The Big 12 prides itself as the only Power Five conference that features a round robin schedule. Everyone plays one another with the top two teams facing off in a rematch every December in Arlington, Texas, in the Big 12 Championship Game.
While that process makes things more equitable, it also makes them harder because there are no breaks due to divisional lines. As such, ranking the Big 12 schedules requires a bit of a different approach. There’s more nuance — some teams get five conference home games while others have four, for example. Those particulars, along with nonconference opponents, make up this year’s Big 12 strength of schedule rankings.
Which teams have the easiest roads to navigate this fall and which ones have the hardest? Let’s break all 10 down below.
