Lots of football today, TCU not included (we did our work early), but no reason we can't hang out and watch!

And, just for kicks, here are some picks our guys had for the days games.

Hawkeyed Frog

Oklahoma State 31, Oklahoma 21
The Sooners fall behind early and this time can't come back, as Randle runs for 150+ and keeps the ball away from OU late. Cowboys give K-State at least a share of the Big 12 title in their bye week.

Texas Tech 42, Baylor 37
Baylor is going to come out feeling like they're the best team on the planet after Bayloring up K-State's national championship shot. Despite being on the downswing, Tech catches a flat Baylor early and picks the Bear secondary apart all game. The Bears come back again and again, but never pull within three as Tech wins and keeps the Bears out of a bowl bid.

West Virginia 50, Iowa State 33
The Cyclones are glad they locked up their bowl bid against Kansas, because they don't have an answer for Tavon Austin running the ball. Iowa State slides into Pinstripe bowl position, while West Virginia is just happy to lock up a bowl bid at this point.

Trey Fallon

Texas Tech 38, Baylor 30
Baylor suffers a let down after their big win over Kansas State. The Tech defense does just enough to pull out the win. Baylor's chances of becoming bowl eligible are slowly slipping away.


Oklahoma State 30, Oklahoma 34
I think this game will be close the entire way. I give the slight edge to the Sooners because they are playing at home.
