Big 12 power rankings: Kansas State leads loaded conference

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Kansas State is the top dog in a loaded Big 12 after beating the Oklahoma Sooners.

Kansas State's surprise win over the Oklahoma Sooners shook up the Big 12, which was expected to be Oklahoma's to win this season. A lot of outlets have had K-State as a dark horse to take it, and now they're up to being the favorites. AOL SportingNews put the Wildcats at the No. 1 spot in their latest Conference Power Rankings, leading a conference that is loaded with solid teams.

The reason K-State made the top of the list? The big wins that they've put together early:

It’s an easy call for us, based on K-State’s body of work. Its victory in Norman was by far the best W for any Big 12 team thus far. Its earlier 52-13 smackdown of Miami—which is 3-1 with a pair of ACC road wins—looks pretty terrific as well.

Only Kansas has a losing record in the conference right now, while seven different teams are undefeated entering conference play. The Wildcats are the only team at 4-0 with the only conference win so far -- other teams will begin their Big 12 play over the weekend.
