I think it’s really unlikely KSU loses to WVU and KU for us to leap them.
However, can they lose a rivalry game against the best KU team in a decade and a half? Maybe. KU would certainly want it. So… let’s say we muddy this into a 3-way tie with Texas and KSU. We’ve beaten Texas, Texas has beaten KSU, KSU has beaten us. What’s the tiebreaker? I remember when OU, Texas, and Texas Tech were in this spot, didn’t it end up being AP polling? Is overall record part of it? I know KSU and Texas both lost a noncon game.
We have the worst two teams in the Big 12 left to play. That’s not going to do anything for our AP polling and neither of those games are gimmes considering how gimpy we are and how our entire team lives or dies on Sanders’s wheels. KSU can certainly win their last two. Texas can lose to KU. Lots of ifs, but seems the more likely outcome than KSU simply dropping two.
