Baylor vs. Oklahoma State GameDay

Baylor faces off against Oklahoma State, with both teams looking to keep their Big 12 title hopes alive.

Another week, another huge game for the Big 12 and the Baylor Bears, as they travel north to take on the Oklahoma State Cowboys.  The Cowboys are a perfect 10-0 this year, with two big home games coming up against Baylor and rivel Oklahoma. The Bears lost last week at home to the Sooners, and will be looking to rebound with a big win, and their first in Stillwater since 1939.

Statistical Comparison

The Cowboys have one of the most improved defenses in the Big 12, using a dominant pass rush to stymie their opponents passing attack. They will give up some big plays here and there, but will also get their share of big ones as well. Their run defense is a step behind though, and an area where they have been hurt.

When Oklahoma State has the ball, they get big plays with their passing attack, and finish drives with their rushing attack. This could be bad news for the Bears, as their run defense has been very good this year, especially with Andrew Billings healthy.  The Cowboys do not run the ball well at all, expecpt in the redzone when backup QB JW Walsh comes into the game.

Injuries Mounting for the Bears

Coming off of their first loss of the season, the Baylor Bears will limp in to a top 10 matchup against the Oklahoma State Cowboys this Saturday. We take a look at who is out and who will try to go.

Coming off of their first loss of the season, the Baylor Bears will limp in to a top 10 matchup against the Oklahoma State Cowboys this Saturday. 

Coach Art Briles met with the media yesterday and was somber about the state of his football team. Coming off of a 44-34 loss to then #12 Oklahoma, the Bears will head to Stillwater to face an Oklahoma State team that they have never beat in Boone Pickens Stadium. 

Lets take a look at who the Bears will likely be without on Saturday:

Baylor looks to Rebound against Oklahoma State

USA Today Sports

The 8-1 Baylor Bears travel north take on the 10-0 Oklahoma State Cowboys Saturday night, with both teams needing wins to keep their Big 12 title, and national title, hopes alive.

Coming off of their first loss of the 2015 football season, the Baylor Bears travel north up to Stillwater, Oklahoma to take on the Oklahoma State Cowboys Saturday evening.  The 6th ranked Cowboys are unbeaten this year, and are in the driver's seat for a Big 12 title, and possibly a spot in the College Football Playoff.  With home games against Baylor and rival Oklahoma to close the year, the Cowboys can make a big statement Saturday night.  

Stillwater has been rather unkind to the Bears, who have not won a true road game against Oklahoma State since 1939.  The Bears have visited Stillwater 11 times since their last victory, and have lost badly in most of the games.  Most recently, a 49-17 win that was the Bears lone regular season loss in 2013. In the four games Art Briles has coached in Stillwater for the Bears, he has lost 49.25 to 18.75.  It has been ugly for Baylor, there is no other way to describe it.
