Big 12 Football: Where each team ranks in total offense through Week 7

·2 min read

The Big 12 conference is known for electrifying offenses.

While it is no surprise that Oklahoma is once again leading the pack, Baylor has surprisingly emerged as a legitimate Big 12 title contender this season.

The Bears still have to face Texas, TCU, Oklahoma, Kansas State and Texas Tech. That’s certainly not an easy stretch to close out the regular season, but they do deploy one of the top offenses in the conference up to this point.

With Texas on a bye this week, Longhorns Wire took a look at the Big 12 leaders in total offense through the first seven games. The order of the rankings are determined by yards per game, but we’ve also included the total yards, pass yards, and rush yards numbers.

It’s quite surprising to see Kansas State and Oklahoma State in the bottom half of total offense. The Wildcats were considered a dark horse to compete for the Big 12 title this offseason, and the Cowboys have managed to put together an undefeated record although they have one of the lowest yards per game marks.

Texas and Baylor are the only two Big 12 teams that have more rushing yards than passing yards through the first seven games.

Take a look at how each team stacks up in total offense below.
