2014 Big 12 Football Conference Predictions

It was a bit of a mystery who would come away with the Big 12 title in 2013, but this year it won't be.

Oklahoma and Baylor are the favorites coming off solid seasons. The Sooners' big win over Alabama set the tone heading into the 2014 season, while the Bears proved they could play with the best by winning their first Big 12 title and playing in the Fiesta Bowl. 

While most focus on Oklahoma and Baylor, Kansas State could be in the running if coach Bill Snyder can use his magic to surprise as he did in 2012, with a senior quarterback and talent on the defensive end. 

Other teams in the mix might be Texas, who will now be led by head coach Charlie Strong, as well as Oklahoma State and Texas Tech. It’s expected that the Pokes and the Red Raiders will finish in the middle of the pack, but you never know in the wild Big 12. 

A dark-horse candidate will be TCU, who will be trying to forget what occurred in 2013. Going 4-8 is almost unheard of for a Gary Patterson team, but the Horned Frogs could be a threat to be reckoned with if the offense can click right away with new offensive coordinators. 

The Big 12 will be highly competitive this season for the most part and should see at least two teams advance to major bowl games at the end of the season.
