I've noticed a few trends of late, and after this week, I'll be tallying my picks record for each team. I've got a hunch as to who will be high and who will be low, but it'll be interesting.
I'm behind last year's pace, and I'll need some bowl magic to get back into it, but I'm not counting on that happening.
On to this week's picks!
Last week: 3-1 (.750)
Overall: 54-18 (.750)
Off: Kansas, Missouri, Texas A&M, Texas Tech
No. 11 Kansas State 31, Iowa State 23: A reminder: When it comes to Farmageddon: finder's keepers. Hands off, Nebraska and Iowa. K-State gets a somewhat dramatic win in this one, yet again topping the plucky Cyclones. Collin Klein's not going to be stopped, though the Cyclones did as well as anyone stuffing Oklahoma's BellDozer last week. Klein is a different beast, and carries the Wildcats to their 10th win.
No. 17 Baylor 31, No. 22 Texas 27: It won't be easy for Robert Griffin III and the Bears against the best defense they've faced all season. Balance will be key, and Baylor will have just enough to knock off the Longhorns. Terrance Ganaway racks up 100 yards rushing, and RG3 does what RG3 does, even while Case McCoy has one of his best days of the season. Bears best the Longhorns for a second consecutive year.
No. 3 Oklahoma State 37, No. 10 Oklahoma 31: I picked Oklahoma State in this game last year, and got burned. This time around, though, I'm trying it again. I thought Oklahoma would win this game all year, but the stars have aligned for the Cowboys. Oklahoma isn't the same team since losing Ryan Broyles. OSU is the better team. It's the healthier team. It's the home team. They have more on the line. If they can't beat Oklahoma in this situation, when will they do it? More on this game later today in my Pick of the Week video.
