  • Time: Saturday, November 21, 2015 7:30 PM ET
  • Place: Boone Pickens Stadium
  • Line: Even Money
  • Total: 78 points

The road will get even tougher for the Baylor Bears after last week’s loss to the Oklahoma Sooners by a score of 44-34. Freshman quarterback Jarrett Stidman showed some chinks in his armor, throwing two interceptions in that game. This might force the Bears to have to go to their running game, rather than relying on Stidman to be successful in passing the ball against the third-ranked Cowboys passing defense, that is also second in interceptions.

Now, Baylor is still a very powerful offensive team and as other teams can attest to, they can light up the scoreboard in a snap and put the Cowboys’ defense in major trouble.

As for the Oklahoma State Cowboys, they also find themselves between a rock and a hard place and cannot afford to lose a game this late in the season if they hope to win a national championship. Despite having a perfect record, they struggled in their last game against Iowa State and barely came out with the 35-31 win. In fact, the Cowboys trailed much of the game and were down by 10 at the beginning of the second half; and, it was only due to the abilities of quarterbacks Mason Rudolf and J.W. Walsh that they were able to come-from-behind to win the game with a pair a touchdowns.

The Cowboys also need to step up their defense if they hope to stop the high-octane Baylor offense, that leads the nation in points and total offense per game.
