Big 12 has Kansas and not much else so far this season in transition year with new teams

The top of the Big 12 looks familiar, with Kansas in first place and ranked in the top 10.

The rest of the league is still shaping up. It might not be as deep this season, its first with West Virginia and TCU instead of Missouri and Texas A&M.

No. 24 Oklahoma State is the only other league team besides the ninth-ranked Jayhawks in the Top 25 and nobody else received a single vote in Monday's poll.

Big 12 teams are just 2-10 against opponents ranked in the Top 25 and the league is seventh in overall RPI — behind the Atlantic-10 and the Mountain West.
