How does the Big 12 stack up in the latest USA TODAY Sports 1-131 re-rank after week 3? – Sooners Wire

The Big 12 conference has had a solid start to the 2022 season. They’ve picked up some big wins, mostly thanks to Kansas, but Texas had a strong showing in their matchup with the Alabama Crimson Tide, even though it was in a loss.
In USA TODAY Sports’ latest 1-131 re-rank, the Big 12 has seven teams ranked within the top 42 of Paul Myerberg’s weekly ranking.
