No. 9 West Virginia begins Big 12 play this week after a 3-0 non-conference start.

The West Virginia Mountaineers wrapped up non-conference play on Saturday and will now begin Big 12 play for the first time. The Mountaineeers are 3-0 and are up to No. 9 in the latest Associated Press poll, but will face a few more challenges as conference play begins.

West Virginia is one of seven remaining undefeated teams in the Big 12. Six of the 10 teams in the conference are ranked and only Kansas at 1-3 has a record below .500. TCU and Kansas State currently sit atop the conference standings with 1-0 records, after they beat Kansas and Oklahoma.

Here is a closer look at the complete Big 12 standings through four weeks.
