Baylor vs. Oklahoma State matchup preview

The #9 Baylor Bears (10-2) are having a big turnaround season after going 2-7 last year. Now in head coach Dave Aranda’s second season, they have finished in second place in the conference and punched their ticket to the championship game.

Baylor has wins over big name programs on their 2021 schedule, including two ranked programs — BYU and Oklahoma. They also beat the Texas Longhorns, Kansas Jayhawks, and West Virginia Mountaineers. A big driving force behind the Bears’ success has been their two top rushers. Abram Smith and Trestan Ebner have combined for over 2,000 yards and 17 touchdowns. Their defense has done a top notch job, finishing in the top third of all college football teams with the fewest points allowed. They’re led by Terrel Bernard, who has five sacks, and J.T. Woods, who has three interceptions and a defensive touchdown.

The #5 Oklahoma State Cowboys (11-1) are so close to securing a spot in the College Football Playoffs. All that remains for Mike Gundy’s team is to win here and hope for Alabama to lose against Georgia.

Oklahoma State has three wins against ranked teams this season, including a 24-14 win over Baylor on October 2. A lot of credit is owed to quarterback Spencer Sanders, who has a combined 22 touchdowns, 2211 passing yards and 510 rushing yards. But in their first game, Baylor had no answer for Oklahoma State running back Jaylen Warren. He scored two rushing touchdowns against the Bears, including the game winner. If Oklahoma State can keep Warren rolling, they’ll be in a good position to hit the playoffs.

Experts expect just that as the Oklahoma State Cowboys are 5.5 point favorites over Baylor.
