This could finally be the week that we have our first Big 12 Championship Game participant secure their ticket to Dallas. It is set up to be a fun week in the wild, wild west, and we are here to predict exactly how everything will shake out this weekend.
- Kansas at Texas Tech, Noon on FS2:
Do I really need to give an explanation here?
Texas Tech 45, Kansas 14
- Oklahoma State at TCU, Noon on ESPN2:
This game should be a lot closer than many are expecting. The Cowboys have been the biggest disappointment in the Big 12 this season, and TCU could likely catch them sleeping. I like the Cowboys, but anything could happen.
Oklahoma State 31, TCU 21
- Texas at Kansas State, Noon on FOX:
What the hell happened to Kansas State? It appears as if the Mountaineers broke them. The Longhorns should win this easily, but it won’t be enough to save Tom Herman’s job.
Texas 35, Kansas State 17
- West Virginia at Iowa State, 3:30 on ESPN:
This game will be the best of the weekend. Two of the conference’s best defenses will slug it out, with the one who forces the most mistakes coming out on top. I expect the Cyclones to take care of business at home, but it will come down to the wire.
Iowa State 21, West Virginia 20
- Baylor at Oklahoma, 8:00 on FOX:
The Bears finally snapped their long losing streak last week, but they will start another one against the Sooners. Oklahoma is hot, and nobody wants to play Lincoln Riley’s bunch when they’re rolling.
Oklahoma 42, Baylor 21
