Back in July, I picked every game involving every Big 12 team. I picked Oklahoma State to be 5-0 after the first five games of the season.

There are only four Big 12 games this week with Oklahoma State and West Virginia both having bye weeks. The big game is the Red River Rivalry in Dallas between Oklahoma and Texas.
For the second time in a span of four weeks the Oklahoma State coaches have the chance to hit the road recruiting. OSU has 22 verbal commitments with a couple of possible opportunities to count back players that can enroll at midterm. This week is also a time where coaches will get out to watch players that are already verbally committed in the Cowboys' class.
