The Big XII baseball pecking order has been firmly established. There's Baylor, Texas A&M and Texas, then everyone else with Kansas bringing up the rear. Until someone proves otherwise, the Bears are the class of the conference. They've won fifteen games in a row and have a perfect 12-0 mark in conference play. Texas and A&M are just a step behind but certainly close enough to be well within striking distance.

Here's how the conference is shaking out...
