Sooners defense falters again; Big Twelve predictions and rankings for the week……

The Big Twelve has been jolted with the 2nd loss by Oklahoma last week in Ames.  Oklahoma State, Kansas State, and Iowa State look like the cream of the league, all supporting perfect two and zero records.  With the Sooners, now zero and two, another loss and this season is lost for any championships.  Texas, another favorite in 2020, was upset by TCU in Austin.  The Horns are, again, not back.  Oklahoma and Texas this Saturday will be the end of one of these two teams for the season.

This weeks games:



Texas and Oklahoma and it should be a nail biter.  Look for OU quarterback Spencer Rattler and Texas’s signal caller Sam Ehlinger to both be on target and the red-shirt freshman gets it done this week  Sooner pass over UT 49 to 48.



Iowa State holds serve with a win over Texas Tech. Final in Ames, Cyclones 41 and Tech 28.



TCU hosts Kansas State and I like the Toad over the Cats.  Max Duggan, the Frog qb,  has a big game and look for a representative score of TCU 29 and Kansas State 24.
