Oklahoma 45, Texas Tech 31. The Sooners offense continues to roll behind Jalen Hurts and pulls away from the Red Raiders.

TCU 34, Kansas 20. The Frogs had a frustrating loss to SMU last weekend, and to Kansas last season. They’ll be ready for this one.

Baylor 40, Iowa State 34 (OT). Charlie Brewer is off to a solid start for the Bears, and will get the best of Brock Purdy and the Cyclones in overtime.

Oklahoma State 34, Kansas State 30. K-State is off to an impressive start under Chris Klieman. But we’ll take Spencer Sanders and Chuba Hubbard at home.

Bonus pick

Texas A&M 45, Arkansas 20. Arkansas lost to San Jose State in its last game. Texas A&M will cruise to an easy victory at AT&T Stadium.
