How the (future) Big 12 and Pac-12 did over the weekend

Week 7 of the college football season was a bit of a mixed bag. The he marquee games saw some good results and some that could be considered bad for the conferences.

With BYU’s move to the Big 12 Conference, there are now two Power Five conferences in which a large swath of college football fans in Utah have a vested interest, joining the Pac-12.


Week 7 of the college football season was a bit of a mixed bag for the future Big 12 and the Pac-12, as the marquee games saw some good results and some that could be considered bad for the conferences.

One game, Oklahoma State-Texas, featured two ranked teams, and four more featured one ranked team. The three highest-ranked teams won, while the three lower-ranked teams lost.

Here are all the results from both conferences over the weekend, plus what’s up next for each team in the conferences (rankings are what they were last week, not updated from Sunday).
