1. Missouri Tigers

Overall Record: 22-2 (9-2 conference)
Last Week's Record: 2-0
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 2, up one spot
What Evan Says: All things considered, that KU victory was one of the biggest wins in school history. BTW, I love hyperbole.

2. Kansas Jayhawks

Overall Record: 18-5 (8-2)
Last Week's Record: 1-1
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 1, down one spot
What Nathan Says: The Border War didn't disappoint but now they face another tough test on the road.

3. Baylor Bears

Overall Record: 21-2 (8-2)
Last Week's Record: 2-0
Last Week's Ranking/Movement:3, same
What Nathan Says: This is their second week in Big 12 play that they have to face KU and Mizzou back-to-back. Can't go 0-fer again.

4. Iowa St. Cyclones

Overall Record: 17-6 (7-3)
Last Week's Record: 2-0
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 4, same
What Nathan Says: They're on a roll now but just ask Missouri how difficult it is to play your best at Gallagher-Iba Arena.

5. Kansas St. Wildcats

Overall Record: 16-6 (5-5)
Last Week's Record: 1-1
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 5, same
What Joe Says:
Cats better beat Tech if they have any NCAA Tourney hopes as schedule once again gets brutal.

6. Texas Longhorns

Overall Record: 15-9 (5-6)
Last Week's Record: 2-0
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 7, up one spot
What E. Carnes Says: The Longhorns are breathing easier now that the they're clear of that nasty stretch of schedule. Texas grabbed an easy win over Tech and was able to seal a close a game in College Station.

7. Oklahoma St. Cowboys

Overall Record: 11-12 (4-6)
Last Week's Results: 1-1
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 9, up two spots
What Evan Says: Easy win and close loss last week, but ISU, @KU and @Mizzou are their next three, so they may lose some of the ground they gained in this Power Poll.

8. Texas A&M Aggies

Overall Record: 12-11 (3-8)
Last Week's Record: 0-3
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 8, same
What E. Carnes Says: The Aggies showed some fight in their losses to Baylor, K-State, and Texas — thanks mostly to Elston Turner who has averaged 19.3 ppg over the last 6 games.

9. Oklahoma Sooners

Overall Record: 13-10 (3-8)
Last Week's Record: 0-3
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 6, down three spots
What Evan Says: The Sooners are wishing they played with horseshoes and handgranades this week. 7-point loss to ISU and 3-point loss to Mizzou are still losses.

10. Texas Tech Red Raiders

Overall Record: 7-15 (0-10)
Last Week's Record: 0-2
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 10, same
What E. Carnes Says: Okay, so I guess they won't win a conference game this season.
