College Football Week 14: #24 Oklahoma State At Baylor

Oklahoma State
Baylor
Texas Tech v Oklahoma State
Kansas State v Baylor
Coaching
Winner 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.
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.
Offense
Winner 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.
The Bears racked up 674 yards of offense last week, gashing Texas Tech on the ground and through the air.
Defense
Winner 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.
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.
Special Teams
Winner The Cowboys allowed a long punt return touchdown last week. Their special teams ranks 17th according to Football Outsiders.
The Bears’ special teams have been bad, particularly their kickoff coverage.

The Winner Is

Texas Tech v Oklahoma State
Winner 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.
