OU is the default pick because they return a lot and they win the Big 12 constantly.

OSU has a superpowered offense, but a susceptible defense.

KSU returns a good bit but lacks ceiling.

TCU and Texas are the true X factors – any finish between 1st and 5th is possible.

West Virginia will take a step down, but I suspect it will be even steeper than imagined.
