Texas squandered its screen test against LSU. West Virginia made Missouri look like Clemson. Kansas lived down to its punching bag reputation against Coastal Carolina.
So the Big 12 Conference, 10-0 on the opening week of the college football season, slipped a little closer to reality on week two. Not that it was a wasted weekend for the league.
Everyone but KU handled their mismatches professionally. And while it would have been helpful for Texas to win in prime time, the Longhorns gave the nation a fun game. There’s no dropping Sam Ehlinger’s crew in the power poll for that.
