    [​IMG]My predictions are on the way Thursday morning, but let's hear yours in the comments. Here's what you can watch on Saturday (all times ET):

    THURSDAY

    Texas A&M at Oklahoma State (ESPN, 7:30 p.m.): The winner will have very real Big 12 South title hopes. Oklahoma State's untested but much-improved offense takes on Texas A&M's untested but much-improved defense. Thursday night's game is one of five matchups this week between undefeated teams.

    SATURDAY

    Kansas at Baylor (Fox Sports Net, noon): Kansas had a rough outing on its first road trip, losing 31-16 to Southern Miss. It'll try for a better result this time against a 3-1 Baylor team scratching at every chance to secure an elusive sixth win for bowl eligibility.

    Texas vs. Oklahoma in Dallas (ABC, 3:30 p.m.): The Big 12's signature rivalry lost a little luster with Texas' 34-12 loss to UCLA, but Oklahoma had lost a lot more than that coming into last year's game, and nearly knocked off the Longhorns, who ended up in the national title game. Records have very little to do with who leaves the Texas State Fair wearing the Golden Hat.

    Georgia at Colorado (Fox Sports Net, 7 p.m.): Georgia limps in as losers of its past three, but gets star receiver A.J. Green back on the field for its trip to Boulder. He'll be a big task for Colorado's talented corners, Jimmy Smith and Jalil Brown, but the Buffaloes' only loss this year came on the road.

    Texas Tech at Iowa State (Fox College Sports, 7 p.m.): Texas Tech had to stew over its loss to Texas for two weeks before taking its team to Ames for a matchup with the Cyclones. Iowa State played its best defensive game of the season last week, but faces a stiff test in Texas Tech's skill position players.

    Idle: Missouri, Nebraska, Kansas State
