Week 4 of the College Football season sees Big 12 conference play begin this morning. West Virginia and Kansas kick things off at 11am on ESPNU while Texas Tech face off with a strong out of conference Houston team on ABC/ESPN2 at 11am as well. One of the best matchups this week sees the 16th ranked TCU face off against 6th ranked Oklahoma State on ESPN. Rounding out today’s matchup sees No.3 Oklahoma face a struggling Baylor at 5:30pm on FS1. Kansas State, Iowa State and Texas all have a bye week.
West Virginia at Kansas
Kicking off Big 12 play sees West Virginia travel to Kansas. The Mountaineers will be looking to show why they were ranked 22nd to start the season when they face against a Jayhawk side that has been poor so far and who are 0-2 against MAC this season.
Texas Tech at Houston
Texas Tech remains in state to travel to Houston in what should be a high scoring game. Texas Tech quarterback Nic Shimonek will be key to the Red Raiders’ offense who has been one of the better quarterbacks in the Big 12 this season.
No. 16 TCU at No.6 Oklahoma State
In one of the marquee matchups this weekend TCU travels to Stillwater to face Oklahoma State. Both teams are undefeated thus far and ranked nationally. Oklahoma State has one of the best offenses in the country and are led by Heisman candidate, Mason Rudolph. Meanwhile TCU has faced tougher competition beating out Arkansas two weeks ago. A win for either team will put them in national title discussion.
No. 3 Oklahoma at Baylor
Rounding out Big 12 play today sees 3rd ranked Oklahoma travel to Baylor who is 0-3 this season. In what should be a one sided affair Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield will look to continue his fine form this season as he cements his place as a favorite for the Heisman. While Baylor gets back Terence Williams, who rushed for 1000 yards last season, he will be unlikely to make much of a difference.
