So if Kansas State wins next week, then who resides at the top of the Big XII standings pictured here, and the Big XII’s official conference standings; 7-2 K-State or 9-0 TCU? It is always top to bottom by descending number of wins, so 7-2 on top of 9-0 will look like an ugly error.
We know who gets the Big XII trophy. All this talk about what happens to a 1-loss TCU in the playoff ranking, but the #1 reason to win next week is so that a 9-0 conference regular season realizes what it should—a TCU Big XII title for the Big XII record book, and the accompanying trophy to admire. Baylor got theirs last year, in a mild upset.
It should not be that way, but it is—a reset to 0-0, the regular season record is dismissed, and a one game playoff now decides the Big XII Champion.
