West Virginia @ Kansas | September 23rd, 11AM - ESPNU | Line: -21.5 West Virginia | O/U: 71

Will Grier has completed 69 (nice)/105 of his passes so far this season, totaling 1,027 yards. The Mountaineer offense is really exceptional, averaging 583 yards a game. The defense is a little less impressive, allowing 413.3 yards a game. Their secondaries are a little rough, but against Kansas it should be no problem.

WV injuries: Toyous Avery (S) - questionable for Saturday, Grant Lingafelter (OL) - questionable due to a knee injury, and Kennedy McKoy (RB) - not an injury, but disciplinary issues arose for McKoy, he’ll probably make it in sometime during the game.

Kansas on the other hand is coming off a loss to the Ohio Bobcats. Do I think Kansas will win this game? No. Will they win more games than Baylor? Yes.

Kansas injuries: Isi Holani (DT) - out for the season, Kenyon Taylor (TE) - out for season, Derrick Neal (CB) - questionable, Taylor Martin (RB) - TBD, Shaquille Richmond (S) - probable.

West Virginia 49 - Kansas 14

#16 TCU @ #6 Oklahoma State | September 23rd, 2:30 PM - ESPN | Line: -13 Oklahoma State | O/U: 71

... Another O/U of 71? Amazing. I’m not even kidding. So far this season, Kenny Hill is completing about 3% more (75% total completion rate) passes than Mason Rudolph. While interesting, that won’t help TCU in Stillwater.

TCU injuries: Kyle Hicks (RB) - undisclosed injury, unlikely to play, Ty Slanina (WR) - undisclosed, probable, Ty Summers (LB) - ankle, probable to play.

Oklahoma State injuries: Kevin Henry (LB) - out for season with an ankle injury, Kenneth Edison-McGruder (S) - TBA, Tyron Johnson (WR) - suspension, TBA.

Oklahoma State 35 - TCU 21

#3 Oklahoma @ BayLLLor | September 23rd, 5:30 PM - FS1 | Line: -28 Oklahoma | O/U: 63
