Big 12 football predictions - Week 10

kansas state football

Good morning Big 12 fans. Another Saturday is upon us again and that means it's time for more Big 12 football. Let's just jump right into the predictions. West Virginia vs. #22 Texas I fully expect Texas to not poop the bed and lose to West Virginia. I expect it to come off the high of winning against the best shot the Big 12 had at making the College Football Playoff this year and win this crucial game against the Mountaineers. Anything less and we can start laughing at the Longhorns again, right? Prediction: Texas wins Kansas vs. #19 Oklahoma Again no surprises here, I expect (and hope) the Sooners come off the win and dismantle the Jayhawk defense. If the Jayhawks should win this

Oklahoma football: Sooners win big in Lubbock

oklahoma football

This was by far the best game Oklahoma football played all year. The Sooners went into Lubbock on Halloween night and rolled past the Texas Tech Red Raiders with ease. Oklahoma won 62-28 and dominated all on sides of the ball. It's no surprise the addition of Ronnie Perkins and Rhamondre Stevenson helped on both sides. Perkins had three solo tackles, two for a loss and made his presence known on the line that Oklahoma controlled all night. Offensively, Stevenson had 13 carries for 87 yards and three touchdowns, opening up the run game the Sooners have tried all season to get going. Oklahoma was aggressive and finally completed the big plays that helped it run away with the game early.

The Big Ten is back and dominates the Week 8 slate of games with several high profile matchups. The Big 12 also has a few big games to keep an eye on, but football fans across the country will have their first taste of normal when it comes to college football in 2020.

That leaves the door open for highly touted recruit Graham Mertz

College Football: NFL Draft prospects to watch week 8

The slate of games is not as strong last week, but there are plenty of top prospects taking the field on week 8. Here's a look at players to keep an eye on as these games unfold. Illinois vs. Wisconsin Josh Imatorbhebhe, WR – Illinois Isaiahh Loudermilk, IDL – Wisconsin Josh Imatorbhebhe does not get the looks of some the big-name receivers in the Big Ten, but he should as a true No. 1 for an Illinois team on the rise. Imatorbhebhe is aggressive and physical at the catch point often outmuscling defensive backs at the top of his routes to generate separation and win in contested catch situations. He lacks a second gear and will need to continue to improve his route running

Hey hey hey! It's that time of the year again. The day that most Oklahomans and Texans look forward to and plan their whole day around. It's the Red River Shootout! The most exciting rivalry in football and it's at 11 a.m. here in CST because why wouldn't it be? Other than that, we got two more games of Big 12 football to predict here so lets get to it! #22 Texas Longhorns vs. Oklahoma You could argue that because Oklahoma has lost the last two and Texas has come away with very close wins that should've been losses, that this is a toss up game. And you're absolutely right, very intuitive reader! I have no clue who should win each of

Big 12 football predictions - Week 5

WOW. What a week last week was! I predicted an upset but not the one that happened. Plus the new generation of Texas Tech fans got to experience their first heartbreak. Hopefully this week is another jam-packed week of classic Big 12 football and we get more exciting and classic games. TCU vs. #9 Texas The Longhorns have momentum after surviving their battle in Lubbock, Texas, so expect them to go on a little run here. How long will this momentum last? That I couldn't tell you. I could see the Longhorns possibly heading to the Big 12 Championship game, but you never know in this conference. Does TCU pull the upset? It can if it plays really well, which isn't that

Kansas State football will enter its matchup against the Texas Tech Red Raiders with a 1-1 record. K-State dropped its opener at home against Arkansas State but rebounded to upset then-No. 3 Oklahoma on Sept. 26. The win in Norman marked the program’s first ever road win over a team ranked in the top three of the AP Poll. Kansas State will look to continue the momentum from the upset with a win against Texas Tech. The Red Raiders narrowly escaped against Houston Baptist in the opener and blew a 15-point lead during the final three minutes in an overtime loss against Texas last week. Here are three keys for K-State to take down Texas Tech on Saturday. Skylar Thompson plays well Sure, football
