Our Heisman Watch panel has Penn State's Saquon Barkley as the leading contender for the Heisman Trophy, but Stanford's Bryce Love is gaining ground.
Take a look back at the best performances of Week 7 in the Big 12 and look ahead to Week 8.
With first-year coaches at Oklahoma and Texas, it was supposed to be a rebuilding year for the Big 12. But TCU, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State are each ranked in the top 10 and have the conference in decent shape.
Feeling the Love
Stanford's Bryce Love is the favorite to win the Heisman entering Week 8, barely edging out Penn State's Saquon Barkley. Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield and Oklahoma State's Mason Rudolph are also in the mix.
Rudolph wasn't afraid to air it out against the Baylor defense, throwing for 459 yards and three touchdowns.
West Virginia's come-from-behind win over Texas Tech moved the Mountaineers up to No. 4 in the Big 12 power rankings and kept them in the title hunt.
Any team that records four TD drives of 69 yards or longer in less than a quarter, as Oklahoma State did vs. Baylor, is very dangerous.
Buckeye O stands out in Husker rout
Ohio State just edges out Oklahoma State for FBS' most efficient offense from Week 7. Two Pac-12 stalwarts, Stanford and Arizona, turned in pretty sharp performances as well.
Penn State has climbed to No. 2 in the Associated Press poll behind unanimous No. 1 Alabama after a wild weekend of upsets gave the Top 25 a major makeover.
Mason Rudolph passed for 459 yards and three touchdowns and ran for another score to help No. 14 Oklahoma State beat Baylor 59-16 on Saturday.
Our Big 12 writers are divided on who will win when Texas and Oklahoma split the Cotton Bowl.
The Big 12 is too deep for its own good this season. Don't be surprised to see a win-and-you're-in scenario in the conference title game between one-loss TCU and two-loss Oklahoma State, leaving Oklahoma on the outside.
Rudolph is an NFL-ready quarterback who could go as high as the first round in next year's draft.
Yes, the Cowboys are blessed with tremendous depth at wide receiver. But James Washington is clearly the best on the team, and maybe the best in the nation.
