The Big 12 preseason men's basketball poll featured a tie for first place between Kansas and Oklahoma State.

You know, the teams that both lost this weekend.

The Cowboys were taken down Saturday by defending conference co-champion Kansas State and sits 0-1 in conference play.

Kansas didn't start conference play, but lost Sunday 61-57 to No. 21 San Diego State, snapping the Jayhawks' 68-game home winning streak against nonconference opponents.

It could be a wild and crazy Big 12 season because there is no shortage of title contenders.

Oklahoma State entered the weekend ranked No. 6 in the country, but the Cowboys are now 12-2 overall and tied for last in the Big 12 with a 0-1 record. Baylor is ranked ninth and has a 12-1 record.

Iowa State, the 13th-rated team in the country, is 13-0 overall. Kansas has lost four games, but they're all to teams that are currently ranked in the top 25. Can they make it 10 titles in a row?

Kansas State is on a roll and likely will enter the rankings. And don't forget about Texas, which is 11-3, and Oklahoma, which is 12-2.

At this point, every Big 12 team has a winning record.

So ... who's gonna be Big 12 champs? Vote here.
