Big 12 slate has potential title game preview with Baylor-OU

Big 12 slate has potential title game preview with Baylor-OU

This is the most visible game left on the calendar of the regular season of Big 12, and an opportunity for both teams to remain in the hunt for the college football eliminator.

Fixer Upper couple and Baylor alumni Chip and Joanna Gaines showed up to Saturday's broadcast, ahead of No. 10 Oklahoma's game against undefeated No. 13 Baylor, in style on a tractor to make their picks.

Although the class of the Big 12 picked up wins, none of them were pretty.

Since his inaugural 2017 season that saw the Bears go 1-11, Matt Rhule has completely turned Baylor's football program around.

Why: "If Baylor's offense starts slow again this week, don't freak out".

The Sooners rank first in yards per game (587.3), first in yards per play (9.29), second in points per game (48.4), fifth in passing yards per game (338.1) and 12th in rushing yards per game (249.22).

Lincoln Riley creating a system that has been successful year in and year out. Oklahoma and Baylor ended up ranked No. 10 and No. 13 respectively, suggesting that there'll must be quite a lot of chaos within the main ten for a title victor to have an opportunity.

The cornerback likely to draw a lot of time against Lamb is Baylor's Jameson Houston (72 rating). The Sooners failed to cover on the road at Kansas and lost outright at Kansas State this season. They rank 39th in S&P+ and 26th in defensive success rate. The OU offensive line has generally played well this season, but this will be its biggest test. They rank 125th in allowing explosive plays, according to collegefootballdata.com.

Federer downs Djokovic to reach ATP Finals semis
The third-seeded Federer is making his 17th appearance at the ATP Finals and is into his 16th semi-final at the year-end event. Roger Federer , six-time ATP World Tour victor , has made it to the semi-finals in 15 of his 16 appearances at the tournament.

The Oklahoma-Baylor game turned into a budding rivalry earlier this decade when coach Art Briles had the Bears soaring in Waco, Texas. The Cardinals are vulnerable against quality offenses, but they catch a break this week and should take care of business versus punchless NC State.

On Offense: Baylor's offense has been hard to figure out. Their kicker bailed them out last week with a field goal to tie it at the end of regulation against TCU to go to overtime, and they only scored 17 points against a bad West Virginia defense.

"Jameson Houston is becoming a really good corner", Rhule said. "They have the best record in the league and they all play each other". The Bears have played several close games in recent weeks, including last weekend's triple-overtime victory over TCU, but the fact remains that they have yet to suffer a blemish in the loss column.

On Defense: This is the matchup everyone wants to see. And if [the defense] is different and it is better-and we believe it is-then it will show up here the rest of the season. They are now holding opponents to 4.4 yards per play, which ranks tenth in the country. He has 13 catches for 302 yards the last two games. Given that the undefeated Bears are now nicely outdoors of qualifying, a 1-loss victor Bears group won't get in. Oklahoma was up 42-21 going into the fourth quarter, but Iowa State scored 20 unanswered points in the final quarter to come within one point of the win.

This is a going to be a very public bet on Saturday.

While the former was somewhat expected as Oklahoma needed to intercept a two-point conversion attempt to avoid what would have been a huge upset loss against Iowa State, the latter was more perplexing.

He's led the Oklahoma offense to at least 34 points in every game this season, and 41 or more points in eight of nine contests.
