Previewing Saturday's Big 12 Action

The entire conference will see action today.

Oklahoma at Nebraska 12:30pm CT ESPN 360

I think Sam Bradford will be able to bounce back and throw for 3 TDs against a venerable Husker D, anchored by Ndamukong Suh.  Suh will get his licks, but in the end Oklahoma's O is just too powerful.

What's that you say? Basketball? Oh hell...

Oklahoma St at Mizzou 1pm CT ESPN

I have a friend who lived on Stillwater Dr in Columbia, MO, so he should know best about this game.  He thinks Mizzou will win. Done and done.

(24) Baylor at (6) Texas 3pm CT ESPN 360

Another in a series of marquis match-ups in conference today.  If this game was in Waco, I'd give the edge to the Bears, as Texas has struggled mightily since the beginning of the calendar year. But the game is in Austin and the folks on 6th Street will be rocking after UT takes down their in-state rival.

(2) Kansas at (11) Kansas St 6pm CT ESPN

College Gameday will be broadcasting live from Manhattan and the fans will be pumped as K-State welcomes in their in-state rivals. If K-State can play as well as they did at home vs Texas, they have a shot. If they play as poorly as they did at home against Oklahoma St they don't.

KU is too strong right now and knows they will be #1 with a W. The fans in the Little Apple go home unhappy as KU wins by 8-10.

Texas Tech at Texas A&M 8pm CT FSNSW

This is one of the top 6 games in conference tonight as Tech and A&M battle for the right to claim the title of "Third Best in the State." A&M stakes the claim as Donald Sloan wins the game on a last second shot.

Colorado at Iowa St 8pm CT ESPN 360

If you're Colorado you have circled this week on your calendar since schedules were announced. First a home game vs Nebraska last Wednesday then at Iowa St. tonight.  If CU were to ever go on a conference winning streak, it would be now. However CU is riding a 29-game conference road losing streak, that dates back to January 21, 2006 (OVER FOUR YEARS).  Marquis Gilstrap and Craig Brackins will be too much to handle for the Buffs, who are improving, but not below the mile high air of Coors Events Center.
