Week 8 of the Big 12 football schedule features four games, starting with a showdown in Waco at noon between the Iowa State Cyclones and No. 2 Baylor Bears. The Bears feature an explosive offense led by QB Seth Russell, who has passed for 1,907 yards and 27 TDs in only six games this season. Bears WR Corey Coleman has been the recipient of 16 of those touchdown passes, which leads the FBS.
Also at noon, Texas looks to continue its momentum after upsetting rival Oklahoma two weeks ago when the Longhorns host struggling Kansas State. The Longhorns are coming off a bye week, while the Wildcats got blown out by Oklahoma this past week, 55-0. Kansas State has lost three straight games after opening the season 3-0.
At 3:30 p.m. ET, a battle of two high-scoring offense will take place in Norman as the Oklahoma Sooners host the Texas Tech Red Raiders. Tech leads the FBS in total yards, gaining more than 4,300 so far this season. Red Raiders QB Patrick Mahomes has thrown for 20 touchdowns on the season. Oklahoma features a deadly backfield with QB Baker Mayfield and RB Samaje Perine able to gain yards in a hurry.
The hapless Kansas Jayhawks will travel to Stillwater still looking for their first win on the season as they take on Oklahoma State at 4:30 p.m. ET. The Jayhawks have started the season 0-6, while the Cowboys are a perfect 6-0 after a big win at West Virginia last week.
