This is a good time to look at the remaining conference schedule. There are six teams still in the hunt for the conference title, and everyone has 10 games left. All six teams have five at home and five on the road.

Pomeroy publishes a percentage chance of winning each game. It changes every day when his system updates, but these are the current figures for each of the six teams (click on photo to enlarge):

If a team is expected to win, the game is highlighted in green. A predicted loss is highlighted in red. The only 50/50 game on this schedule is Kansas at OSU…I gave it to the Pokes since it’s at home.

Aside from Kansas, OSU has the highest percentage among the six teams at 74.3%.

Iowa State and Baylor both have four games remaining against the “bottom four” (West Virginia, Texas, Texas Tech, TCU). All of the other teams in the conference race have five games remaining against the bottom four.

If every game went according to Pomeroy’s prediction, the final standings among this group of six teams would be:

1) Kansas 16-2
2) Oklahoma State 14-4
3) Kansas State 13-5
4) Oklahoma 12-6
5) Iowa State 11-7
6) Baylor 11-7
