The Baylor Bears are quickly climbing up the college football rankings and have a shot at making a big impression on the BCS National Championship picture. Their standing will be elevated even further if they can take down the ranked Oklahoma State Cowboys on the road. The Cowboys are also making some noise in the college football world as they recently took down Texas on the road and have a shot at giving Baylor their first loss of the season.
Baylor Bears at Oklahoma State Cowboys Odds
The college football odds for this game opened up with the Bears listed as (-10.5) point favorites due to their high octane offense. That number dropped with the first wave of betting and it can now be found as low as (-8). The betting on this game is nearly even with Baylor taking in just 51 percent of the wagering up to this point. This could change leading up to kickoff so make sure to check out the latest line at the top rated online sportsbooks.
The Bears still have a shot at playing for it all in the end. If Baylor earns wins over Oklahoma State, TCU and Texas in the final three weeks, it will at the very least be in its first BCS game as the conference champ. Could there be more? A lot of that depends on whether the Crimson Tide, Seminoles and Buckeyes end up undefeated, but it's worth pointing out that a trio of wins over Oklahoma State, Texas and Oklahoma (the Bears beat the Sooners 41-12 on Nov. 7) would hold its own against the top three wins that FSU and OSU would have earned by that point. They have to keep winning for any of this to happen.
