Big 12 Basketball Conference Power Rankings - Week 5

The very top and very bottom stayed the same, but lots of shuffling inbetween.

1. Kansas Jayhawks

Overall Record:  10-0
Last Week's Record: 1-0
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 1 - No movement
What Matt Says: Josh Selby is the real deal.  But he doesn't address the softness that looks to be Kansas' Kryptonite.

2. Missouri Tigers

Overall Record:  10-1
Last Week's Record:  2-0
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 2 - No movement
What Evan Says: It was nice to see Mizzou put teams away early after a few closer-than-should-be games. Another test on Wednesday in the Busch Braggin’ Rights game against Illinois.

3. Texas Longhorns

Overall Record:  9-2
Last Week's Record: 2-0
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 6 - Up three spots
What Matt Says: Got a great win "at" North Carolina, but they looked totally out of sync at times on offense.

4. Baylor Bears

Overall Record:  7-1
Last Week's Record: 1-1
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 2 - Down two spots
What Matt Says: Their zone was exposed by a Gonzaga team that really needed the win, but Perry Jones III looked unbelievable.

5. Kansas St. Wildcats

Overall Record:  9-2
Last Week's Record: 0-1
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 2 - Down three spots
What Joe Says: Have a feeling this season isn't going to reach pre-season expectations. Could be a roller coaster year, just have to see where at on the ride the Wildcats are come March.

6. Texas A&M Aggies

Overall Record:  10-1
Last Week's Record: 1-0
Last Week's Ranking/Movement:5 - Down one spot
What Evan Says: Good win over Arkansas despite the bad bench clearning-brawl.

7. Oklahoma St. Cowboys

Overall Record:  10-1
Last Week's Results: 1-0
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 7 - No movement
What Joe Says:. Hard to argue with results at the moment as all they keep doing is winning. Three of next four against Stanford, Gonzaga & K-State.

8. Iowa St. Cyclones

Overall Record:  10-2
Last Week's Record: 1-0
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 9 - Up one spot
What Joe Says: Tens wins already for this team. Hilton Magic probably isn't all the way back yet but it has a pulse.

9. Nebraska Cornhuskers

Overall Record:  9-2
Last Week's Record: 1-0
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 8 - Down one spot
What Joe Says: Beating who they should beat right now which is a good sign. This team should be able to at least compete this year in the Big 12.

10. Colorado Buffaloes

Overall Record:  7-3
Last Week's Record: 2-0
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 10 - No movement

11. Oklahoma Sooners

Overall Record:  5-6
Last Week's Record: 0-1
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 11 - No movement
What Matt Says: Lost to an undefeated Cincinnati team that really shouldn't be undefeated.

Last Week's Record: 0-1
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 12 - No movement
What Evan Says:Whattayouknow? After 10 days off, the Red Raiders picked up where they left off, losing to UTEP by 11.
