2003 season, week 11

Journal-World sports editor Chuck Woodling was perfect in this week's Wanna Whack Woodling contest, picking the correct winner in all five of Saturday's Big 12 Conference football games.

Woodling wasn't the only one who prognosticated properly, though, as 38 participants also had perfect records. Kyle Martin of Fort Worth, Texas, won the contest, with a prediction of Texas A&M beating KU, 45-24.

Martin, who will receive a We Whacked Woodling T-shirt for his victory, is the second straight Texan to win the contest, after Kent Gaylor of Lucas, Texas, last week.

Make your picks below, and make sure to include your full name and contact info. Remember, one entry per person.

Oklahoma 33, Texas A&M 20 — Sooners bound to be flat following Bedlam Series bashing of Oklahoma State, but Aggies don't have enough defense to deter Sooners from making their appointed rounds in New Orleans later this year.

Colorado 51, Missouri 41 — Buffaloes have only one win in last seven weeks — that 50-47 OT decision over Kansas — but Missouri plays like Tarzan in Columbia and like Jane on road, and this one is in Boulder.

Kansas State 33, Iowa State 22 — Wildcats could be caught looking ahead to showdown with Nebraska, but Iowa State is too feeble to force the issue. Offensively-challenged Cyclones have dropped six straight after starting season 2-0.

Texas Tech 59, Baylor 29 — Red Raiders quarterback B.J. Symons was off-limits to media this week after throwing five interceptions against Colorado. Baylor, meanwhile, has been off-limits to the win column for a month.

Oklahoma State 27, Texas 16 — With this one in Stillwater, Cowboys won't have any trouble refocusing after lopsided loss to Sooners. Longhorns unbeaten on road, but Baylor, Iowa State and Rice aren't exactly murderer's row.

Nebraska 42, Kansas 25 — Hard to believe Kansas once knocked off the Colonels of Kernel two years in a row. Of course, that was in 1967 and 1968, and didn't they wear leather helmets and run the single-wing in those days? Telltale stat: Nebraska has 35 takeaways this season. Kansas has 13.

(The contest is currently closed. Good luck to all who entered.)
