Predicting each Big 12 matchup in Week 5

All Big 12 schools are in action this week as conference play is starting to heat up. The Week 5 stale should paint a picture of who is going to compete for a league title and who has work to be done.

No. 16 Baylor and No. 9 Oklahoma State get together for a rematch of last year’s Big 12 championship game. The Cowboys are unbeaten this season entering their first conference game of the season. Baylor is 3-1 coming off an impressive road victory at Iowa State.

No. 25 Kansas State host Texas Tech as both schools are coming off major upset wins. Wildcats’ Adrian Martinez and Red Raiders’ Donovan Smith provide a sneaky good quarterback matchup in this one.

No. 18 Oklahoma and Texas are looking to get back on the hump after struggles in Week 4. The Sooners travel to take on Sonny Dykes and new-look TCU. Texas welcomes West Virginia to town in what should be an offensive shootout.

Kansas just missed the AP Top 25 rankings after its 4-0 start to the 2022 campaign. They have an opportunity to jump into the rankings with a win over Iowa State this weekend. Matt Campbell’s cyclones are hoping to avoid an 0-2 start to Big 12 play.
