A full slate of Big 12 games. Further sorting in the Pac-12. A chance for Missouri to put a death grip on the SEC East.
Sure enough, the Missouri Tigers take on South Carolina, at home no less, with a chance to take a two-game lead, with tiebreakers, over the rest of the SEC East. Out west, Oregon takes on UCLA in a big Pac-12 matchup. For a rundown of the rest of the relevant national action, check out SB Nation's excellent viewing guide. For you degenerate gamblers, here are this week's picks, as well as Bill Connelly's F+ picks.
The full Big 12 schedule is below. K-State's open thread will go live one hour before kickoff.
Iowa State vs. Oklahoma State, Ames, Iowa, 11:00 a.m., FSN: Iowa State was ambushed last weekend in Waco, while the Pokes out-uglied TCU. This will probably be a low-scoring ug-fest, too, but I expect the Cowboys to win.
Oklahoma vs. Texas Tech, Norman, Okla., 2:30 p.m., FOX: Time for Texas Tech to show whether it's for real.
KU vs. Baylor, Lawrence, Kan., 6:00 p.m., ESPNU: Hide yo kids, hide yo wife. Take it away, Antoine Dodson.
Texas Christian vs. Texas, Fort Worth, Texas, 6:30 p.m., FS1: If Texas gets this one, the Longhorns will likely be 6-0 in conference play heading into the final stretch of Okie State-Texas Tech-Baylor.
