The Big 12 title race is shaping up to be very, very interesting. If history has taught us anything, Kansas will end up on top in the end, but the journey to get there will at least be fun to follow. Kansas State and Baylor, who deserve a lot of credit for putting together a great run of games following the injury to Tristan Clark, are on top of the pecking order at 6-2. Iowa State and the Jayhawks are right behind them at 6-3 and the way things are going Texas Tech, Texas and TCU should feel like they have an opportunity. At this point just about every conference game is huge and there are plenty of big ones coming up this week, highlighted by Kansas’ trip to Manhattan on Tuesday night.
