Big 12 Roundup: Final Push for Heisman Candidates

Week 12 Review Oklahoma State @ Iowa State It’s tough not to feel sorry for the Cowboys, suffering a school tragedy (plane crash killing women’s basketball coach plus three others), then missing a FG by the narrowest of margins to end regulation, only to lose a game in overtime where they had been 27 point […]

Big 12 Roundup: The Quick and Dirty

Baylor @ Texas A&M:  Expect lots of offense and high scores here, resulting in a victory for A&M. Robert Griffin, Kendall Wright, and Terrance Ganaway should start.

Big 12 Roundup: Red River Shootout!

Oklahoma vs Texas The Red River Shootout has been decided by 10 points or less for the last four seasons, and I expect it to be close again despite the strength of Oklahoma on both sides of the ball. Oklahoma hasn’t run the ball well against Texas in most of these games, and I don’t […]
