The Oklahoma Sooners and Baylor Bears do battle Saturday in week 10 Big 12 college football action at Memorial Stadium. The Baylor Bears look for a win after winning 4 of their last 6 games. The Oklahoma Sooners look for a win after splitting their last 6 games.

The Baylor Bears have split their last 4 road games. Blake Shapen is completing 67.4 percent of his passes for 1,819 yards, 13 touchdowns and 5 interceptions. Gavin Holmes and Monaray Baldwin have combined for 802 receiving yards and 7 touchdowns, while Hal Presley has 22 receptions. The Baylor Bears ground game is averaging 201.8 yards per contest, and Richard Reese leads the way with 791 yards and 12 touchdowns. Defensively, Baylor is allowing 23.3 points and 337 yards per game. Al Walcott leads the Baylor Bears with 48 tackles, Gabe Hall has 3.5 sacks and Christian Morgan has 2 interceptions.

The Oklahoma Sooners have won 3 of their last 4 home games. Dillon Gabriel is completing 64.2 percent of his passes for 1,766 yards, 14 touchdowns and 1 interception. Marvin Mims and Brayden Willis have combined for 878 receiving yards and 8 touchdowns, while Jalil Farooq has 20 receptions. The Oklahoma Sooners ground game is averaging 217.5 yards per contest, and Eric Gray leads the way with 796 yards and 6 touchdowns. Defensively, Oklahoma is allowing 28.8 points and 438 yards per game. David Ugwoegbu leads the Oklahoma Sooners with 68 tackles, Reggie Grimes has 4 sacks and C.J. Coldon has 2 interceptions.

The Bears are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games and 15-6 ATS in their last 21 games overall. The Sooners are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 5-0 in Bears last 5 games overall. The under is 6-2 in Sooners last 8 games in November. The Bears are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 meetings in Oklahoma and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings. The home team is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 meetings.

The Baylor Bears may be getting their act together based on these last couple of weeks, but I can’t ignore their 3 losses in their biggest games of the season. Baylor has been disappointing for the most part, and I’m not sure which team is showing up from week to week. I’m not sure the Oklahoma Sooners are much better, especially with their defense that gets gashed more times than not. With that said, Oklahoma is at home, has the offense to give Baylor trouble, and we’re not being asked to lay much. Give me the Sooners by a touchdown.
