Big 12's lead as top conference grows

The Big 12 has held onto the spot as college football's top conference via ESPN Stats and Info four several weeks now, but that lead grew in the past week.

Here's where it stands now:

Six Big 12 teams are ranked in the AP Top 25 for the second-straight week as Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Kansas State, Baylor and Texas A&M all took care of business against conference opponents. For the first time this season, the Big 12 has more teams ranked in the AP Top 25 (6) than the SEC (5) despite having two fewer teams in the conference.

Not a bad showing. Could the national title game solve this once and for all if Oklahoma or Oklahoma State meet Alabama and LSU?
