Week 8 of the Big XII



Big 12 championship trophy stock
Another big Saturday of Big 12 football awaits and there are a few must watch games. Let’s take a look
                    Iowa State 4-2 (2-1) @ Texas Tech 4-2(1-2) 12:00 PM ET FS1
These 2 teams are probably the most overlooked in the Big 12. Who expected Iowa State to start 4-2 including a road win vs Oklahoma? Texas Tech has also opened some eyes with wins @ Houston, Arizona State, and road big 12 win vs Kansas. Last saturday, Texas Tech traveled to hostile Morgantown and for a while, had WVU beat, until the miraculous 29 unanswered points scored by the Mountaineers broke the hearts of Red Raiders and knocked them out of the Top 25. The Cyclones are coming off a head turning 45-0 shut-out win vs Kansas and still have a great amount of momentum.  Both these teams are extremely underrated, and this game will be a fun one.
My Pick: Iowa St 30 TTU 36
  10 Oklahoma State 5-1 (2-1) @ Texas 3-3 (2-1) 12:00 PM ET ABC
Many people aren’t paying attention to this game, but i’m here to say that you should. Texas has seemed to improve each week. They had Oklahoma down to the last 7 minutes, until a defensive break-down left OU tight end Mark Andrews wide open for 59 yard TD changed everything. Oklahoma State has one of the best offenses in the country, so it will be tough for the Longhorn defense to slow down.  It has the potential to  be a barn burner in Austin.
My Pick: Ok State 41 UT 37
Those games are the eye catchers of the big 12 this weekend. There are 2 other Big 12 games:
9 Oklahoma 5-1 (2-1) @ K State 3-3 (1-2)
23 West Virginia 4-2 (2-1) @ Baylor 0-6 (0-3)
Its going to be a full, fun day of Big 12 football!
