The Mountaineers may be experiencing a much-needed week off, but the Big 12 still had teams in action throughout the weekend.

West Virginia was actually even able to move up the standings despite not playing. WVU will head into the next week as one of only two teams still undefeated in Big 12 play. Oklahoma’s win over Texas in the “Red River Rivalry” moves WVU team up the standings and places them just behind the Sooners.

So how did the rest of the conference perform?
