Hey, the Baylor Bears are leading the Big 12 South! That deserves a ranking, doesn't it? Of course! Granted, they have yet to play Oklahoma, or Oklahoma State, (or Texas, but at this point the Longhorns have become irrelevant), but they're bowl eligible for the first time since 1995.

Missouri is one the biggest surprises of the season, and with Iowa State's upset over Texas, and Mizzou's upset of Oklahoma and Nebraska's defeat of Oklahoma State - so is the tilt of power to the Big 12 North.

Michigan State is another huge surprise. They fell behind 17-0 midway through the second quarter and trailed 24-14 early in the fourth quarter, then scored 21 points in the fourth quarter to win 35-27. That shows a resilience that Sparty hasn't shown in quite some time.

It's a huge week for Husker fans. Huge.

As always, feedback required.
