Big 12 vs Power 5, Group of 5, & FCS

Big 12 Teams: Baylor, Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, TCU, Texas, Texas Tech, & West Virginia

The Big 12 mysteriously has ten teams, that’s ok, the Big Ten has fourteen! This league is not broken into divisions and unlike other conferences, every team in the B-12 plays every other team. A true round robin and as Big 12 officials like to say, “we produce a true championship.”
