We are officially less than a month away from the start of 2022 college football season. Teams all over the country are preparing for the fall with the ultimate goal of a national championship on the mind.

The Big 12 Conference is wide open after witnessing tons of shake up over the offseason.

Baylor and Oklahoma State are looking to build on double-digit wins seasons despite both losing key talent on the defensive side of the ball. Texas Tech, TCU and Oklahoma all welcome new head coaches to the helm. Graduation and the transfer portal has created quarterback turnover all over the conference.

Steve Sarkisian and the Texas Longhorns are hoping for a bounce back campaign after revamping the roster via transfers and recruiting. Quinn Ewers, Isaiah Neyor headline the group of exciting newcomers for the Horns.
