What were supposed to be the Big 12 also-rans took some of the spotlight from favorites such as Oklahoma and Oklahoma State over the weekend. Kansas improved to 2-0 with its overtime victory over West Virginia. Iowa State did the same with a road win over rival Iowa.

Kansas State blew out former Big 12 foe Missouri in the first meeting with the Tigers in more than a decade.
