Shane’s Free Pick
Baylor looked quite impressive against Texas, and even if George isn’t able to go in this game, they are going to find a ton of success. I’m not sold on this Oklahoma State offense, and in the last game the Cowboys defense gave up 73 points. Baylor is going to run up the score and they will cover the spread.
