CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - In the span of a year, the Big 12 has gone from turmoil to terrific television.
A conference whose football future was uncertain with the defections of Nebraska, Colorado, Missouri and Texas A&M over the past two seasons has landed squarely on its feet.
The Big 12 has two teams in the top 10 and is the only conference with eight schools that have one or fewer losses.
Newcomer West Virginia has proven to be a great fit for the high-scoring conference, and quarterback Geno Smith is at the center of Heisman Trophy talk.
No. 5 West Virginia and No. 6 Kansas State are the early front-runners, with Oklahoma and Texas trying to keep pace while settling the Red River rivalry in Dallas on Saturday.
