Sooner4OU Commentary: This should be an offensive shoot-out and an entertaining game. Given our players and schemes, I hope we utilize the no-huddle more than the last couple of games and score a bunch of points, given they have the number one offense in the land, it will be needed. My prediction is OU 45 – Baylor 38. What do you think?
Article Excerpt: The Oklahoma Sooners are set to host the Baylor Bears this weekend in Norman, looking to claim a seventh win on the season and move up from No. 12 in the BCS rankings back into the top 10.
OU (6-2, 4-1) is somewhat back on track after knocking off Iowa State behind QB Landry Jones’ four touchdown passes in Week 10. Baylor (4-4, 1-4) was able to get its first conference win against Kansas, far and away the doormat of the Big 12.
The two teams need a win for different reasons. Baylor is losing opportunities to become bowl eligible, and still has Kansas State, Texas Tech and Oklahoma State on its schedule.
Oklahoma is still in position for an outside shot at a BCS berth, but will need some help at the top of the rankings and needs to remain unbeaten the rest of the way.
