QT: Big 12 title race now three teams wide

QuickTakesIf you’re a spotter on the oval, the Big 12 title race went three teams wide following Texas Tech’s win at Baylor on Tuesday.  Fresh off a home victory over Kansas, the Red Raiders pulled alongside the Bears and Jayhawks heading toward the next turn.  While TTU has a quirky resume (all but one of its games are either Quad 1 or Quad 4), beating KU and Baylor in a span of four days is impressive.  Following three losses in four games, Iowa State is slightly behind, but let’s not dismiss the Cyclones, either.  We have a long way to go.

Switching to NASCAR central, Auburn beat Alabama in Tuscaloosa. The Tigers are likely headed for a No. 1 seed in the next bracket; their lone loss is in overtime to Connecticut in November.

Additional Quick Takes …

  • Kansas needed every second to hold off Iowa State in Lawrence.
  • The other unbeaten, USC, lost at Stanford.  The Trojans’ profile is hard to manage.  Why?  USC’s best wins are currently San Diego State and Washington State.
  • Illinois avoided a tough loss at Nebraska, scoring 50 points in the second half.
  • Texas AM moved to 13-2 overall after beating Ole Miss.  Following a potentially tricky trip to Missouri, the Aggies get Kentucky at home, followed by road trips to Arkansas and LSU.
  • It feels like every team in the ACC – other than Duke – is on the bubble.  Florida State edged Miami in Tallahassee after taking care of Louisville last week.  Next up:  FSU hosts Duke and plays three of four on the road.
