Part III

I have OSU at 8-1 through the first 3/4 of the season. The gauntlet awaits though — the toughest stretch of the season comes at the end.

Game: at Texas
Date: Saturday, November 16

This is the big one. I have Texas winning the conference pretty much solely because they get the Cowboys at home. I know the following things:

But we develop our recruits so much better!
But Mack isn’t in Gundy’s league!
But we have a streak of winning in Austin!

I’m not going to be shocked if OSU wins this game but I think it’s easily the toughest game on the schedule right now — I’m not even sure it’s close.

Prediction: Horns by 6
Record: 8-2

Game: Baylor at home
Date: Saturday, November 23

I never thought I would type the words “man it’s good to get Baylor back in the friendly confines of Boone Pickens Stadium” but it really is. The things these two offenses do are going to be so NSFW it’s going to be unreal. You might consider sending your kids to their grandparents for the weekend. Just trust me.

Prediction: Pokes: 80-77
Record: 9-2

Game: Bedlam at home
Date: Saturday, December 7

Is it weird that I’m not really that concerned about this game?

Bedlam doesn’t feel like it has that 2008ish stink of “will OSU ever win this game again?” anymore. It feels like they should be 7-8 point favorites and win by 10. That’s it. Cut and dry.

Oh and the stat you’ll likely hear 1.3 million times between now and then: OSU hasn’t trailed OU in regulation since 2010.

Prediction: OSU by 10
Record: 10-2

Really I could see OSU going 1-2, 2-1, or 3-0 in this stretch. I don’t really think 0-3 is on the table but that wouldn’t completely stun me either. Also, it’s the most fun stretch of the year by far. Texas is always a thriller and OU and Baylor should score and score and score.

It’s just that OSU should score more.
