TCU maintained their spot in the Top 25 Monday, remaining at #16 after a 1-1 week in Big 12 play. The Frogs, who sit at 13-2 overall and 1-2 in league contests, are in the rankings for a seventh consecutive week.
The Big 12 is all over the AP, with 14-1 WVU rising to the number two spot, and receiving first place votes, after knocking off one of the hottest teams - and best players - in the country in OU in Morgantown Saturday. Texas Tech made the biggest climb, skyrocketing ten spots to #8 on the strength of two wins, including one in dominant fashion at Kansas. The Jayhawks, for their part, fell to spots to #12, while Oklahoma dropped to ninth. Baylor jumped back in the mix in the receiving votes category, and is on the precipice of the Top 25 after a 1-1 week that included a loss to TCU and a victory over UT, both in Waco.
