College Football Rankings 2011: Three Big 12 Teams Come Up Big off Idle Weeks
Three of the five Big 12 teams ranked in the top 25 were idle last weekend.
With an extra week to prepare for their second games of the season, Oklahoma, Texas A&M and Baylor picked up where they left off after opening the year with wins.
Top-ranked Oklahoma went into Tallahassee and came out with a statement victory over no. 11 Florida State. The Sooners pulled away late, but they showed the country why they are the top team in college football. It was a true road test, and Bob Stoops' team were unmoved by the hostile environment. The Sooners will host Missouri next weekend.
No. 8 Texas A&M came off its idle week and laid the wood on Idaho to a rune of 37-7. Behind its 18th ranked passing offense and its 17th ranked scoring offense, the Aggies are one of three Big 12 programs in the top 10. The Aggies will host no. 7 Oklahoma State on Saturday afternoon.
No. 17 Baylor, after a huge opening win 50-48 over then-no. 14 TCU, blanked Stephen F. Austin in Waco 48-0 in a shortened game due to lightning. The Bears gobbled up 545 yards of offense to add to its ninth ranked passing offense. And behind its 49 points per game and its stellar quarterback Robert Griffin III, Baylor can put up points with the best of them.
