Big 12 contenders West Virginia, Kansas State hit the road


The Big 12 Conference and ESPN announced Monday that Kansas State’s October 22 homecoming game against Texas will kick off at 11 a.m. and will be televised by either ABC, ESPN or ESPN2.

Oklahoma Sooners running back Samaje Perine (32) dives over Kansas State Wildcats defensive back Dylan Schellenberg (20) during the game at Gaylord Family – Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. We’re all about having a singular focus each week and winning the Big 12 championship.

Game No. 6 on that slate will take place this Saturday, when OU hosts one of its all-time nemeses in coach Bill Snyder and the Kansas State Wildcats. With the loss, Texas is 0-2 in the Big 12.

“We have the capability and skill set, it’s more of a process of learning how to execute and learning how to win”, Peavy said.

Several coaches pointed out that defenses can not load up on rushing the quarterback because most Big 12 running games are potent. I’m happy that the hard work I’ve put in through the years is paying off on Saturdays. There are very recent examples of coaches doing a lot more in a shorter period when brought into similar (or worse) situations.

“We’re pretty familiar with Texas Tech”, Holgorsen said.

If you were in attendance for this one, you’ll remember how insanely cold it was. The senior likely re-established himself as the Bears’ top runner among their trio with a career-high 237 yards at Iowa State before an open date.

For Texas, getting to a bowl game needs to be the top priority. I was playing on our third-down rush package. Against Arkansas, the Horned Frogs overcame a 13-point fourth quarter deficit only to lose in double overtime. Our coaches yelled at me when I got to the sideline. Did that attract you to school? Willis has one or less touchdown passes in nine of his last 11 games.

Snyder returns the respect for the Oklahoma program. What’s it like to play for him?

Kliff Kingsbury, I think, is on thin ice. There’s no worry. You flip on the TV and hear talk about how some coaches are on the hot seat. I wrote in week two that Kenny Hill is good enough to win any game, and erratic enough to lose any game. However, a young Terrance Newman (he’s been old for about a decade, so it’s tough to remember him being young) returned a blocked punt for a touchdown to make it a game again with just over ten minutes left. The conference has gone away from that identity (aside from Baylor and Texas Tech) in recent years, which I am not sure has been good for the conference.

The Wildcats’ defensive adjustments at halftime helped springboard them to their first conference win of the year.

“We just battled and locked down defensively really well”, Jobson said. I could name a dozen mistakes that I made that day. “We’re two completely different teams”, Stoops added. Wherever the games were held, Interstate 35 got a workout in early December.

Look, I’m not saying that TCU should be doing to Kansas what MI just did to Rutgers, but TCU should be doing to Kansas what MI just did to Rutgers.

The Big 12 is looking to fill the calendar for five years, and other cities submitting bids are unknown.

“That just goes to show, when he’s healthy, nobody can beat this speed”, Mayfield said. A lot of it has to do with who you play at home, as opposed to who you play on the road.
