Big 12 Slate Week 4 Predictions
The Baylor Bears come into this game 3-0, but with wins over UTSA, Texas Southern and Kansas, it’s unclear how good this team is. Most people expect the defense to be good enough for the Bears under Dave Aranda, but Gerry Bohanon and offense keep this team buzzing.
They get a big step forward in the competition because they welcome the no. 14 Iowa State Cyclones in a rematch of a game Baylor nearly won last year.
Baylor took a 24-10 lead to start the third quarter before the Cyclones scored the next 21 points to take a 31-24 lead before the fourth. Iowa State rose 38-24 and while Charlie Brewer and the Bears were able to react to make it a one-scoring game, there was nothing more they could do in the final eight minutes of the game as Iowa State clung to it. in advance.
Iowa State is still one of the best teams in the conference despite losing to Iowa. Brock Purdy is a seasoned quarterback and Breece Hall is arguably the best running back in the conference.
However, Baylor’s defense is no joke. They thwarted some of the Big 12’s best offensives last year, including Oklahoma’s, and should provide a tough test for the Cyclones.
The big question in this Big 12 list is whether Baylor’s offense can continue to produce against a tough Iowa State team. I think they will, but Iowa State can take the win again in this game.
