Quick Picks for Week 8 in the Big 12
October 20, 2010 § Leave a comment
Well, I didn’t fare so well last week. I’m doing my picks a bit early this week because I’m going to be out of town the next few days. A few big match-ups this weekend so let’s see if I can redeem myself. Object to any picks? Let it be known!
Iowa State Cyclones (3-4, 1-2) @ Texas Longhorns (4-2, 2-1) = Texas Longhorns (OU and Texas back-to-back on the road? That sucks. Sorry ISU, you may compete with KU as the worst team in the Big 12 again this week)
Nebraska Cornhuskers (5-1, 1-1) @ Oklahoma State Cowboys (6-0, 2-0) = Nebraska Cornhuskers (Nebraska is pissed and Okie State always finds a way to lose big games)
Texas Tech Red Raiders (3-3, 1-3) @ Colorado Buffaloes (3-3, 0-2) = Texas Tech Red Raiders (Tech is a tad bit better than Baylor who took care of business in Boulder last week. Prove me wrong, Buffs)
Kansas State Wildcats (5-1, 2-1) @ Baylor Bears (5-2, 2-1) = Baylor Bears (I had to ponder this one, but this is K-State’s first TRUE road test. RGIII and company will be ready)
Texas A&M Aggies (3-3, 0-2) at Kansas Jayhawks (2-4, 0-2) = Texas A&M Aggies (I can’t take myself seriously if I choose KU against anyone at this moment. But I’ll be in Lawrence for the game so if you want to go ahead and play football like Division 1 athletes, please do)
Oklahoma Sooners (6-0, 2-0) @ Missouri Tigers (6-0, 2-0) = Oklahoma Sooners (I had a bad feeling about picking against Mizzou last week but lets be real, OU is a better team. Not saying it can’t be done but I see OU winning. And what numb nuts scheduled OU for homecoming? Aren’t you supposed to schedule someone you know you can beat?)
What do YOU think?
