Iowa State has played TCU, Baylor and Oklahoma and lost to each one by a combined 142-64.

Truth be told, the Cyclones played TCU and Baylor decently tough, falling to the Horned Frogs 45-21 at home and 45-27 at home.

The Sooners, however, took it to Iowa State pretty good, a 52-16 shellacking at OU.

So Cyclones coach Paul Rhoads is as qualified as anyone to give his take on which team is the best of the three. Rhoads didn't seem to leave much doubt.

“We’ve played nine games and Oklahoma is the best team we have played,” Rhoads said.

Of course, before playing Baylor, he said the Bears' offense was nearly impossible to stop. In a Sports Illustrated story this week, Rhoads was asked if this was the best Baylor team he's seen.

“I'd say yes to that,” Paul Rhoads told SI. “Offensively, they've got all the weapons. They've got numerous receivers. They got a great running back. They've got an offense line that can protect and open holes.”

Probably best thing now is to just play the game.
