Expect a lot more competition in the Big 12 during the 2014 college football season.
After a year that saw typical underdogs make some noise, expect to see the usual suspects creep back to the forefront in the race for the conference crown. A lot of that is due to a strong core of returning players.
Some teams will return players that will have them thinking national title while others will just be strategizing on how to reach .500.

Join B/R as we break down which teams are positioned the best based on returning players.
