Predicting the 2015 season: Week 11

Over the next two weeks, we're making predictions for all 75 Big 12 games of the season. We continue our predictions for the entire season with Week 11:

Baylor 34, Oklahoma 17: For the third season in a row, Baylor holds the Sooners under 20 points and rolls in a must-win game for its pursuit of the conference crown. Oklahoma's defense unravels in the second half after allowing long TDs to KD Cannon and Chris Platt to break open a 17-17 game. The Bears ace their second major test of November.

Oklahoma State 42, Iowa State 21: The Pokes win back-to-back conference games for the first time all season by stomping the Cyclones in Ames. Mason Rudolph is on fire after his upset win against TCU, throwing for 350 yards and three scores and rushing for another. Chris Carson goes over the 100-yard mark once again, and Iowa State simply has too few answers on defense.

TCU 38, Kansas 10: Fresh off their loss to Oklahoma State, the Horned Frogs are fortunate to have an easy bounce-back week. Trevone Boykin gets back on track with four total TDs. After Mike Freeze has a pick-six against the Jayhawks to extend the lead to 35-0, coach Gary Patterson pulls his starters midway through the third quarter and keeps everyone fresh. Oklahoma is up next in what's practically an elimination game for the Big 12 title.

Kansas State 37, Texas Tech 27: The Wildcats extend their streak over Tech to five in a row with a surprise rally in the second half. Full of confidence after playing Baylor so close, K-State gets down 17-0 and still bounces back in a big way, led by a 100-yard performance from Charles Jones and his two TDs out of the Wildcat formation.

West Virginia 34, Texas 31 (OT): The Longhorns endure another nail-biter in Morgantown and come up short when Nick Rose misses from 38 yards in overtime. His miss gives Josh Lambert a chance to be the hero once again. The junior's 25-yard boot is good, and the Mountaineers are one win away from going bowling.
