• Oklahoma State Lurking at Number Five
  • Rematch in the Big 12 Title Game
  • The Cowboys Looking for Playoff Chaos

In the first meeting between these two teams, now number five in the College Football Playoff (CFP) rankings Oklahoma State flexed its defensive muscles against Baylor, holding the Bears to 280 total yards in a 24-14 victory on the way to an 11-1 record. Since a 24-21 loss to Iowa State, Oklahoma State has been on a roll, winning five games in a row by an average of over 29 points.

Baylor is out of the running in the CFP, but they can play spoiler to Oklahoma State’s chances of making their first appearance in the playoff, with the Cowboys needing to win and hope that Georgia can knock Alabama out of contention or for Cincinnati to fail to impress the committee in their matchup with Houston.

Baylor Preview: Offense Needs to Show Up This Time

Baylor’s 33.4 points game-scoring average is deceiving, since it includes 66 points against FCS Texas Southern and 45 points in a win over a bad Kansas team, so the challenge facing the Bears is to generate some offense against an uncharacteristically strong Oklahoma State defense. The Bears haven’t put up more than 28 points in their last four games but it will probably take more than that to derail Oklahoma State’s playoff hopes.

Oklahoma State Preview: Stay the Course

Oklahoma State will need to recover quickly from an emotional 37-33 victory over arch-rival Oklahoma to prepare for a dangerous Baylor team that played the Cowboys tough in their

first meeting. The Cowboys have held three of their last five opponents without a touchdown and were somehow able to overcome a nightmare five minutes against Oklahoma where the Sooners turned a 24-17 deficit into a 33-24 advantage, only to have Oklahoma State rebound with a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns.
