|Baylor WR Terrance Williams has one more chance to impress the Biletnikoff Award voters on Saturday. (US Presswire)|
Kickoff: Saturday, 12 p.m. ET (FX)
Spread: Oklahoma State by 4.5
Watchability: Do you like offense? Want one last taste of the Big 12's penchant for points before watching the Big Ten and SEC championship games on Saturday? If the answer is yes, tune into this one, which features two of the nation's top-5 scoring offenses.
Shining stars: Oklahoma State -- QB Clint Chelf. No matter who plays quarterback, the Cowboys' offense keeps rolling. Chelf has done an admirable job since being forced into action due to injuries to the first two quarterbacks on the depth chart -- Wes Lunt and J.W. Walsh. Chelf did all he could in last week's overtime loss to Oklahoma in Bedlam, throwing for 253 yards and running for another 63. Baylor -- WR Terrance Williams. The Biletnikoff Award finalist has made every opponent his personal play thing this season, putting up ridiculous statistics. He has 89 catches for 1,693 yards and 12 touchdowns. His consistency has been something to marvel at, as he has at least 84 yards in every game this year, to go with five games of more than 150 yards.
Who could steal the show: Oklahoma State -- RB Joseph Randle. His production had eroded a bit before last week's loss to Oklahoma, but in that game, he reminded everyone he may be the Big 12's most talented running back. He ran for 113 yards and four touchdowns against the Sooners and now has 1,212 yards and 14 touchdowns. Baylor -- RB Lache Seastrunk. It took awhile, but the sophomore transfer from Oregon has shown why he was such a coveted recruit. He has 91 rushing yards or more in each of the last four games, including three 100-yard efforts. Seastrunk has brought a balance to the Baylor offense that simply wasn't there before.
You going? Ranking the road trip: It's Senior Day in Waco, and fans should be prepared to show their appreciation for Williams, QB Nick Florence and the rest of the BU seniors. Baylor's last home game was a 52-24 thumping of then-No. 1 Kansas State, so the partisans should be excited to see their team take the field one last time.
Magic number for Oklahoma State: 124.36. The rest of the defensive stats may not exactly be great, but the Cowboys are No. 22 against the run nationally, allowing only 124.36 yards per game. Baylor's recent improvement has coincided with a surge in rushing performance, with more than 260 rushing yards in each of the last four games. Watch this battle closely.
Magic number for Baylor: 2. Forcing turnovers has been key to BU's success all season long. Baylor has won three of its last four games, and not coincidentally, the Bears have picked off two or more passes in all three of those games -- including three interceptions of Seth Doege in last week's OT win at Texas Tech and three picks of K-State's Collin Klein in that upset win.
The game comes down to: Which offense blinks first? These are two of the Big 12's best when it comes to scoring, and both defenses have had their issues this season. Also, after the emotional loss last week to Oklahoma, will the Cowboys have anything left this week? How Oklahoma State starts the game could be telling.
Prediction: Oklahoma State 49, Baylor 42
