While I got ya, here are nine things and one crazy prediction:
1. We have a correction. The Big 12 does have an elite team. The Oklahoma Sooners qualify. Forget Oklahoma State, which fell to West Virginia in one of the sloppiest, worst-coached games I’ve seen with just horrible special teams play. But Bob Stoops’ bunch is proving it has a quality defense, which held Notre Dame to 12 first downs; a quality quarterback in Blake Bell, who totaled 291 yards; and a slew of athletic receivers. We haven’t forgotten you, Baylor, which should be 7-0 when the Bears host the Sooners on Nov. 7.
