#11 TCU @ Texas Tech | November 18th, 11AM - FS1 | Line: -7 TCU

Last week, the Horned Frogs got curb stomped by Oklahoma, 38-20. Texas Tech staved off BayLLLLLLLLLor 38-24. I expect TCU to win by 10, that sounds believable enough to me.

Texas @ #24 West Virginia | November 18th, 11AM - ESPN | Line: -3.5 WV

This should be a fun game, I think the Longhorns can do well if Bobby keeps smelling the beer. This pick is based on minimal research, so, caveat emptor.

Texas 35 - West Virginia 30

(RV) Iowa State @ BayLLLLLLLLWLor | November 18th, 1:30 PM - FSN | Line: -9.5 ISU

I’m not touching this game with a 10 foot pole. I expect the game to go a certain way and that it’ll produce a desired result.

#3 Oklahoma @ Kansas | November 18th, 2:30 PM - ESPN | Line: -36.5 Oklahoma

Kansas, another week, and another line that isn’t the worst in the nation. This week, Illinois is a +40.5 to Ohio State. That should be reassuring, Kansas may keep it close on their first possession, but I don’t see how Oklahoma doesn’t take the Jayhawks to the woodshed, especially seeing how Lampkin has been playing.

Kansas State @ #10 Oklahoma State | November 18th, 2:30 PM - ESPN2 | Line: -21 Oklahoma State

Oklahoma State is going to win, but, it’ll be less than a 21 point victory.
