Big-12 Standings After Week 1

By Keith Antigiovanni

The Big-12, after a stormy off season and with a stormy season approaching, is undefeated with all 10 teams winning.

Texas opened the season with a 34-9 victory over Rice as Coach Mack Brown tries to get his team on track while in-state rivals Texas A&M, Texas Tech and Baylor also took care of business.

Oklahoma and Oklahoma State were also winners over Tulsa and Louisiana-Lafayette respectively. Missouri had trouble with but won 17-6 over Miami (Ohio). Kansas beat McNeese State handily and Kansas State defeated Eastern Kentucky. Iowa State also won over Northern Iowa.

Just days before the season opener A&M tried to get out of the Big-12 for next year and join the SEC but now four teams: Texas, OU, Texas Tech and OSU said they will not stop A&M from going to the SEC however Baylor, Kansas, K-State, Missouri and Iowa State have filed a lawsuit to stop them because of the television contract with FOX.

Texas and OU are now flirting with the possibility of joining the Pac-12 along with Tech and OSU while the other five could join the Big East if the Big-12 Conference ends and of course A&M could go to the SEC. Stay tuned to your favorite college football soap opera, as the conference turns.
