OKLAHOMA STATE COWBOYS (2-1) at (16) BAYLOR BEARS (3-0)
WHERE: McLane Stadium, Waco, TX
WHEN: Saturday, 7:30 p.m. ET
LINE: Baylor -8.5
For our third match-up of the week, we head to Big 12 country as Baylor opens its Big 12 schedule with a visit from Oklahoma State. The Bears could be feeling the pressure Saturday night as they may carry the hopes of an entire conference on their shoulders. With Big 12 play underway, the conference has just two undefeated schools left in West Virginia and Baylor. A loss by either of those teams could mean that the conference might be left out of this year’s College Football Playoff.
For more on this match-up, DSN College Editor Alex Muller:
“Talk about a good, old fashioned Big 12 shootout this weekend. And all of a sudden, this game has major conference supremacy implications with both Oklahoma and Texas showing chinks in the armor through the first three weeks of the season.
Few teams spread the ball and throw it around the yard better than Oklahoma State and Baylor. This could have been a match-up between two ranked foes, before the Pokes were upset at home two weeks ago from Central Michigan. Nonetheless, it should be a very exciting showdown in Waco Saturday night.
The current over/under for this game is 75. I don’t even know if that does it justice.”
