Big Twelve predictions  (last week 4-1, Season 27-12)


Oklahoma 31 and Texas 27 in Dallas-Sooners big plays and Kyler Murray and his supporting cast will be too much for Texas. Look for the Horns to work at long drives and hope that OU turns it over.  This should be a close game but if OU gets hot early Texas will have to respond with plenty of scoring too. OU will get their 30 points but UT needs to get into the 30’s also.  OU has Murray and he is the difference.



Oklahoma State 34 and Iowa State 31-Do not sell the Cyclones short but the Pokes will want to play well at home as of their last appearance in Stillwater.  I like OSU as they have the better overall team.



West Virginia 48 and Kansas 14-Blowout city.  West Virginia will crush KU.



Baylor 29 and Kansas State 27-Baylor will show much improvement as KSU is still having problems scoring.  A minor upset and BU continues to get better.
