Would you look at that? Texas is bowl eligible. We now have seven good teams in the Big 12.

A very small slate of Big 12 games told us a lot about the conference over this past weekend. Texas’s upset over Oklahoma State obviously stood out the most, TCU might have put itself in a bit of trouble by struggling with Kansas, and, well okay, we learned nothing from Oklahoma-Texas Tech. But those other two games were enough.

But how much of an effect does it have on our Big 12 Power Rankings?

The Big 12 is one of the deepest conferences in college football despite only having 10 teams, and it has been showing on a week-to-week basis over the past few weeks. With certain teams getting better, there’s more parity. But there is also a clear-cut top three. Then you have No. 4 through No. 7 jumbled up, and No. 8 through No. 10 are just plain bad.

Like the Big 12 has been all year, it’s pretty clear which tier every team in the conference belongs in. It’s just a little tricky to determine where the teams in that tier.

But having done our best to separate everybody, here are our Big 12 Power Rankings following Week 12 of the college football season.
