Another week that was just OK.

What was I thinking when I picked Texas Tech to beat Texas? Your guess is as good as mine.

Last week: 3-2 (.600)

Overall: 45-14 (.763)

Off: Oklahoma, Iowa State

No. 16 Texas 34, Missouri 30: The Longhorns are picking up speed and quality backs in recent weeks. They also still have a pretty salty defense. Manny's crew is the difference in this one. The Tigers have a late chance to rally for a comeback, but the Texas running game comes through with a game-clinching first down to officially put Missouri's backs against the wall: They'll need two wins for bowl eligibility with two games remaining.

No. 2 Oklahoma State 56, Texas Tech 31: Not buying the upset potential here. Texas Tech's defense is a long way from anything acceptable, and the Cowboys saw what happened to Oklahoma. Motivation and focus won't be issues, especially in a road game with the promise of a showdown against Oklahoma so close. Oklahoma State rolls easily.

No. 25 Baylor 58, Kansas 17: Robert Griffin III was adamant this week about keeping his team focused and making it clear this game won't be easy. Because of that, it will be. Time for a repeat of last year. Kansas' offense will pick it up against a suspect Baylor defense, but the Bears' offense is far too much. Huge day for RG3.

No. 14 Kansas State 27, Texas A&M 24: Tough, tough pick here. But once again, the ranked Wildcats are the underdogs at home against a team with superior talent. Give me the team with more consistency and superior discipline. This will be frustrating for the Aggies.
