All times CST
1. Okie St at TCU (6:00p.m.) * (At-risk game)
In theory, TCU’s best and last chance to avoid the big goose egg in league play. And it would be in REALity had Marcus Smart been suspended for five games.
2. Oklahoma at Kansas (8:00p.m.) *** *(Projected W: KU)
Oklahoma thoroughly trounced K-State Saturday at Norman. As we all know, however, the Road is different. Ask Texas.
3. K-State at Texas Tech (6:00p.m.) ***1/2 (At-risk game)
K-State has won but one Road game in league play. The same one everyone wins. Tech isn’t TCU. The Cats will be in a dogfight.
4. West Virginia at Iowa St (7:00p.m.)***1/2 (Projected W: ISU)
Another in the string of many PIB (Payback Is a Bitch) games in Big 12 play this seaason.
5. Baylor at Texas (8:00p.m.) **** (Projected W: KU)
Texas defeated Baylor handily in Waco. With the REAL Standings’ philosophy about the difference in Home and Road games, this one should be easy pickin’s for UT, right?
Maybe. Maybe not. The Bears will come to play, in large part because they did not in Waco. At the very least, don’t give the points.
