Oklahoma 27, Kansas State 23 — Sooners favored by nearly three touchdowns, but Wildcats will make it close. K-State's Darren Sproles will outshine OU super freshman Adrian Peterson, but Sooners have edge at QB with Heisman Trophy incumbent Jason White.
Colorado 7, Iowa State 3 — Buffaloes going with James Cox at QB, hoping he has more success than the James Cox who lost 1920 Presidential election to Warren G. Harding. Iowa State can't score against tall grass.
Nebraska 70, Baylor 10 — Just what barely breathing Baylor needed, Nebraska in Lincoln, Neb., following the worst loss in NU history. Cornhuskers ask no quarter and give no quarter, turning Bears into sacrificial lambs.
Texas 41, Missouri 20 — Tigers proved they could win on road last Saturday, but Texas isn't Baylor. Longhorns still smarting from shutout loss to Oklahoma and are likely to smash MU quarterback Brad Smith to smithereens.
Oklahoma State 33, Texas A&M 29 — This one is almost a wash. A&M averaging 429.6 yards a game; OSU 407.6. Each team surrendering 337.0 yards per game. Home field decisive factor. Score would be reversed if game was in College Station, Texas.
Toledo 60, Ohio 13 — Bonus pick with Kansas idle. Remember the Rockets? Toledo surrendered 63 points to both Minnesota and KU in its first two games, but Holys have won four straight since by averaging 50 points a game. Bobcats (3-3) can't be relishing this road trip.
