With Texas and Oklahoma leaving for the SEC in 2024, the “new” Big 12 schools will be looking to supplant themselves as the top dog in the conference. While many will argue recent success, like UCF, a lack of legitimate history will hinder their argument.

To be considered a top school, you must have a successful track record. Wins, for example, are the most important aspect of being considered a great program.

When it comes to programs and wins in the Big 12, West Virginia possesses the most all-time wins in the conference – and it’s really not close.

The Mountaineer Football program possesses 774 all-time wins. TCU is a nearly 100-short distant second with 679.

So if we were to argue the best program based on wins, West Virginia would easily take the cake. That is not the only category they are the best in for the conference, however.

West Virginia also leads the conference in all-time winning percentage (59.5 %). The BYU Cougars come in second in this category (58.1%).

So there you have it, folks. The Mountaineers are LITERALLY the most successful program remaining in the Big 12.

Now it is just a matter of turning that past success into present success…
