Baylor has been one of the most pleasant surprises in all of college football this season. They are still undefeated even though they have had some very close calls.
Oklahoma State has one of the most dynamic offense in the country, one that can hang with anyone.
I am excited for this one to see whether the Bears luck can run a little longer. They are still a month from Oklahoma and Texas.
Baylor has had some close calls beating Iowa State by 2 and Texas Tech by three. Both of those were at home but this will be their first living breathing opponent on the road.
Even though they are not as dynamic as they used to be Baylor is 20th in yards and scoring this season. Coach Rhule is more content with “just winning” than the previous regime.
QB Charlie Brewer is an experienced junior having his best season yet. Up until last week he had not thrown an interception and then he tosses three against Texas Tech. No reason not to expect a more precise performance here.
Coach Rhule has the defense playing better than ever holding opponents to just 17ppg. Only the Red Raiders scored more than 21 points. That gives their offense more room to maneuver.
Baylor is going to need its best defensive outing of the season to slow the Cowboys. I am excited to see if they have it in them.
Oklahoma State Cowboys
Oklahoma State is just one of those programs you want to be good. They are blessed with great offensive talent but this is far from a complete team. They are coming off a loss to Texas Tech two weeks ago (a team Baylor beat).
Chuba Hubbard is an exciting running back. If you thrown out the game against an FCS opponent he has rushed for at least 120 yards in each game. He leads the nation in rushing by 270 yards.
Tylan Wallace is equally explosive when he catches the ball but he is just 5th in the nation in receiving yards. He is averaging an amazing 18 yards per grab.
With so much firepower only a poor defense is holding this club back. They are always going to be in the game though as they truly can score from anywhere on the field.

Baylor is not plodding but I still see this one as an interesting contrast in styles. The Bears are not what they were with the Briles leading the way and RGIII
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Over 66
I like the Cowboys a lot to end Baylor’s undefeated start but I feel like the total is the safer play. They are not going to do that by winning the game 21-17. It is just not in them. They will to it by scoring 49 and giving up almost as many.
The key in this one is going to be the big play. Oklahoma State will make them (emphasis in the plural) an that will give them just enough cushion to win.
