The 2021 Big 12 predictions feature a familiar program atop the standings. Oklahoma has claimed six conference titles in a row, and coach Lincoln Riley’s team is favored to once again hoist the championship hardware in December. The Sooners always have an explosive offense but an improving defense will help this team contend for the national title. Iowa State is Athlon’s pick to be the biggest competition to Oklahoma, with Texas, TCU, Oklahoma State and West Virginia headlining the next tier. Kansas State should rebound after a losing mark last year, while Baylor and Texas Tech have the pieces in place to push for a bowl. Kansas is in rebuild mode under new coach Lance Leipold.
