There is a lot more at stake for the Cowboys on Saturday than a second Big 12 title in program history.

A win in Saturday’s Big 12 Championship would provide Oklahoma State a strong case to make the College Football Playoff for the first time, but for that to be possible, the Cowboys have to get past the Baylor Bears for the second time this season. Here is some information to get you ready for Saturday’s game.

Series History

The Cowboys improved their series lead over the Bears to 22-18 with the win in Stillwater this season.

The other neutral site meetings between these teams came when they played in Oklahoma City in 1942, an 18-12 Baylor win, and when they played in Wichita Falls in 1938, a 20-6 Baylor win.
