Oklahoma Sooners @ Baylor Bears (11/16/19): Matchup Analysis, Betting Pick

Oklahoma to wear alternate uniforms against Baylor	
				Brayden Conover USA Today SoonersWire

Oklahoma has made its mark lighting up the scoreboard. Baylor will play with nothing to lose unlike teams Hurts faced while at Alabama.

When the top teams in the Big 12 meet on Saturday (7:30 p.m. ET, ABC) in the league's most important and consequential 2019 game to date, it'll be a classic "something's gotta give" clash with No. 10 Oklahoma's elite offense taking on the league's stingiest defense in No. 13 Baylor. In their roles as guest pickers, the couple will appear on the show alongside host Rece Davis, and analysts Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard, and Lee Corso, to pick who will win approximately 10 college football games on Saturday.

Running the ball for the Sooners successfully generally leads to a win, but it could be particularly useful in Waco.

Head mentor Lincoln Riley of the Oklahoma Sooners during Huge 12 Championship game versus the TCU Horned Frogs at AT&T Stadium on December two, 2017 in Arlington, Texas. Oklahoma has played one ranked team this season and they came away with a 34-27 win over then #11 Texas.

Oklahoma WR CeeDee Lamb leads the nation with 13 touchdowns receiving and has had only one game this season when he didn't get into the end zone. "But it's going to take a lot more than just the right mindset". Baylor won back-to-back meetings in 2013-14.

Baylor kept its unbeaten season alive last weekend with a 29-23 OT win at TCU. How well can Baylor defend Oklahoma's offense?


"Sometimes in those two-point scenarios you think some people take the approach of trickery, which obviously they used some over the course of the night in other situations", Grinch said.

"We don't want to be one of those programs that make excuses, we don't want to talk about, oh well we would played well except we lost this guy or that guy", Rhule said. "He'll make his plays - we just have to make sure it's a 20-yard gain and not an 80-yard gain and that all comes back to tackling". The Bears are still a good team, but some of the luck they have received might be starting to run out.

Oklahoma will wear its alternate Rough Rider uniforms for the Baylor game (cream jersey, red bottoms and white Rough Rider helmets).

The key matchup, however, could be in the middle, where Oklahoma center Creed Humphrey (95) squares off against Baylor defensive tackle Bravvion Roy (81).

"Again, Baylor is a great crew with superior road wins", [selection committee chairman Rob] Mullens stated. The 6-foot-5, 316-pound redshirt sophomore will be tasked with leading the OU line against a quality Baylor defensive line.

Competition in the Big 12 this season is fierce, unpredictable and fun. The Bears lead the Big 12 allowing only 19 points a game, and are second at 337 total yards a game - drastically improved after giving up 32 points and 426 yards a game last season. The Sooners have won 18 consecutive November games since its 2014 home loss to Baylor.
