Robert Griffin III leads the Baylor Bears against the Oklahoma Sooners in a prime time matchup. Can he pull off the upset?
Will the 20th time be the game when the Baylor Bears defeat the Oklahoma Sooners? After four contests over the 1970s and the 1980s, all of which Oklahoma won, the Bears have lost all 15 games the two schools have played in as part of the Big 12.
This game is in prime time since the Bears are led by exciting quarterback and Hesiman Trophy hopeful Robert Griffin III. Baylor fans are excited with the overall offense this season and believe that an upset is possible. However, they'll need to overcome a solid Oklahoma defense and cause turnovers.
Oklahoma, for its part, has recovered from a loss to Texas Tech and looking forward to the regular season finale against the Oklahoma St. Cowboys. However, this game won't slip by them. The Sooners are without running back Dominique Whaley and wide receiver Ryan Broyles, but Oklahoma fans believe pounding the ball on the ground and having quarterback Landry Jones look to his entire receiving corps will pace the way to victory.
