Big 12 Conference Basketball Power Rankings - Week 8

Conference play began, so we are seeing the real teams emerge. Lots of movement this week.

1. Kansas Jayhawks

Overall Record:  15-0
Last Week's Record: 2-0
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 1 - No movement
What Matt Says: The Jayhawks are still cutting things very close, but so far have always left with a W.

2. Texas Longhorns

Overall Record:  12-3
Last Week's Record: 1-1
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: T2 - No movement
What Matt Says:Lost a great game at home against Connecticut thanks to an over-the-shoulder heave from NBA range as the shot clock expired. Tough luck.

3. Texas A&M Aggies

Overall Record:  14-1
Last Week's Record: 1-0
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 4 - Up one spot
What Evan Says: Beating Oklahoma isn't anything to write home about. Their upcoming schedule, however is..

4. Oklahoma St. Cowboys

Overall Record:  13-2
Last Week's Results: 1-0
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 6 - Up two spots
What Joe Says: J.P. Olukemi looks real good for Travis Ford and the Cowboys. If Keiton Page rediscovers his three pointer and Matt Pilgrim raises his game watch out.

5. Missouri Tigers

Overall Record:  14-2
Last Week's Record:  1-1
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: T2 - Down three spots
What Evan Says: They played a team that was built like them, and lost. Most teams aren't designed to beat Mizzou so fans can look past the CU loss.

6. Baylor Bears

Overall Record:  11-3
Last Week's Record: 2-0
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 7 - Up one spot
What Matt Says: Beat Morgan State and Texas Tech?  Let's not get too excited just yet.

7. Colorado Buffaloes

Overall Record:  12-4
Last Week's Record: 2-0
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 9 - Up two spots
What Evan Says: You couldn't ask for a better performance out of the Buffs on Saturday. Alec Burks... welcome to the national spotlight.

8. Kansas St. Wildcats

Overall Record:  12-4
Last Week's Record: 0-1
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 5 - Down three spots
What Joe Says: At times this team is just plain freaking hard to watch play offense. Wildcats need some semblance of low post scoring to complement Jacob Pullen and Rodney McGruder.

9. Nebraska Cornhuskers

Overall Record:  13-2
Last Week's Record: 2-0
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 10 - Up one spot

Overall Record:  13-3
Last Week's Record: 0-1
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 8 - Down two spots
What Joe Says: Oh so close to being 1-0 in Big 12 play and have home crowd totally geeked up to play #3 Kansas. Still should be fun atmosphere but could have been more.

11. Oklahoma Sooners

Overall Record:  8-7
Last Week's Record: 0-1
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 11 - No movement
