PFB Predictions: Oklahoma State-Baylor

Published

on

It’s been nearly two weeks, but it’s time for some more predictions. This time around it’s Homecoming, Baylor and Mason Rudolph’s last chance as the Big 12 title race heats up.

I think Oklahoma State is going to keep it simple against Baylor this weekend. Do what you do and do it well. Don’t try to get too crazy with the offense, take care of business, take care of the ball and put the game away early in the second half.

I have to go Justice because I think he’s going to run wild on the Bears. Baylor’s rushing defense is dead last in the league and its 138 yards given up to Liberty in the opener was a season best.

Player of the Game: Mason Rudolph

OSU-Baylor has been a big game in recent history, but with no Art Briles and a talent level similar to the Baylor of the early 2000s, I think OSU wins big behind a 6-touchdown day from Mason Rudolph.

Baylor’s defense is not great. Their average passing yards allowed per game is 237.6 and their average rushing yards allowed per game is 234.2. Gundy’s balanced attack plan is setting up nicely.

Although the 2011 comparisons have diminished after the loss to TCU, I think it’s fair to continue comparing the two squads seeing as how each only had/has one loss.

Let’s not forget that Oklahoma State was up 49-3 at the end of the third quarter against Baylor and their Heisman QB in 2011. The Cowboys have the best opportunity to avenge recent Baylor losses this Saturday and Rudolph will get his long-awaited victory over Baylor.

Pick: OSU 49-30

Baylor isn’t a strong run defense and it the run game will become the ultimate separation betwee OSU and Baylor. Expect the Bears to score through the air, though.

Sam Aldrich

Pick: OSU 45-17
Spread: OSU covers
PotG: Mason Rudolph

No. 2 goes off on the Baylor secondary for at least 4 touchdowns through the air and the Pokes roll on Homecoming.

Matt Harris

Pick: Oklahoma State 52-35

Gundy sticks with a balanced attack and Justice has a monster day on the ground. Baylor went for 700 yards the last time the Bears were in Stillwater and this time it’s the Pokes who will approach that number. Oklahoma State sends everyone home happy with a Homecoming win that no one has to sweat out.

Baylor’s rush defense isn’t great. Justice and friends will have ample running lanes to gash the Bear for 200+ yards on the ground.

Ryan Harris

Pick: Oklahoma State 49-34
Spread: Oklahoma State does not cover
Player of the game: Mason Rudolph and James Washington

Mason Rudolph finally gets that elusive win over the Bears. #Rudolph2Washington will be in full effect in the dynamic duos final homecoming in OSU orange. Baylor hangs around for a half before OSU pulls away.

Phillip Slavin

Pick: Oklahoma State 55-35
Spread: Oklahoma State dos not cover
Player of the Game: J.D. King

OSU gets up BIG early, and coasts the rest of the way. King’s physical nature allows him to break through a decent Baylor DLine and run for 150 and 2 touchdowns with most of it coming after halftime.

Hayden Barber

Pick: Oklahoma State 38-23
Spread: Oklahoma State does not cover

Last year, Mike Yurcich went uber conservative against Baylor, and it almost worked. I think he looks at that result, know that the Bears aren’t as good this year and try it again. Spoiler: It works.
