#15 Oklahoma St. (-5.0) 30 TEXAS A&M 27
Oklahoma State's offense hasn't been as good this season as it was the past couple of years despite having quarterback Zac Robinson, RB Kendall Hunter, and All-American WR Dez Bryant back. Hunter has been injured and ineffective when he's played and now Bryant has been suspended for the season.
Texas A&M is nothing special defensively, although they played well prior to last week's 19-47 loss to Arkansas, but my math model call for just 30 points for Oklahoma State. The Aggies have looked pretty good offensively, averaging 6.3 yppl and 38.5 points per game, but they've also faced teams that would combine to allow 5.9 ypl and 34 points per game, so they're actually not much better than average.
The Cowboys have been only slightly better than average defensively and the math projects 27 points for the Aggies. I'll lean sightly with A&M plus the points.
