After previously being unranked, both Texas Tech and Kansas State appeared in Mark Schlabach's post-spring edition of his Way-Too-Early Preseason Top 25.
Schlabach has the Red Raiders at No. 21 and K-State at No. 23.
Here's what he had wrote about Texas Tech:
"Which Red Raiders team will show up in 2014? The team that started 7-0 in coach Kliff Kingsbury's first season or the team that lost five consecutive games before upsetting Arizona State 37-23 in the National University Holiday Bowl? The Red Raiders still figure to be potent on offense, especially with quarterback Davis Webb coming back."
Schlabach is also high on the Wildcats coming out of the spring:
"If we've learned anything during Bill Snyder's previous 22 seasons at Kansas State, it's that the Wildcats will undoubtedly begin the season underrated. After winning a Big 12 title in 2012, the Wildcats slipped to 8-5 last season. But after losing four of its first six games, Kansas State rebounded to win six of its last seven."
Texas Tech and K-State weren't the only Big 12 teams in Schlabach's Top 25. Both Oklahoma and Baylor remained in his top 10, with the Sooners coming in at No. 3, followed by Baylor at No. 9.
Schlabach had Texas in his pre-spring Top 25, but after watching the Longhorns' spring game, elected to drop them out.
