ESPN’s traveling college football pregame show, “College GameDay,” is in Stillwater, OK., for a Big 12 match up. Undefeated and BCS Championship hopefuls No. 4 Baylor Bears are taking on the one-loss No. 10 Oklahoma State Cowboys. If the Cowboys win they can take the lead in the Big 12 Championship race which is awarded to the team with the best record and not in a championship game.
“Bedlam is the only time we’ve ever been here, so it’s neat,” host Chris Fowler said Friday afternoon, via NewsOK.com. “Before this season, you wouldn’t have predicted this to be the game (we’d visit). People might have looked and saw that Texas A&M was playing LSU. We would have predicted that that would be (the game).
“But this is good. This place has been No. 1 on the grid for the last few weeks and as long as (Baylor and OSU) didn’t stumble.”
The game should be a match up of high-powered offenses. Baylor is averaging 61.2 points (1st in FBS) a game while Oklahoma State has put up an average of 40.4 points (14th in FBS). Interesting, both teams are in the top 15 in points allowed as well. The Baylor defense gives up 17.4 points a game while Oklahoma State gives up 19 points a game.
