The Big 12 Conference is known for producing excellent quarterback play year in and year out.

The new season will feature many fresh faces around the entire conference. Oklahoma State’s Spencer Sanders is the only surefire starter returning from the 2021 season. The transfer portal brought five new quarterbacks to the Big 12, eyeing starting jobs in the fall. Notables include Quinn Ewers (Texas), JT Daniels (West Virginia), Dillon Gabriel (Oklahoma) and Adrian Martinez (Kansas State).

Quarterback battles are expected to take place at Texas, Texas Tech and TCU. Baylor’s Blake Shapen already beat out Gerry Bohannon to take hold of the job in spring ball.

Athlon Sports released their annual 2022 college football preview magazine, where they took a look at each quarterback situation in the Big 12.

Oklahoma State got top spot in large part due to Spencer Sanders coming back for his senior season. Oklahoma and West Virginia round out the top three after the additions of Gabriel and Daniels.

Here is how Athlon Sports ranked every Big 12 quarterback room entering the 2022 season.
