Big 12 Week 8 Predictions: Oklahoma-Texas Tech Shootout, Texas Hosts Kansas State

The Big 12’s Week 8 slate is relatively quiet, but the intrigue level in this conference will increase once November arrives with a handful of huge league matchups. Oklahoma rebounded from a loss to Texas with an blowout victory over Kansas State last Saturday, and the Sooners are poised for a high-scoring matchup against Texas Tech in Week 8. Outside of Norman, the other must-see matchup on the Big 12’s schedule is Texas hosting Kansas State. Both teams need this game in order to reach bowl eligibility, and the Longhorns have momentum after beating Oklahoma in Dallas in Week 6. Baylor should have an easy win against Iowa State, while Oklahoma State is a heavy favorite against winless Kansas.
