College Football Week 14: #24 Oklahoma State At Baylor

Texas Tech v Oklahoma State Kansas State v Baylor

Oklahoma State

Baylor

In the first overtime game ever in Bedlam, the Cowboys came out on the wrong side, losing to Oklahoma 51-48. A trip to Waco could mean another shootout for Mike Gundy’s team. Coaching Baylor became bowl eligible with an overtime win over Texas Tech last week. The Bears will try to bookend their regular season with three-game winning streaks.
Clint Chelf threw for 253 yards, ran for 63, and had a 36-yard reception last week. The Cowboys have the No. 1 offense as far as yards per play. Offense The Bears racked up 674 yards of offense last week, gashing Texas Tech on the ground and through the air.
Oklahoma State’s D has been inconsistent, which is to be expected in the offense-heavy Big 12. Against Baylor, the Cowboys need to find a way to force some turnovers, something they’ve struggled to do all season. Defense Aside from the unbelievable performance against Kansas State, this unit has been really bad. The Bears are going to have a tough down slowing down Oklahoma State.
The Cowboys allowed a long punt return touchdown last week. Their special teams ranks 17th according to Football Outsiders. Special Teams The Bears’ special teams have been bad, particularly their kickoff coverage.

The winner is

Texas Tech v Oklahoma State
Oklahoma State
4 out of 4

We know there are going to be a lot of points—the over/under is a whopping 87—and, when the dust settles, Oklahoma State figures to have more.
