Big 12 Week 6 Predictions: Texas-Oklahoma Rivalry, Oklahoma State, TCU Face Key Road Tests

Oklahoma versus Texas at the Cotton Bowl is one of the must-see games on an annual basis in the Big 12. While the rivalry always adds an element of intrigue to this game, this season’s matchup doesn’t have its usual luster. Oklahoma is a Big 12 title contender, but Texas is off to a 1-4 start. The Longhorns could salvage some of their season with an upset victory over the Sooners, but the odds are stacked against coach Charlie Strong’s team. Outside of the Oklahoma-Texas contest, TCU visits Kansas State and Oklahoma State travels to West Virginia to headline the other must-see matchups in the Big 12 for Week 6. Can the Mountaineers slow down the Cowboys’ passing attack without star safety Karl Joseph? Texas Tech hosts Iowa State, while Baylor travels to Kansas to round out the matchups this Saturday.
