Baylor vs. Oklahoma preview:

The Bears have dropped two in a row after starting the season 6-0, with TCU blowing them out of the water last week, 62-22. The defense just hasn't been there for the Bears this year, and it shows. The offense putting up 40 points has become almost a necessity if this Baylor team wants to win. They can't afford to have that defensive play against Oklahoma, who have scored at least 34 in every win this year.

Oklahoma took down Iowa State last week, 34-24, making it their sixth win in a row after starting the season 1-2. The turnaround has been remarkable, and the offense appears to finally be clicking for the Sooners. They can score at an absolutely unreal pace and can keep up with any team in the nation in a shootout.

The Sooners won last year's match-up, 44-34.

Baylor vs. Oklahoma prediction:

Oklahoma wins this one. If there's one thing Oklahoma can do well, it's put up points. If there's one thing Baylor doesn't do well, it's stop opponents from putting points. Once Oklahoma gets a lead, the floodgates will open and the Bears won't be able to mount much of a response on either side of the ball.
