Big 12 Bowl Projections – Week 7


Big 12 bowl projections for Week 7. OU takes out Texas in the Red River Showdown.


Did we see Charlie Strong coach in the Red River Showdown for the final time?

After taking over defensive play-calling duties from coordinator Vance Bedford, Strong saw his defense once again get lit up and fail to show much resistance in a Sooners win on Saturday. The Longhorns need to somehow pick up the pieces and salvage a season in which it has now lost three in a row.

Meanwhile, Bill Snyder’s still got it. Kansas State beat high-scoring Texas Tech, though the Wildcats still have yet to crack our Big 12 postseason projections.
