Live at 8:00 PM No. 4 Baylor at No. 10 Oklahoma State ABC | Listen Live Audio Coverage
The Baylor Bears (9-0, 6-0 Big 12), have been very impressive so far this season and will put their undefeated season on the line at the Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater, Okla. on Saturday against a Oklahoma State (9-1, 6-1 Big 12) side which has won its last six.
With both teams looking to improve in the BCS standings, the game comes at a vital time for both programs, who also have their eyes on claiming the Big 12 title this year.
“From a reality standpoint, it’s a huge game,” Baylor coach Art Briles noted Monday. “It’s a huge game because of what our team has done and what their team has done.
“It didn’t matter whatever team Oklahoma State was playing this week or Baylor was playing this week–it was going to be a big game because of what they’ve done up through the season and what we’ve done up through the season.
“When you get late in the season and you’ve had a good run, that’s what happens and fortunately we’re in it.”
Briles has gotten the Bear off to a flying 9-0 start for the first time in school history and his team offense leads the nation with 61 points and 685 yards a game.
They will be starting as the slight favorites for victory, but the head coach remains cautious, especially with the previous struggles in Stillwater.
“They’ve just played better than we have when we’ve been up there,” he said. “You could probably speak to quite a few universities with that.”
Briles, though, noted that this team is a more mature team from the past and expects different showing.
“I think we’re going in there as a more mature football team than we have in the past,” he said.
Cowboys coach Mike Gundy also believes it will be a challenging game for his team.
“We got our work cut out for us this week, playing the best team in the league,” Gundy said. “Baylor’s pretty much had their way with everybody they’ve played this year, I think everybody would agree with that.
“They’re very deserving of being ranked third or fourth in the country. A lot of credit goes to them, so it should be a lot of fun Saturday night.”
Also in action on Saturday, is No. 1 Alabama (10-0, 7-0 SEC) hosting Chattanooga (8-3, 6-2 Southern) at Bryant-Denny Stadium.
The Crimson Tide will be hoping to stay perfect this season with another win as they brace for next weekend’s clash with the No. 6 Auburn Tigers, who are resting this season.
Idaho is at No. 2 Florida State, No. 3 Ohio State play host to Indiana and No. 5 Oregon are at Arizona. Other top teams in action this weekend are No. 9 Stanford and they face California and Citadel is at No. 7 Clemson.
