    [​IMG]We've got another good set of games this weekend, but my predictions are on the way in the morning. For now, let's hear yours in the comments.

    No. 21 Baylor at No. 17 Oklahoma State (Fox Sports Net, 12:30 p.m.): Two of the league's best offenses will go at it in Stillwater, featuring two of the top candidates for the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year: Oklahoma State receiver Justin Blackmon and Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III.

    Colorado at Kansas (2 p.m.): These are the only two teams without a conference win in four tries so far this season. After Saturday, just one winless team will remain. Kansas showed some improvement last week, holding a halftime lead over Iowa State. That'll have to continue this week for Kansas to end its 11-game losing streak in conference.

    No. 7 Nebraska at Iowa State (ABC, 3:30 p.m.): Nebraska had to fend off a North contender last week in Missouri, and it must do it again this week in Iowa State. Coach Bo Pelini joked that he couldn't remember last year's game, a Cyclones upset that featured eight Nebraska turnovers.

    No. 8 Oklahoma at Texas A&M (Fox Sports Net, 7 p.m.): Oklahoma's less impressive road play has taken a front seat this week, and the Sooners begin a stretch of three road games in four weeks to close the season. Texas A&M will try to continue their momentum from quarterback Ryan Tannehill's first start last week.

    Texas at Kansas State (ESPN2/ESPN3, 8 p.m.): All of a sudden, Texas is in a bit of danger of missing a bowl game. The Longhorns still have Florida Atlantic on the schedule, but they'll still have to beat another good team to earn a sixth win. Kansas State injured Colt McCoy's shoulder and beat Texas in McCoy's first start in Manhattan. How will Garrett Gilbert fare? And hey, you can watch this game on an Xbox now! (Note: I tried out this feature earlier this week. It's legitimately kind of amazing.)

    No. 12 Missouri at Texas Tech (ABC, 8 p.m.): Missouri has beaten the Red Raiders in three consecutive matchups, losing just once since 1996. Blaine Gabbert and the Missouri offense should find the Texas Tech secondary a bit more welcoming than Nebraska's.
