The Sooners were off this weekend, they will open Big 12 play at home Saturday against Kansas State.

Tylan Wallace had four receptions for 94 yards.
For not playing a game, the Bears had an eventful week. After canceling week one’s game against Louisiana Tech, Baylor was able to schedule a last-minute game against Houston for Saturday.
