Big 12 Football: Which Team is the Favorite to Win the 2022 Conference? -AthlonSports.com

Dave Aranda, Baylor Bears Football

Dave Aranda and Balyor will go into 2022 as the defending Big 12 champions, but are they the team to beat?

Wide open is the best way to describe the Big 12’s battle to win the conference in the 2022 college football season. Baylor defeated Oklahoma State in exciting fashion in last year’s conference title game, and it’s certain that both teams will be in the mix to win it again this year. The Bears are bringing back a handful of starters from a stellar defense and bringing back one of the best offensive lines in the nation for new quarterback Blake Shapen. With the Oklahoma State defense losing several key figures at linebacker and high school, Coach Mike Gundy’s side will need to lean more on quarterback Spencer Sanders to return to the conference title game. Oklahoma is bringing back just nine starters for new coach Brent Venables, but don’t expect the Sooners to fall far from the top spot. Texas and Kansas State are arguably the biggest wildcard teams to feature at next fall’s conference.
