Week 13 Power Poll

Did Oklahoma take Texas Tech behind the woodshed or what? I'm not so sure Oklahoma isn't the best team in the country; right now, it's a toss-up between them and Florida. Yes, Alabama is undefeated, but frankly, Florida and Oklahoma look much better than the Tide.

Texas fans may protest that head-to-head should mean something...and it does. But one thing we've learned is that on any given week, anything can happen. Oklahoma had their "any given week" against Texas; Texas against Tech. But Texas also had a hiccup against Oklahoma State, and frankly, Oklahoma has looked stronger in most of their games this season. So I'm resorting to my "which team do I think is REALLY better"...and the answer is clear: Oklahoma.

1. Florida
2. Oklahoma
3. Alabama
4. Texas
5. USC
6. Utah
7. Texas Tech
8. Penn State
9. Boise State
10. Oklahoma State

Big XII Standings
1. Oklahoma
2. Texas
3. Texas Tech
4. Oklahoma State
5. Missouri
6. Nebraska (AJ the Huskerh8r still thinks Kansas is better than Nebraska. Personally, I think he's still nursing the effects of drinking too much in Cozumel. Yeah, Kansas looked better than Nebraska against Oklahoma, but Nebraska looked better than Kansas against Texas Tech (37-31 OT vs. 63-21) and Iowa State (35-7 vs. 35-33). And there is the little issue of 45-35 in a game that wasn't really that close...)
7. Kansas
8. Baylor
9. Colorado
10. Texas A&M
11. Kansas State
12. Iowa State
