The Baylor Bears have never beaten the Oklahoma Sooners in their football history, but they may have a good shot this week as the Sooners invade Waco in this Big 12 matchup.
That being said, it's going to be tough for Baylor to take out a resurgent Oklahoma team that has really bounced back with a vengeance after losing to Texas Tech a few weeks ago.
The Sooners started the season No. 1 and fell as far as No. 3 before their heartbreaking loss. Before that they were squarely in the national championship conversation, but now they sit at a still respectable No. 5.
It's a long shot now, but they do have a chance if they win-out their last three games.
The Bears on the other hand have had somewhat of a disappointing season with three huge losses, but they have one of the best quarterbacks in the nation in Robert Griffin III, and a chance to make everything better with a huge upset win at home.
There is a lot on the line for both teams, which makes an already good game much more appealing.
Where: Floyd Casey Stadium, Waco, TX
When: Saturday Nov. 19. 8 p.m EST
Watch: ABC Regional, ESPN3
Spread (Bodog.com) Oklahoma -16
The Bears have a very potent offense, so I'm not sure I would recommend taking the Sooners here.
Over/Under (bangthebook.com): 75
These are two good teams, but this is far too high.
Oklahoma: Linebacker Tom Wort questionable (ankle), kicker Jimmy Stevens questionable (quadricep), wide receiver Ryan Broyles out for season (knee), running Dominique Whaley out for season (knee).
Baylor: Wide receiver Kendall Wright probable (ankle), cornerback Tyler Stephenson questionable (ankle), defensive back Demetri Goodson questionable (ankle), Chance Casey doubtful (ankle).
BCS/Top 25 Poll Implications:
Obviously this is a huge game for No.5 Oklahoma, who can still find themselves in BCS championship contention if they win out their season. At No. 22 Baylor can make a huge jump up the rankings with a win over the Sooners.
Keys To Oklahoma Win:
Landry Jones is obviously the guy that makes this team go, and now that he's got key injuries to major player in the offense he's going to have to step up even more.
If Jones is on, the Sooners should roll.
Keys To Baylor Win:
Robert Griffin III is considered to be one of the best quarterbacks in the nation and a potential Top 10 pick in the upcoming NFL draft.
This is going to be the game of his season, and will most likely define his career at Baylor.
He's going to have to be a star if the Bears are to win this game.
The Bears will make it a very interesting game, but the Sooners are truly much better.
Oklahoma: 34 Baylor: 27
