Tramel: Hold your nose and rank OSU No. 1 in the Big 12

Oklahoma State's Tylan Wallace (#2) and his teammates gather for the alma mater after beating Tulsa during their first game of the season at Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater on Saturday, September 19, 2020. OSU won the game 16-7. JOHN CLANTON, TULSA WORLD

2. Texas 1-0: The Longhorns play at Texas Tech on Saturday. If UT rolls, it likely will be back at No. 1.

3. Oklahoma 1-0: The Sooners host Kansas State on Saturday; strange to be in the last third of September and still know so little about this OU squad.

4. Baylor 0-0: Total bummer that Baylor-Houston was wiped out. I hope this isn’t the norm but it might be. Baylor-Louisiana Tech was canceled by COVID on the Bulldogs’ side. Houston-Memphis was canceled by COVID on the Tigers’ side. So Baylor and Houston got together, and Baylor canceled because of COVID. What a mess.

5. TCU 0-0: The Horned Frogs are scheduled to host Iowa State on Saturday. Anyone that has the slightest idea what will happen, you’re one up on me.
