Chris’ Pick

I’m rolling with Baylor here. This Bears team just looks rejuvenated to me with Blake Shapen back under center, and I think the Bears can get one back at home here after consecutive home losses to Texas Tech and Texas. Iowa State has had their ups and downs, but they’re still not a team I’ve had much high hopes for this season and I just trust this Baylor offense with Shapen more than I do Iowa State, who are more than capable of shutting down offensively and I just think we’re getting points with the better team. Give me Baylor and the points in a game I think they can win outright.
