Kansas re-enters the top 10 in the AP Top 25

In Week 12 of the AP poll, Kansas jumps back into the Top 10 of the poll.

He doesn't look like he is planning on moving out of the Top 25 any time soon.

After a big week, Kansas takes the crown back for being the highest ranked team from the Big 12.  They are also the only team ranked in the Top 10.

The Big 12 has done such a great job beating each other up that the last time they had more than one team in the top 10 was back in week 7 of the poll, and the last time they had a team ranked higher than 8 was in week 4 when Texas was undefeated and ranked 6th.

The Big 12 tied with the ACC for most teams in the poll at 6.
