Week 9 Result: Win, 31-17 vs. Missouri
Week 10: @ Iowa State

Nebraska regained the top position after beating up on Missouri. Taylor Martinez didn’t play at all the second half but they didn’t need him as Roy Helu Jr. rushed for a Nebraska-record 307 yards and three touchdowns. Helu Jr. had TD runs of 66, 73 and 54. Nebraska had a 24-0 lead in the first quarter and never looked back.

Week 10: @ Oklahoma State
Previous Ranking: #6
Baylor has been the surprise of the Big 12 so far. They lost to TCU in week three, which is very respectable and they dropped a shootout at Texas Tech. If they can beat Oklahoma State next week, they could push to be the South’s representative in the Big 12 championship game.
5. Oklahoma State

Week 10: vs. Nebraska
Previous Ranking: #11
Iowa State upset Texas and then played well against Kansas these last two weeks. I felt like this would be the perfect time to give them a bump in the ratings before they get stomped by Nebraska this week.

Week 10: Colorado
Previous Ranking: #12Once again, Kansas is at the bottom of the rankings. The good news is that they had a lead this past week and they were winning at halftime. However, they blew the second half and lost again. They have their best chance at a conference win this week vs. Colorado.
