The good news: Baylor is 5-2 and needs one more win to become bowl eligible. The bad news: The Bears’ remaining slate consists of Kansas State, going to Texas, going to Oklahoma State, Texas A&M and Oklahoma.

It appears that Colorado will like the divisional separation for the new Pac-1012.

It is no mystery that Iowa State faces a talent gap against other Big 12 competition.

Head coach Turner Gill claims he just needs time at Kansas to be successful.

Kansas State placekicker Josh Cherry is also on the Wildcats’ punt and kickoff coverage.

Our buddy John Tamanaha here at NBC has Missouri over Oklahoma this weekend.

Wide receiver Niles Paul expected to hear jaunts and curse words from Texas fans last week, but not from his own Nebraska supporters.

Oklahoma linebacker Travis Lewis: “Don't think about being No. 1, play with a chip on your shoulder.”

Check out how Oklahoma State is doing now that we are half-way through the Big 12’s last season.

My latest hobby is deciphering how different college football ratings work. Obviously, some are better than others evidenced by one poll that actually has Texas ranked No. 6 in the nation. How great is this site?

Quarterback Jerrod Johnson has played rather poorly for Texas A&M as of late, but head coach Mike Sherman is sticking to his player.

One writer feels that Texas Tech (3-3) would be no worse than 4-2 if Mike Leach was still in Lubbock.
