    Big 12 football rankings heading into Week 5 of the 2016 season. Most of the conference had a bye week as Baylor moves into the top spot.


    A good portion of the Big 12 either had a bye or played a non-conference game this week, leaving the rankings mostly the same. The only battle in Big 12 play was Baylor’s win over Oklahoma State following a lightning delay.

    Here’s how the rest of the Big 12 looks heading into Week 5.
