The Big 12 was predicted to be a horse race between OU and Baylor, instead the two purple teams have come out of no where, shutting out opponents and breaking conference scoring records.
TCU literally ran out of fireworks for the season on Saturday after blowing out a team that was supposed to be a lot better, but is instead fighting with ISU on who is going to be eighth in the conference.
