Week one in the Big 12 saw a couple of upsets, including two potential conference contenders losing at home. Neither Gallagher nor Matt saw Baylor’s head-scratching loss to Liberty, or Maryland’s convincing win at Texas. Gallagher also missed on his upset pick of Northern Iowa over Iowa State, while Matt tried his luck with Eastern Washington over Texas Tech to no avail. This week of college football has some marquee matchups and should be a lot of fun.

No. 11 Oklahoma State at South Alabama

Gallagher- Why Oklahoma State is traveling to South Alabama on a Friday night is beyond me. It seems like the Cowboys are asking for trouble. Still not optimistic about South Alabama’s chances. 49-14 OSU

Matt- South Alabama got thumbed by Ole’ Miss. This week will be worse for them. 63-20 OSU

Iowa at Iowa State

Gallagher- This would be a nice win for Iowa State, but the Cyclones lost this game 42-3 last year so I’ll roll with Iowa. 27-17 Iowa

Matt- Hawkeyes overlook Cyclones, who are playing at home. Upset 24-21 Iowa State

Charlotte at Kansas State

Gallagher- Still not sure how good K-State is, and this game won’t tell us anything new. 55-10 KSU

Matt- Another breather for K-State on their easy first half schedule. 52-17 KSU

East Carolina at West Virginia

Gallagher- West Virginia was impressive in a loss to Virginia Tech. The Mountaineers should have no problem with East Carolina, who dropped its home opener by 17 to James Madison. 45-10 WVU

Matt- I was recruited by ECU, that should tell you something! The Pirate ARRRR bad and this one is in Morgantown. 59-13 WVU

No. 23 TCU at Arkansas

Gallagher- The Frogs lost a double-overtime thriller to Arkansas last year. That should be all the motivation they need to take down Arkansas. 35-28 TCU

Matt- For Bret Bielema this year is win or get fired. You won’t smell a hog cooking after this one. 38-31 Arkansas

San Jose State at Texas

Gallagher- Tom Herman gets his first win at Texas a week later than expected. 38-10 Texas

Matt- San Jose State put a scare into former Texas coach Charlie Strong’s USF team early; they’ll do the same to Texas before they fade. 31-24 Texas

Central Michigan at Kansas

Gallagher- A year after Central Michigan stole a win from Oklahoma State, they lose on the road to Kansas. 28-24 Kansas

Matt- Last week’s joy fades fast in Lawrence. 24-20 Central Michigan

UTSA at Baylor

Gallagher- Surely Baylor won’t collapse two consecutive weeks. . . 31-20 Baylor

Matt- Baylor goes from bad to worse. 28-17 UTSA

No. 5 Oklahoma at No. 2 Ohio State

Gallagher- I don’t believe Oklahoma will fail to show up for this game like they did last year. Baker Mayfield should be the difference in this one. This will be a fun game either way. 37-31 OU

Matt- The life of Riley lasts one game for the Sooners. 105,000+ fans will rock the horseshoe in a Buckeyes win. 35-21 OSU
