1* Baylor (3:30 ET): If the ninth ranked Bears were to have a hangover following the embarrassment that was the 49-17 loss to Oklahoma State, logically it would be last week and sure enough they struggled to get by TCU on the road, winning by only a 41-38 margin as two TD favorites. Now, they are back in Waco where they've covered every game....
Thus, I like Baylor to roll big time here against an overrated Texas outfit. If Oklahoma State were to lose to Oklahoma early Saturday, then the Bears would have something major to play for here, namely a BCS bowl. I doubt the Pokes are going to lose in Stillwater, but still I see Baylor "showing up" at home against a name opponent. They have been ridiculous in Waco all season, covering all six games, winning by an average margin of 51.7 PPG! Last time they played here, they destroyed Oklahoma 41-12. It's been a full month since the Bears players have taken the field in their home stadium. They'll be fired up as this is the final game in the 63-year history of Floyd Casey Stadium.
Meanwhile, Texas was also handled this year by Oklahoma State, though their loss to the Cowboys came at home. They've also lost games to Ole Miss and BYU. Like Baylor, the 'Horns best win came against Oklahoma. They simply lack the horses to keep up w/ a Baylor offense that is averaging 635 yards per game and 55.4 PPG. 1* Baylor.
