Colorado over Oklahoma State…How can the
Cowboys take their starting QB from last year winning seven games and move him
to safety and put in a redshirt but talented freshman in Bobby Reid and expect
the same thing. They can't and OSU is starting to lose ground in the South this
year and looking forward to next year as new coach Mike Gundy doesn't have
eligibility left and the Buffs take an important step in winning the North title
by pulling off a win on the road against a South team. This one is close if the
Cowboys can get to QB Joe Klatt and force turnovers.
Texas Tech over Kansas…KU kept this one close last year falling one point short 31-30 but the KU offense is not clicking much like most of the North division teams right now. Tech is slowing becoming the sleeper since OU has taken a tumble and Mike Leach's spread offensive seems to be just plugging in the right personnel. Look for the Red Raiders to wear down the Jayhawks after halftime and pull away 51-24.
fans hope that Texas will not overlook Missouri to next weeks showdown with
Oklahoma as Brad Smith can run all over the field if given a chance in a big
game like the Iowa State game last year. Look for Mizzou to keep this one close
but too much offense for

Oklahoma at Kansas State…If it was in Manhattan I'd probably give the ‘w' to K-State, but since it's in Norman I'll go with Oklahoma, 24-17.

Iowa State …As
we all know the historical stats all point to a
victory but this isn't the same Nebraska
team we are used to seeing in Nebraska . Their offense isn't even close to what
we have seen in the past.
offense won't fair much better but they will do just enough to find a way to win
wins 17-14. Iowa
frankly I don't have a clue which team will win this game. However, in an attempt to jinx
I will pick them to win this game even though I hope they lose for obvious
reasons. I guess if I want to jinx
I should just make sure Deace picks them.
Sorry Steve, I couldn't resist. Colorado
Oklahoma … Kansas State
is struggling this season but I'm not convinced
has improved much over last year.
Adrian Peterson will be too much for
will win this game. Oklahoma
Texas … Kansas
has one of the best defenses they have had in a long time but it just won't be
enough to stop the high-powered Texas Tech offense. Texas Tech will put up a lot of points
and win this game easily. Kansas
On the season…
