Missouri -20 @ Baylor

While Baylor QB Griffin continues to impress for Baylor, they really have nothing in the tank in terms of support around him or a defense that can slow the Mizzou attack. While they have played tough in most games this year and gave Nebraska a game last week in Lincoln for awhile, the lack of depth for the Bears is substantial.

Mizzou on the other hand took care of Colorado, a better team than Baylor by 58 points last week allowing no points for the Buffs throwing spread attack. Look for Mizzou to continue to roll this week as they still have their ears pinned back and are clearly focused on a Big 12 north title and getting a second chance at a South Division opponent. There will be NO letdown for Mizzou. Mizzou 48 Baylor 17.

Texas -6 @ Texas Tech

Out on a limb here, but after I witnessed what Texas Tech did to Kansas and Texas having back to back to back games with OU, Mizzou and Oklahoma State, this is a tough spot for Texas. I will say this, if Texas wins this game, just give them a national title, no one in the USA has a tougher schedule the past 4 weeks including any SEC team. That being said I am going with the Longhorns to win here, who have beaten every foe they have faced including a team that is is explosive on the ground and through the air in Oklahoma State.

The Cowboys had massive run yards against Texas and they still pulled it out, and I think the front 4 of Texas's defensive line will get to Red Raider QB Harrell this week and make a difference. That is KEY in this game, Texas can rush the passer with success with just their front four, thus having great coverage downfield. Two of the best QB's in the Big 12 clash here and I think the battle tested Colt McCoy wins the battle in a squeaker in Lubbock. It is not impossible to Texas Tech to win this guys, but got to give the Longhorns the benefit of the doubt, they are real good! Texas wins but fails to cover. Texas 41 Texas Tech 38, grab the points.

Oklahoma -21 vs.. Nebraska

Not the rivalry of old here by any stretch of the imagination, and Nebraska DOES NOT match up well against Oklahoma. There is NO WAY Nebraska can trade punches on offense, and I doubt Nebraska's non-existent pass rush can perform well enough to contain the the no huddle attack and QB Bradford for 4 quarters on the road. Bo Pellini spent a year with Bob Stoops at OU after Nebraska fired him in 2003, and they are friends, but I doubt with BCS points and margin of wins now becoming a factor for OU, that the Sooners lay down for the Huskers, who have improved their play but against the likes of Baylor and Iowa State. I do not put much stock into a near upset at Texas Tech 3 weeks ago for my beloved Huskers, OU is flat out a better team in this game and should name the score unless they fail to show up, and I doubt that happens. There are better days on the horizon for the Husker nation, but not here. Oklahoma 41 Nebraska 14

Tony George is RED HOT in football. A 7-3 run in the NFL, off a 6-2 weekend overall, and his Big 12 Game of the Month goes Saturday so be sure to watch for it at !
