- Kansas receiver Justin McCay says he has no regrets about leaving Oklahoma in an interview with the Oklahoman's Jason Kersey. Losses are making things painful for Kansas QB Jake Heaps, per the Topeka Capital-Journal's Mike Vernon.
- TCU coach Gary Patterson is not ready to play redshirt freshman QB Tyler Matthews, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Stefan Stevenson.
- The routs were nice, but a Big 12 test in Manhattan is just what the doctor ordered for Baylor.

- The Des Moines Register's Tommy Birch breaks down the secret to the returning prowess of Iowa State playmaker Jarvis West.
- Texas Tech is getting some depth back on the offensive line, according to the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal's Don Williams. The Red Raiders aren't just a passing team, either, writes the Charleston Gazette's Dave Hickman.
