The Big 12 Report: Week 8

November 23rd, 2022

Another week has passed and Texas has continued to impress as the #2 team in the nation and a legit contender for the BCS Bowl game to play USC, but dates with Texas Tech and Texas A&M loom large on the schedule. The Longhorns get Tech at home this week in what should be a high scoring game, and laying 16 points in that one. If there is less than 80 points scored I would be surprised, and this is the first spread offense Texas has really faced and Tech comes in here unbeaten with little respect as far as the oddsmakers are concerned. It should be a wild one in Austin on Saturday.

Elsewhere Oklahoma continues to struggle, but covered the number against Kansas, one of our Winning Picks last week in the Big 12, as we stand at 6-3 ATS on season with Big 12 Plays. Here are my takes on some key games this week in this conference. Iowa State continues their downward spiral with 3 straight losses and it looks like the Nebraska and Missouri game will be crucial this Saturday for the North race, along with Colorado who has Kansas at home this week. It is getting interesting in the North, the south division is all but decided after Saturday.

Baylor @ Oklahoma (-14)

Other than beating up on Kansas St in Norman, the Sooners have been less than stellar at home this season, and less than stellar overall, as it is a down year for OU as they struggle on offense with a freshman QB in Rhett Bomar. Baylor gave Nebraska all they wanted, but Nebraska has a great defense this season and already had seen the spread attack a week earlier from Texas Tech, so they adjusted nicely, something I do not think the young and inexperienced secondary of Oklahoma can do here completely, however I do not see Baylor getting a win here, but I do see them keeping it closer than 2 TD’s with their offense. The offense’s are even in point production here, and Baylor’s defense is only allowing 16 ppg. OU gets the win by 12.
