The Oklahoma Sooners remained in the No. 8 spot in the second College Football Playoff ranking and if they win out, they should have a good shot at cracking the top four. On the other hand, the Baylor Bears dropped to No. 13 following a loss. They will not be in contention for a Playoff spot down the stretch, but Baylor will need a win to give themselves a realistic shot at contending for a Big 12 Championship.

Oklahoma is coming off a bye week, but Baylor is returning home following a loss, so the situational edge could go either way. The Bears should cover this spread because of their defense. Baylor was gashed by the TCU Horned Frogs last weekend, but Dave Aranda is a defensive coach and should have the Bears ready to play in a spot where motivation will not be an issue. Oklahoma will enter the weekend with a defense ranked No. 96 in yards per play, and Baylor ranks No. 10 offensively in that category, so they should find plenty of success and cover this spread.
