Big 12’s stock drops after tough weekend

- GUERIN EMIG Tulsa World

Not a promising weekend for the Big 12 Conference.

Iowa State and Texas flunked their screen tests. Oklahoma State, Kansas State and Texas Tech won

unconvinci­ngly. Oklahoma, West Virginia and Baylor all won games that should not have been scheduled.

This week brings the first league game — Baylor at Kansas — and opportunit­ies for OU, OSU and West Virginia to assert themselves.

1. Oklahoma (2-0)

Last week: Did what was expected

and pummeled Western Carolina 76-0

This Saturday: vs. Nebraska, 11 a.m. (FOX23)

I watched the 1971 Game of the Century on YouTube the other day. If the Sooners and Huskers really want to honor that epic this weekend, they’ll put their quarterbac­ks and running backs in tear-away jerseys. What were those things made of, Kleenex?

2. Iowa State (1-1)

Last week: Lost top-10 showdown with Iowa 27-17
