Last Week: 3-1
Big shakeup week in the Big 12 last week. Everything is completely out of wack. Iowa State winning is Norman is one of the most confounding things i’ve seen in my life. Texas Tech is ranked. TCU and Texas would be in the Big 12 title if it started today. Things simply don’t make sense anymore in this league and honestly six teams probably have an outside chance at winning this thing at this point. What a time to be a Big 12 fan (OU fans not included).
Kansas @ Iowa State (ISU -20.5)
Iowa fucking State. After looking insanely blah against Texas, turns out all this team needed was an iron man quarterback-linebacker, a solid backup and a shitty secondary to play against. They have another shitty secondary to torch this week. ISU, 35-17
#24 Texas Tech @ West Virginia (WVU -3.5)
High powered offenses and heavy drinkers collide! It’s a damn shame these two schools are so far away, because seeing Red Raiders in Morgantown would be a beautiful shitshow. The game will be a battle for #24 as Texas Tech hopes to hold on to their first Top 25 ranking in over four years. The ranking lives another day. Tech, 45-42
Baylor @ #14 Oklahoma State (OSU -25.5)
Baylor just can’t catch a break. I really do think they’ll get a game eventually, but not against a rested and reenergized Mason Rudolph and Oklahoma State. OSU, 56-13.
#6 TCU @ Kansas State (TCU -4.5)
The new team to beat in the Big 12 heads up north to face a trap game in Manhattan. This game will be a slugfest for TCU as Kansas State is a scrappy team that can sneak up on anyone in any week. I think the Frogs narrowly escape the Purple Bowl, but not without a serious scare from the Wildcats. TCU, 28-24
#12 Oklahoma vs Texas (OU -7.5)
I have no idea what to think of this Oklahoma team. On one hand, they play with a fire under their ass when they are doubted. On the other hand, they look flat out lazy against teams they think they should roll over and guess what? They got beat in the biggest point spread upset in school history.
So, what does the team do Monday? They go into their press conference and start talking about their goddamn playoff chances again! YOU JUST LOST TO IOWA STATE AND HAVE YOUR BIGGEST RIVAL TEXAS THIS WEEK. I know I made a pledge to be positive, but damn. The playoffs should be the farthest thing from their mind. Looking ahead is what got your dumbasses in this spot in the first place. Texas is a good team. Go out and beat Texas and i’ll pick the Sooners again. Prove this irrelevant and angry blogger wrong. Texas, 35-31
