Baylor faces Oklahoma on Saturday, December 5th at Memorial Stadium for an NCAA football matchup.
Baylor is coming off a 32-31 win over Kansas State in Week 13 at home. Baylor is now 2-5 on the year and in Big 12 play this season. Baylor snapped its dreadful five-game losing streak with the win over Kansas State, a losing streak that included an overtime loss, a one-point loss, and a one-score loss as well. Baylor scores 27.6 points per game and earns only 335.4 total yards of offense per contest as well. Baylor has not been able to run the ball at all this season, as the team only averages 102.6 rushing yards per contest. Baylor allows 27.7 points per game and concedes 367.7 yards of offense to its opposition so far this season. Baylor has been great against the pass this season, only allowing 183.9 passing yards per game. Baylor will look to upset Oklahoma on the road, which will be no easy task.
Oklahoma did not play in Week 13, as its last game was Bedlam against Oklahoma State. Oklahoma defeated Oklahoma State easily in that game by the final score of 41-13. Oklahoma is now 6-2 on the year and 5-2 in conference play this season. The Sooners are ranked #11 in the nation in the AP polls. Oklahoma scores 45.5 points per game and earns 512.1 total yards of offense per contest as well. The Oklahoma offense has taken a big step in the right direction in the past five weeks, which were all wins for Oklahoma as well. Oklahoma allows 23.0 points per game and concedes 326.6 yards of offense to its opposition, as the defense has been successful recently as well. If Oklahoma played as it has in recent weeks for the entire season, we would be discussing which spot in the college football playoff it would be in. Unfortunately, those are thoughts of the past, and Oklahoma is now playing for a better bowl game.
Oklahoma opens as a 23-point favorite and the total is set at 62.5. I am going to take Oklahoma and lay the points at home. I think the Sooners are on a roll and will be able to win this game by at least four touchdowns.
