Rank the Non-Conference schedules: Big 12

Discuss your thoughts about anything draft related. Mocks, College and Pro. Knock yourselves out!!! RATING: PG-13
  • This time, let's look at the 10-team Big 12. They are the only other power conference that plays a 9-game conference schedule so the teams only have three non-conference games.

    Baylor: SMU, Northwestern State, @ Buffalo
    Iowa State: North Dakota State, @ Iowa, Toledo
    Kansas: SE Missouri State, @ Duke, Central Michigan
    Kansas State: Stephen F. Austin, Auburn, UTEP
    Oklahoma: Louisiana Tech, @ Tulsa, Tennessee
    Oklahoma State: Florida State*, Missouri State, UTSA
    TCU: Samford, Minnesota, @ SMU
    Texas: North Texas, BYU, UCLA
    Texas Tech: Central Arkansas, @ UTEP, Arkansas
    West Virginia: Alabama*, Towson, @ Maryland
    * denotes game played at neutral site

    Nobody's schedule really stands out as head & shoulders harder than the others here. Oklahoma State & West Virginia probably have the strongest cases with their neutral site games. Baylor's my choice for easiest schedule here.

    30% (9 of 30) of their non-conference games are played away from home.

  • 1. West Virginia: playing Alabama at Atlanta and a road game at Maryland.
    2. Oklahoma State: playing Florida State, also at a neutral location.
    3. Kansas State: playing Auburn at home.
    4. Texas: playing three decent home games . . . UCLA should be a Top 10 team, BYU will be pretty tough again, and North Texas is a push over, but not that much of a push over.
    5. Oklahoma: playing Tennessee at home and a gimme on the road at Tulsa.
    6. Texas Tech: UTEP on the road and Arkansas at home.
    7. Iowa State: an away game at rival Iowa will amazingly be the toughest OOC road game for the Big 12
    8. TCU: Minnesota at home and on the road at SMU
    9. Kansas: on the road at Duke
    10. Baylor: TERRIBLE.
