After that Kansas State debacle (31-12), Oklahoma State seems to have gotten back on track a little bit with a big win over Texas in their last outing. The offense posted a nice game as well, hanging 38 points on the board.
As for Baylor, they’ve mustered up just 31 points across their last two games combined, but they’ve also faced some stiff competition in Texas and WVU.
All things considered, this should be a pretty fun matchup. I’m going to go with OK State to keep rolling though.
