    [​IMG]Here's what to expect in this week's games, and when you can watch them. Also, yes, I think it's as ridiculous as you do that a Big 12 Conference game is on pay-per-view.

    My picks are on the way on Thursday morning, as usual, but let's hear yours in the comments. (all times ET)

    No. 24 Kansas State at No. 17 Missouri (Fox Sports Net, 12:30 p.m.): The Tigers will have to put a pair of losses behind them to knock off Kansas State at Faurot Field. Missouri played two of its worst games the last two weeks, but Kansas State had one of it best performances last week in a 39-14 dismantling of Texas in Manhattan.

    Iowa State at Colorado (Fox College Sports, 1:30 p.m): Colorado will be playing its first game under interim coach Brian Cabral, but they'll have to beat a hungry Iowa State team. The Cyclones lost a painful game to Nebraska last week, but a win would put them in a bowl for the second consecutive season.

    Texas Tech at No. 16 Oklahoma (ABC/ESPN3, 3:30 p.m.): The two teams have traded blowouts in their last two meetings, but the Sooners get a one-week reprieve from worrying about their troubles on the road. Oklahoma will try to stretch its home winning streak to 36 games, but Texas Tech knocked off Missouri last week, who beat Oklahoma earlier in the year.

    Kansas at No. 8 Nebraska (pay-per-view, 7 p.m.): Turner Gill has downplayed his return to Lincoln this week, where he starred as a quarterback under former coach and current AD Tom Osborne. Expect a warm welcome for the for Huskers assistant. Current Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez is expected to return from an ankle injury.

    No. 25 Texas A&M at Baylor (Fox Sports Net, 7 p.m.): The Battle of the Brazos will feature two teams having their best years ever under current coaches Art Briles and Mike Sherman. Baylor must rebound from a lopsided loss to Oklahoma State, while Texas A&M is riding high off the best win Sherman's tenure in College Station, an upset of Oklahoma.

    No. 10 Oklahoma State at Texas (ABC/ESPN3, 8 p.m.): Oklahoma State fans can't help but feel nervous about this one. The Cowboys should win, but Texas' only win in the past six games is over the only team in the Big 12 ranked higher than the Cowboys: Nebraska. Texas will probably need to find an offensive spark to do it, and backup Case McCoy might get a shot if Garrett Gilbert struggles like he did against Kansas State, when he threw five interceptions.
