The Oklahoma State Cowboys are off to a great start, and they're one of the best offenses in the country, but we're going to learn about them in this spot. OK State hasn't played anybody yet and now goes up against a proven and battle tested Baylor side. The Baylor Bears have held their own on the road twice against quality teams and have shown more balance in terms of their defense. I'll lay the small chalk with Baylor at home.
