West Virginia's first loss of the year dropped them to a tie for second place in the Big 12, with Kansas State staying strong as the only undefeated team in the conference.

With West Virginia losing their first game of the season in a shocker in Lubbock, Kansas State is the only undefeated team in the Big 12.

Behind the Wildcats, who won on the road at Iowa State, there's a bit of a logjam: of the 10 teams in the conference, only Kansas is at .500 or below. That leaves the Mountaineers as one of four one-win teams, alongside TCU, Texas Tech, and Oklahoma.

The Red Raiders' win over a previously undefeated West Virginia team launches them into the national discussion for the first time on the season. TCU bounced back from a loss to Iowa State with a 49-21 blowout over Baylor, and Oklahoma crushed Texas in the Red River Shootout., 63-21. All four one-loss teams are 2-1 in conference, but Oklahoma has won one less game and currently sits at 4-1 on the year.

Here's a full look at the Big 12 conference standings after Week 7:

Kansas State 3-0 6-0
TCU 2-1 5-1
Texas Tech 2-1 5-1
West Virginia 2-1 5-1
Oklahoma 2-1 4-1
Oklahoma State 1-1 3-2
Iowa State 1-2 4-2
Texas 1-2 4-2
Baylor 0-2 3-2
Kansas 0-3 1-5
