I’m giving myself a point for my call that the Texas/Oklahoma game would be too close to call. At least in subsequent matchups, you don’t have to worry as much about the Sooners given Bradford’s second injury. They’re the “what if” team of the year, that’s for sure.
My other pick was Iowa over Wisconsin, and as predicted, Iowa just covered. Both teams came in strong with defensive efforts, though. Look at Iowa at 7-0. And I can’t recall right now, but if I did pick the OSU Purdue game, I definitely didn’t get that one right. That what happens when you buy into that Buckeyes hype machine. It’s one of the best in the business.
OK, so saying a fairly accurate 2-1 from last week, that puts me at a still-respectable 10-6 record on the season. Let’s preview a couple more for Week 7.
Oklahoma State and Baylor: OSU as the road team is a 10.5-point favorite, and I going to say that’s not enough and OSU will cover. MU is stronger than Baylor as a whole, and after trailing the Tigers by a touchdown a couple times in the first half, OSU buckled down and rolled over them en route to a 33-17 victory. There’s no reason to believe they can’t do the same thing or worse on the road against Baylor.
Watch this Oklahoma at KU matchup closely. With Bradford out, Kansas can definitely come in strong at home and win this game. The Sooners have a 7-point edge right now, so it could be a good time to gamble on an injury. They’re just not the same team without their star QB, and anyone who thinks different is ripe for the taking. If Bradford plays, will he be shaky like Tebow was? The Jayhawks are not to be underestimated, and I think they have a real shot with Bradford on the bench.
