The Big 12 is probably the conference most eager to start the new season after getting shut out of the playoff last year despite two teams that would have been an easy choice to include. Outside of adding New Mexico and maybe Cincinnati, some MAC team, or North Dakota State they will stick with 10 teams for the foreseeable future and continue to struggle finding their One True Champion.

West Virginia 8-4
Oklahoma State 7-5
Kansas State 6-6
Texas Tech 4-8
Iowa State 3-9
Offensive MVP: Trevone Boykin, QB TCU
Defensive MVP: Dominique Alexander, LB Oklahoma
Breakout Star: KD Cannon, WR Baylor
