Big 12 in the National Rankings

Written by Jay Beck

We're only three weeks into the college football season and the Big 12 is well presented in the national statistics. Its early, but here's a look at who, what, and where the Big 12 players and teams stand on the national scene.

No doubt these will fluctuate as teams get into the meat of their schedule, but you have to play who's on your schedule (cupcakes or not) and a whole slew of players are off to hot starts. I only included those players/teams in the top 15 in each category. For a complete list of stats, you can check them out at NCAA.org.
