Well, not every team in the Big-12 saw its stock drop when the most recent USA Today coaches' poll was released. But the conference's two teams with national title aspirations, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State, both lost over the weekend, and now that's being reflected in the rankings. Baylor, on the other hand, got bumped up in the rankings after beating the Sooners.

The current rankings have LSU, Alabama and Arkansas as the top-3 teams, reflecting the SEC's dominance in football.

Boise State comes in at No. 8, Kansas State clocks in at No. 15, and Baylor lands at No. 20. Baylor has the highest ranking of any team with three losses this year.
