Friday Locks Season Results
TCU (-7) at Texas Tech – I don’t see the Horned Frogs struggling very much against the Red Raiders this weekend.. TCU will be looking to bounce back after a loss. Their defense should lead them to a solid victory in Lubbock.
ISU (-9.5) at Baylor – The Cyclones came into the college football spotlight a few weeks ago, but have since then lost a couple tough games. I think they will respond in a big way against the Bears. I see a huge win coming for Iowa State this weekend.
OU (-37) at Kansas – I just can’t stop picking the Sooners. I hate the large spread, but I think Oklahoma is peaking as a team at the perfect time and will likely cover. The Sooners will roll all over the Jayhawks on Saturday.
TCU (-7) at Texas Tech – Granted this game is typically close but the Horned Frogs have Oklahoma State breathing down their neck for a spot in the Big 12 championship game. Even with the rash of injuries I expect TCU to be at least ten points better in this one.
Iowa State (-9.5) at Baylor – I feel like the Bears are losing some of their fight and the Cyclones are still swinging away. Losses over the last two weeks have seen ISU lost control of their grip on the Big 12 but they still have a shot at an 8-win season.
Oklahoma State (-20) vs. Kansas State – Way too much firepower on the Oklahoma State sideline in this one. The Wildcats are strong on the ground and like to control the ball but this will move to a comfortable lead in the second have for OSU.

TCU (-7) at Texas Tech – The Horned Frogs still have quite a bit to play for including a Big 12 Championship. With a defensive mind like Gary Patterson running the show, it’s hard to imagine a slip up with two weeks remaining in the regular season. Motivated and ready for action, I’ll take TCU every day of the week at seven points.
OSU (-20) vs Kansas State – Much like above, the Cowboys have a chance to escape the Alamo Bowl but they’ll need a bit of help. Of course, winning their own games must be the first priority. With a potent offense and a 20 point spread, it’s an easy task taking OSU this week. Can KSU keep up is the real question here.
WVU (-3) vs Texas – The Mountaineers have played tight games all season long coming out ahead more often than not. While the Longhorns possess a better defense, it shouldn’t derail WVU from a three point victory…at least.
WVU (-3) vs. Texas – The Mountaineers are the outright better team, and this game is in Morgantown. That alone makes this at least a touchdown game in my mind. They should handle the Longhorns just fine.
ISU (-9.5) at Baylor – The Cyclones have dropped two games in a row, but they’re still a solid team this year. I don’t care that they’re playing in Waco, Iowa State should win this game by at least a couple touchdowns.
OU (-37) at Kansas – The Sooners feel slighted by the College Football Playoff committee after being ranked fourth despite a dominant win over TCU, so I would expect nothing less from Oklahoma than to try to win this game by somewhere in the realm of 50 points.
