I think I can speak for both Tigers and Husker fans when I say, another Saturday without football blows. Second straight for the Huskers, third straight for Mizzou. The B12 blew it's wad on Thursday with the Nebraska/Tiger game as it's a pretty weak slate for Saturday. Let's do it.
Oklahoma State 27 Texas A&M 13
The really only intriguing B12 game this week, and an upset possibility. The Pokes are rolling into College Station sans Dez Bryant, and they haven't been impressive so far this year. Losing their playmaker can't be good. Kyle Field is one of the toughest stadiums to win at when you're coming in with your arm behind your back. OSU still has the talent to win this, but it's the talent they're missing that could hurt. Kendall Hunter and Perrish Cox were both out in the Pokes last game vs Grambling State. Didn't need them, but it's obvious, they have been injured. Pokes still roll, but this one is on upset watch.
Kansas 38 Iowa State 10
Iowa State is sketchy. One week they look ok, the next they couldn't beat Ames School for the Blind. kU gets it rolling early in this one, and maybe, just maybe, they'll actually impress in this one. After slow starts against Duke and not putting away USM, kU should make this look easy. 'Should' being the key word. If you're watching this one, apologies to you, but you can at least keep your eye on Jake Sharp and see how he looks after missing some time lately. Hell, it'll at least keep it interesting.
Oklahoma 42 Baylor 7
Oh mah gawwwwd! Sam Bradford is back! Steel chair! Oh, I'll put away the Jim Ross/Gus Johnson voice. Contrary to popular belief, Landry Jones didn't lose games for the Sooners. He played damn well actually. The Sooners are all sorts of banged up; Gresham, receivers, LBs, and on. Baylor has a good D with Jordan Lake and Joe Pawalek, but this is where the Bears start missing Robert Griffin. Sooners just have too much talent.
Texas Tech 38 K-State 9
K-State comes off that huge Farmageddon win, and Taylor Potts is questionable coming off a concussion for the Red Raiders. Let's be honest though; K-State isn't good, and TTech could plug in their 2nd stringer and have him light it up. Steven Sheffield is in line if Potts and his ginger beard can't go. Brandon Banks must have another huge game if K-State is to keep this one close.
Texas 58 Colorado 13
Yeah, um, you know playoff baseball is on, right? Buffs fans may want to flip over to the Rockies game.
