Big 12 title odds put Horns in middle of pack, so there's a chance
The odds are out and they simply confirm what every Big 12 team, particularly Texas and Oklahoma, now most certainly realize: There's a new world order in the conference.
The Longhorns and Sooners, so used to being Big 12 title favorites, have taken a backseat to rising powers and last season's co-champs, TCU and Baylor, which can claim back-to-back league titles.
Sportsbook operator CG Technology posted its odds Monday for 2015 champions from each Power 5 conference. TCU (17-10) and Baylor (5-2) are favored to win the league title. Oklahoma (4-1) , Oklahoma State (5-1) are next. Texas (7-1) is smack-dab in the middle.
So there's always a chance.
Here's how the entire conference shakes out, according to CG Technology:
Oklahoma State 5-1
Kansas State 10-1
West Virginia 15-1
Texas Tech 20-1
Iowa State 25-1
