas State remains atop conference

Ronald Martinez

Kansas State still has a shot at a Big 12 title and a great bowl game despite possibly seeing its national title hopes crash and burn over the weekend.

The Kansas State Wildcats are still in first place in the Big 12 standings despite sustaining a severe dent in their national title hopes after a 52-24 drubbing at the hands of the Baylor Bears on Saturday.

The Wildcats hold a half-game lead over the Oklahoma Sooners, who improved to 6-1 after squeaking by the West Virginia Mountaineers, 50-49. The Texas Longhorns have company in third place, being joined by the Oklahoma State Cowboys after their 59-21 rout of the Texas Tech Red Raiders. With the loss, the Red Raiders dropped to .500 in conference play. Everyone else in the league is below .500, including the Kansas Jayhawks, who remain winless in Big 12 play and are 1-10 overall.

Kansas State holds the tiebreaker over Oklahoma by virtue of its 24-19 victory over the Sooners on Sept. 22. Still, the Wildcats need to beat Texas in their finale to not only stay tied with Oklahoma, but also to avoid allowing Texas to move into a tie for first in the conference in the event of a loss by the Sooners.

Here are the full standings:
