5 Michigan State University Logo Michigan State The Nassar scandal seems to have shaken up this team. LW: 4.
6 Auburn University Logo Auburn I have been severely underestimating Auburn, and now they're on the 2-line. LW: 13.
7 Texas Tech University Logo Texas Tech With Kansas falling, Texas Tech is now my highest ranked Big 12 team, after beating Texas and TCU. LW: 11.
8 University of Cincinnati Logo Cincinnati Not losing means Cincinnati is rising. Close between them and Kansas. LW: 9.
