Oklahoma and Texas have talent going into this season and Oklahoma State returns a veteran team, but who is under the most pressure in Big 12 football?
Oklahoma has dominated Big 12 football lately, winning the last five conference championships and producing two Heisman winners in Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray and last year’s runner-up Jalen Hurts.
Lincoln Riley is regarded as one of the top offensive minds in all of football and the Sooners are recruiting at a very high level. Yet, it feels like there is some serious pressure mounting on the Sooners to to finally win a playoff game and there could be questions about Riley’s ability to win a national title after last year’s nightmare versus LSU.
It’s that time of year where we ask every college football fans favorite offseason question: Is Texas finally back? The Longhorns need to show that they are taking steps forward in 2020 with this being Tom Herman’s fourth season with the program and after bringing in the Big 12’s top ranked recruiting class yet again.
Oklahoma State is bringing back star running back Chuba Hubbard and receiver Tylan Wallace and could be a threat nationally.
Brock Purdy is back as the starting quarterback of Iowa State and a question I have for the Cyclones is: Have they hit their ceiling as a program?
I’m going to take a look at the Big 12 teams that have something to prove this season.
