Thursday: Texas 31, Iowa State 30: We've talked enough about this one already.
KU vs. Texas Tech, Lawrence, Kan., 11:00 a.m., FS1: Guns up! Two more losses, and KU will own the longest losing streak to current conference opponents in Big 8/12 history.
Oklahoma vs. TCU, Norman, Okla., 6:00 p.m., FOX: Can the Belldozer (or the Yeti, depending on your terminology) bulldoze the Horned Frogs' defense?
