Journal-World sports editor Chuck Woodling rebounded from last week's 3-3 record in KUsports.com's Wanna Whack Woodling? contest with a 5-1 record this week.
Woodling missed just Texas A&M's victory over Oklahoma State, but that error allowed 51 participants to beat him with perfect 6-0 records. One hundred forty-three entries tied Woodling's 5-1 mark.
Chad Dick of Baldwin won last week's contest, winning the tiebreaker with a predicted score of Texas 24, Missouri 20, just four points off the actual final score. Dick will receive a KUsports.com T-shirt for his victory.

Texas A&M 29, Colorado 11 — Big 12's worst pass defense against league's second-best passing offense means Buffaloes will continue to sink slowly into the North Division sunset. Another impressive outing for Aggies' QB Reggie McNeal.
Kansas State 16, Nebraska 9 — Who would have believed before the season this game would not be televised? Cornhuskers competitive at home, but Wildcats should feast on Team Turnover in Manhattan.
Baylor 22, Iowa State 19 — Buffoonish Bears traditionally win one conference game every year in Waco, Texas. This is it. Only 10 NCAA Division I-A schools have scored fewer points than offense-challenged Cyclones. ISU's Stevie Hicks only starting running back in Big 12 who hasn't scored a touchdown.
Missouri 20, Oklahoma State 18 — Cowboys smarting from first loss of season to A&M last Saturday, but Missouri leads league in fewest yards allowed and Tigers have more balanced attack than run-oriented 'Pokes.
Texas Tech 66, Texas 43 — Yippie-aye-oh-ki-ya. This shootout will last longer than a Yankees-Red Sox game. Tech's Sonny Cumbie, nation's leading passer, outshines Cedric Benson, nation's leading rusher.
Oklahoma 30, Kansas 12 — Jayhawks can't match No. 2-ranked Sooners in personnel, but a week of rest should at least enable Kansas to beat the 27-point spread, regardless of whether Adam Barmann or Jason Swanson plays quarterback.
