Texas Tech (-17.5) at Kansas I think Texas Tech is a lot better than people think they are. Even though the Red Raiders are on the road I think they win big on Saturday. Kansas simply doesn’t have the offensive fire power to keep up.

Kansas State (+4) at Texas – I learned a long time ago not to doubt the wizard himself in Bill Snyder. The Longhorns have been playing well lately, but it won’t be enough to beat a top 5 team in the Big 12. I think the Wildcats come out with a win on Saturday.

West Virginia (+13) at TCU – This game will certainly be one of the most anticipated games on Saturday. Both of these teams have been impressive so far this season. I think TCU comes out with a win, but I don’t see it being by more than a touchdown.


Kansas (+17.5) vs. Texas Tech – We pretty much know what we’ve got in Kansas but then again, we also know what we have in Texas Tech. The Red Raiders are still struggling on defense and the Jayhawks are improved on offense. I think KU stays within 10 on this one, so I’ll keep the 17.5 points.

West Virginia (+13) at TCU – I’ve been back and forth on this one. I can see it getting out of hand and the Frogs running away with it. I can also see TCU winning by a late field goal. I think I’m going to go with the latter, which means I like West Virginia with those thirteen points.

Texas (+4) vs. Kansas State – I think the point spread is spot on here which makes me lean towards the home team. The over/under on this game is 49.5 and I think I’d take the under as well.


Texas (-4) vs Kansas State – on the podcast I initially took KSU. However I’m rethinking that call after taking a closer look. The Longhorns defense has been impressive. It’s the offensive line that has suffered leading to dismal performances on that side of the ball. Needless to say, the Wildcat offense is also struggling. If I’m banking on the defenses then, I’ve got to go with Texas in this one.

Kansas (+17.5) vs Texas Tech – Traditionally, the Jayhawks have played in this match up extremely well. Couple that with the Red Raiders coming off an emotional loss and I’m taking the point all day long.

TCU (-13) vs West Virginia – Will Grier remains the xfactor this week. Possessing the ability to throw the long ball consistently, it could be a tight game. However the WVU defense doesn’t have what it takes to shut down TCU for four quarters. I think the Horned Frogs run away late.


Texas Tech (-17.5) at Kansas – The Jayhawks are bad, and the Red Raiders are going to be hungry after a close loss at home to the Cowboys this last weekend. I’ve got Tech by four touchdowns.

Texas vs. Kansas State (+4) – Is this real? I’ll take the Wildcats all day over the Longhorns. I don’t care if it is in Austin.

TCU vs. WVU (+13) – The Horned Frogs pull it out, but this one is closer than expected. The Mountaineers hang tough for three quarters before TCU wins by a touchdown.
