Big 12 Report: Week 12 Previews

A preview of week 12 in the Big 12.

Game: Texas vs. West Virginia
Last Week: Texas 42, Kansas 27 | West Virginia 28, Kansas State 23
Date & Time: Saturday, November 18th @ 11:00 a.m.
Location: Milan Puskar Stadium
Television: ESPN
Line: West Virginia -3.5
Expert Commentary: This seems like a pretty small line for West Virginia and WVU typically doesn’t lose at home. I’m guessing that there is no one on the Texas offense that will be able to stop Sills. The Texas defense is very good, but I’ll take the Mountaineers at home with that line.
Game: Iowa State vs. Baylor
Last Week: Oklahoma State 49, Iowa State 42 | Texas Tech 38, Baylor 24
Date & Time: Saturday, November 18th @ 1:30 p.m.
Location: McLane Stadium
Television: FSN
Line: Iowa State -10
Expert Commentary: This is another line that doesn’t seem like it is enough. Iowa State’s defense is better advertised and I don’t think Baylor’s offense will be able to keep pace. I do like Baylor’s ability to move the ball, but I don’t like their ability to make mistakes and their receivers catching the ball.
Game: Oklahoma vs. Kansas
Last Week: Oklahoma 38, TCU 20 | Texas 42, Kansas 27
Date & Time: Saturday, November 18th @ 2:30 p.m.
Location: Memorial Stadium
Television: ESPN
Line: Oklahoma -37
Expert Commentary: Take Oklahoma. They cannot afford to let the pedal off the gas, especially with that fourth place ranking that they received in the College Football Playoff. I just cannot imagine a situation where Kansas keeps it close and I’ll take the very motivated Sooners.
Game: Kansas State vs. Oklahoma State
Last Week: West Virginia 28, Kansas State 23 | Oklahoma State 49, Iowa State 42
Date & Time: Saturday, November 18th @ 2:30 p.m.
Location: Boone Pickens Stadium
Television: ESPN2
Line: Oklahoma State -20.5
Expert Commentary: Kansas State very may well run out of gas, but they, like Texas Tech, are driving towards a bowl bid and I think that’s important. Oklahoma State has to win if they still want a chance to play in the Big 12 Championship Game. This seems to be the toughest pick of the Big 12 slate this week and I still think I’ll take the Kansas State and those points.
