Let me the first to throw up an unrealistic red flag.


I know Kansas is terrible and OSU is really good, BUT this is a classic trap game for the Cowboys. Coming off their first win in Austin in 66 years, and with Bedlam potentially for the Big 12 South just a week would be real easy to overlook the Jayhawks. The 11am kickoff doesnt help either. Im just saying...dont be surprised if this one is closer than the experts predict. Turner Gills team stinks, but they did get up to beat Georgia Tech at home this seaosn. They cant come close to matching OSUs firepower and they would need tohe Pokes to help them out with some self-inflicted wounds. Can Kansas pull of the shocker as a 24-point underdog? Of course not? That makes no sense? But Im saying theyve got a chance.

Im done trying to guess OUs results on the road. They should win IF they play well, but thats a big "IF." I do think, however, youll see Tony Jefferson have a big night in Waco. Jeffersons speed could be leaned on heavily when it comes to chasing Robert Griffin around. Offensivley, big-time receivers have had big-time games against Baylor. Justin Blackmon went for 173 yards. Therefore, keep an eye on Ryan Broyles (theres a big limb).

Upset of the Day: Iowa State over Missouri.
