TCU, Baylor Atop Week 6 Big 12 Power Rankings. Who’s No. 1?

Saturday Blitz Week 6 Big 12 Power Rankings

All of a sudden, Kansas State looks pretty darn good for playing the Auburn Tigers close. The Wildcats should have won that home Thursday night game with them, and after such a blowout win against Texas Tech, this is clearly a very good team. Bill Snyder’s guys have improved dramatically since almost losing to Iowa State early in the year.

Jake Waters and Tyler Lockett are finding a great quarterback to receiver connection right now, and Curry Sexton is not far behind as the No. 2 receiver. With Waters leading the team in passing and rushing, it’s clear that he has made this team capable of running another form of the option offense this year. The defense is also a great story. In an offense-heavy Big 12 conference, plus playing Auburn out of conference, the Wildcats have still managed to give up only 21 points per game. That’s a lot to be excited about going forward.

Kansas State gets a bye week coming up, and then we really get to find out how good these guys are. The Wildcats have a road trip to Oklahoma on Oct. 18, and after a home game with Texas, Oklahoma State, TCU, and West Virginia are all on the schedule. Baylor is at the end of the season. Don’t count these guys out of the Big 12 race.

The Wildcats are looking as good as anybody in the conference right now, so putting them at No. 4 still might be a little bit too low.
