3rd Annual USB College Football Head Coach Power Rankings (BIG 12)

After a week off due to a little mini-vacation, the THIRD annual USB College Football Head Coach Power Rankings returns with a BANG! I know everyone who reads these things highly anticipates getting to the conferences that actually matter to the big picture and here we are. WE HAVE ARRIVED!

No offense to the smaller conferences in college football, but these are the head coaches who are the captains of the teams that will likely be fighting for a shot at the playoffs at the end of the year.

First up? The weakest division of the POWER 5 conferences, the BIG 12!

Can ANYONE in the BIG 12 finally step up and take Bob Stoops place at the top of the dinner table?

I doubt it, but let’s find out anyway…….
