Oklahoma Sooners Football: A Baylor Beatdown (and Pre-Game Final Thoughts)

The bad apples from Waco head to Norman for a football lesson from the good guys. Plus game picks

Let me preface by saying I believe hate of any type is quite unhealthy…except when it comes to sports. So, I feel we’re all on the same wavelength when I say I HATE BAYLOR FOOTBALL.

The over/under is 80 with the line favoring OU by 17 for this potential shootout in Soonerland. The spread may seem a bit high but after running backs D'Onta Foreman and Kyle Hicks took turns shredding the Bears’ run defense, which ranks 101st nationally, then it’s only fitting the nation’s best backfield duo (even with a less-than-100% Samaje Perine) deals the biggest deathblow. The Sooners return starters and boast newfound depth and experience on defense and should stifle the Bears’ potent but stoppable rushing attack without Shock Linwood. I have no doubt Bob (and hopefully Mike) will have his guys ready to play for this rooster kickoff against the bad guys of college football and bring home Coach Stoops’ 100th win in Norman.

You had a nice little run, Baylor. But it’s time for the big boys of the game to run you off the field — and hopefully out of relevance for years. I hope you wear your shiny helmets tomorrow so aliens can see the shellacking you’re about to receive in Norman.

Sooners 49, Wackos 31. Boomer.

Game Picks

Week 11 rivals Week 2 for lamest schedule ever. But here goes...

(10) Penn State @ Indiana

We go from Baylor to Penn State for my next game pick. I feel gross. There’s a chance here for the upset. Go Hoosiers. Unfortunately, Penn State hangs on for the win in Bloomington, 23-17.

(16) WVU @ Texas

Charlie’s got his ‘horns peaking at the right time and favored at home by 2 over a ranked Mountaineer team that must avoid looking ahead to next week and a possible GameDay home showdown against OU. The ‘horns stock is up and Dana’s bunch heads to Austin at the wrong time of the year. Texas rides D’Onta Foreman, the nation’s second-leading rusher, to a third-straight win — 31-28 — in Austin.

Texas Tech @ (13) Oklahoma State

Pokes keep rollin’. Mikey Mullet over Coach DudeBro, 45-35, in Stillwater.

Ole Miss @ (8) Texas A&M

Tough way for Trevor Knight to finish his college career with the season-ending shoulder injury suffered last week. Ole Miss is without Chad Kelly for the remainder of the season, as well. Aggies – 34, Rebels – 20.

(20) USC @ (4) Washington

Seattle hosts GameDay for what should be the most exciting game on an otherwise dull Week 11 slate. The Trojans have been playing really well behind redshirt freshman QB Sam Darnold and are likely the last big hurdle for the Huskies this season. But Jake Browning is also a pretty good quarterback, and Petersen’s teams don’t blow winnable games too often. This year is no exception. Huskies win a good one at home, 38-35.
