Big 12 Predictions

The Oklahoma State Cowboys have a week off before facing Oklahoma in the Bedlam showdown with a chance to win their second Big 12 title in three years. Here are this week's Big 12 predictions.

Thursday's Game
Texas 35, Texas Tech 28
Texas rebounds from loss to Oklahoma State and runs the ball because everybody runs the ball on Texas Tech. Red Raiders try but cannot save themselves from another 0-for-November. Texas Tech has to be able to do more than pitch and catch.

Saturday's Games
Kansas State 41, Kansas 3
Wildcats take out frustrations on Jayhawks again. Kansas just can't function in most football situations and Kansas State defense will be too much for Kansas. Yes they will stop the run too. KU can't cover Lockett and Thompson.

No. 9 Baylor 45, TCU 20
Bears also recover from loss to Oklahoma State but the first half is close and competitive. Baylor wakes up out of brief hibernation in the second half. Petty throws for close to 400 yards in the win.

West Virginia 31, Iowa State 28
Expect a shootout as both team prepare to put the helmets and shoulder pads up until the spring.
