Two divergent teams face-off when undefeated 3rd-ranked Oklahoma visits Waco to face the winless Baylor Bears. The NCAA football line favors the Sooners by 27.5-points versus the Bears. Kick-off is this Saturday, September 23rd at 6:30 PM ET on FS1 from the McLane Stadium in Waco, Texas.
The Sooners are winners of their first three by an average margin of 35 points. Included in that is a game in which Oklahoma went to Ohio State and handed the then-No. 2 Buckeyes a 31-16 defeat.
Baylor has fallen from a Big 12 championship contender after a sex-scandal that left the Bears out in the cold for a season. Now they are an 0-3 team without the talent to recover.
