The Cowboys’ slide flipped the Big 12 in the rankings. At 14, the Pokes were first in the league ahead of Iowa State (17), Oklahoma (18) and Texas (22). Now they are last among ranked Big 12 teams.

Oklahoma took OSU’s place in 14th after its Bedlam win, and Iowa State is up to 15 after blowing out Kansas State in Ames. Texas rose two spots to 20 during an off week.

The Cyclones and their fans were also happy with the Bedlam result with their only conference loss coming to OSU.

This weekend further complicated OSU’s Big 12 title hopes but solidified the path for Iowa State to make its first appearance in the Big 12 title game. The Cyclones’ last conference championship came all the way back in 1912 as part of the Missouri Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Association.
