Big 12 lunchtime links
By Brandon Chatmon
Here are some
highlights of last weekend's action
in case you missed anything.
Oklahoma defensive tackle Jordan Phillips will
likely miss the rest of the season
due to a back injury. The Sooners will need
some inexperienced defensive tackles to step up
in his absence, writes Jason Kersey of The Oklahoman.
Iowa State coach Paul Rhoads
doesn't sound very excited about facing Baylor
this weekend, writes Bobby LaGesse of the Ames Tribune.
TCU coach Gary Patterson
isn't a fan of bye weeks once Big 12 play begins
, writes Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
"You can just tell the
Big 12 is up for grabs for anyone who wants it
," says Oklahoma State's Parker Graham. The Oklahoman's Gina Mizell has the story.
Bad production on offense has
overshadowed a good start by Kansas' defense,
says Tom Keegan of KUsports.com.
Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty showed
unusual poise in his first road start
, writes John Werner of the Waco Tribune. Bears receiver Corey Coleman was
suspended for the first half
against Iowa State for a block on KSU's Kip Daily last weekend.
The Wildcats are tired of
coming close but coming up short
in losses to Baylor and Oklahoma State, writes Nicolas Wahl of the Manhattan Mercury.
OU offensive coordinator Josh Heupel
might have outsmarted himself
against Texas, says John Hoover of the Tulsa World.
Texas Tech defensive end Branden Jackson is one of the few Red Raiders who
knows what to expect
when his squad travels to Morgantown, W. Va. this weekend, writes Don Williams of the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal.
West Virginia has faced
one of the toughest schedules
in college football thus far, writes Mike Casazza of the Charleston Daily Mail.
