NCAA Football: Baylor at Duke Mark Dolejs-USA TODAY Sports

Baylor takes on Duke at 2:30 in McLane Stadium. The game airs on FS1.

The Bears are now a four point favorite on most books.

Cheap seats are available for $7 on StubHub. There are also some student tickets still available.

Uniforms:

The Bears will wear green-gray-green today. The Bears wore that combination in the Cactus Bowl victory over Boise State.

Prediction:

Duke is without their starting quarterback and best defensive back. The Bears have a tough challenge, but I think they get it done. I’d expect Charlie Brewer to secure the job today and have a big day with Denzel Mims.

I’m certainly worried Baylor is going to give up a few huge plays. The Bears have more talent and are healthy, minus Josh Malin. I’ll take Baylor 31-24.

Other Games:

A giant week for the Big 12.

At 11:00, Oklahoma travels to Ames to take on Iowa State.

Kansas is favored over a power five team! The Jayhawks take on Rutgers at 11:00. That airs on Fox Sports Midwest.

At 2:30, Oklahoma State hosts Boise State. That’s on ESPN.

Kansas State looks to rebound after getting thrashed by Mississippi State. They take on UTSA at 3:00.

At 3:15, Houston heads to Lubbock. Fox has that one.

TCU has a chance to help the Big 12’s perception at 7:00 against Ohio State. That’s the ABC game of the week.

Finally, at 7:00, Texas hosts USC. That’s Fox’s game of the week.

Outside of the Big 12, Vanderbilt-Notre Dame is at 1:30 on NBC. At 2:30, it’s LSU-Auburn on CBS. And Alabama-Ole Miss is at 6:00 on ESPN.

We’ll keep this thread as the open thread until Baylor’s game. Then I’ll throw up a thread for that one.
