Big 12 rankings, Week 7: The “Dodgeball: A true underdog story” edition


Kansas State coach Bill Snyder tells former Nebraska coach Frank Solich "I own you," as he does just about every other coach.

I didn’t mean it as an insult Saturday night when I told the girlfriend, a huge Kansas State fan, that I don’t think the Wildcats are all that great, but they take advantage of every mistake their opponents make and find a way to win. The bottom line is they won, again, on Saturday and remain in the top three in the rankings. This week’s edition is brought to you by “Dodgeball: A true underdog story”:

1. OKLAHOMA (6-0, 3-0) | LAST WEEK: Defeated Kansas 47-17 | THIS WEEK: Vs. Texas Tech

2. OKLAHOMA STATE (6-0, 3-0) | LAST WEEK:Defeated Texas 38-26 | THIS WEEK: At Missouri

THE RUB: The Cowboys have a great shot at entering their Dec. 1 showdown against Oklahoma undefeated. It helps to have Brandon Weeden, a quarterback who’s as old as this guy …
