Big 12 Predictions: Week 2

Come pick games with me!

Howdy! I’m starting a new thing this week that will run every Wednesday afternoon. I’ll pick each Big 12 game, and a few games from around the country, and encourage you to make picks as well.

I’ll track it all in a big spreadsheet and we’ll see who is good at #picks and who is bad at #picks throughout the season.

You can read my picks below, and you can make your picks for this week right here. Don’t forget to tell everyone who you picked in the comments, and let’s get this ball rolling (all picks are winners only, no spread).

Big 12 Games

Oklahoma State (1-0) vs. Tulsa (0-1)

Time/TV: 11:00am, FS1

Spencer Sanders is back for the Pokes, and Tulsa lost to UC Davis. This one won’t be close.

Jamie’s Pick: Oklahoma State 45, Tulsa 17

TCU (1-0) vs. Cal (0-1)

Time/TV: 2:30, ESPNU

Gary Patterson keeps saying that Cal is the best defense TCU will play all year, but their offense couldn’t score enough points to keep up with Nevada. Max Duggan shows off.

Jamie’s Pick: TCU 42, Cal 17

#9 Iowa State (1-0) vs. #10 Iowa (1-0)

Time/TV: 3:30pm, ABC

This is the biggest rivalry game in Cy-Hawk history, with both teams coming into the game ranked for the first time in the history of the matchup. This will be a close game, Iowa State fans are going to be crazy with Game Day there, but I’m not sure they’ll pull off the win.

Jamie’s Pick: Iowa 24, Iowa State 21

West Virginia (0-1) vs. Long Island (0-1)

Time/TV: 4:00pm, ESPN+

I didn’t know Long Island had football.

Jamie’s Pick: West Virginia 45, Long Island 3

Kansas State (1-0) vs. Southern Illinois (1-0)

Time/TV: 6:00pm, ESPN+

Kansas State beats a good Southern Illinois team, thanks to Deuce Vaughn.

Jamie’s Pick: Kansas State 35, Southern Illinois 21

#4 Oklahoma (1-0) vs. Western Carolina (0-1)

Time/TV: 6:00pm

Spencer Rattler threw a few bad interceptions against Tulane, but this game won’t be close.

Jamie’s Pick: Oklahoma 56, Western Carolina 9

#15 Texas (1-0) at Arkansas (1-0)

Time/TV: 6:00pm, ESPN

Is Texas Back? Will they beat their former/future conference rival? Probably, but WOO PIG.

Jamie’s Pick: Arkansas 28, Texas 24

Baylor (1-0) vs. Texas Southern (0-1)

Time/TV: 6:00pm, ESPN+

Baylor had a little 4th quarter trouble with Texas State, but that won’t be the case with Texas Southern.

Jamie’s Pick: Baylor 38, Texas Southern 10

Texas Tech (1-0) vs. S.F. Austin (1-0)

Time/TV: 6:00pm, ESPN+

Texas Tech gets to 2-0 without much difficulty.

Jamie’s Pick: Texas Tech 52, SFA 10

National Games

#3 Ohio State (1-0) vs. #12 Oregon (1-0)

Time/TV: 11:00am, FOX

Jamie’s Pick: Ohio State 42, Oregon 24

BYU (1-0) vs. #21 Utah (1-0)

Time/TV: 9:15pm, ESPN

Jamie’s Pick: BYU 27, Utah 17

Mississippi State (1-0) vs. N.C. State (1-0)

Time/TV: 6:00pm, ESPN2

Jamie’s Pick: N.C. State 35, Mississippi State 34

Michigan (1-0) vs. Washington (0-1)

Time/TV: 7:00pm, ABC

Jamie’s Pick: Michigan 28, Washington 10
