Our series of preseason picks for every single Big 12 game of 2014 continues today with Week 14, which features a Thanksgiving night showdown in Austin and another high-profile game at AT&T Stadium.

More Big 12 predictions for 2014.

at Texas Longhorns 24, TCU Horned Frogs 14: Charlie Strong's first season in the Big 12 ends on a high note with a victory over the always-tricky Horned Frogs. A pick-six from Quandre Diggs on his senior night is the highlight of a dominant night for the Longhorn defense, and a fitting finish for Texas' solid turnaround on that side of the ball in 2014.

West Virginia Mountaineers 37, at Iowa State Cyclones 34: Dana Holgorsen ensures his job safety for another season with a good, tough win over an Iowa State team that isn't nearly as bad as its record suggests. Mario Alford and Kevin White both surpass 1,000 receiving yards on the season after big showings against the Cyclone secondary.

at Kansas State Wildcats 35, Kansas Jayhawks 13: Kansas State sets up an intense, high-stakes final week for the Big 12 with an easy win over the Jayhawks, whose frustrating season has finally come to an end. Jake Waters has never looked sharper, throwing for three touchdowns and rushing for another himself. Ben Heeney somehow finishes the year with a school-record 207 tackles.

Baylor Bears 56, Texas Tech Red Raiders 52 (in Arlington, Texas): Last year, Texas Tech blew up Baylor in the first quarter but quickly ran out of gas. This time, Davis Webb gets his chance and keeps the Bears sweating for four quarters. A defensive bust and a 45-yard touchdown run for BU's Johnny Jefferson midway through the fourth is the difference-maker in an extremely even ballgame.
