OU football: Baylor most one-sided series
Hope springs eternal for Baylor. Last Saturday, New Mexico State beat Fresno State 48-45.
What’s the big deal? New Mexico State never had beaten Fresno State. The Aggies were 0-17 against Fresno State.
And Saturday in Waco, Baylor tries to do the same. Beat a school it never has beaten in football. The Bears are 0-20 against OU, which ranks as the most one-sided series in major college football, depending on your parameters. LSU is 22-0 vs. Louisiana-Lafayette, but the Cajuns play at a lower level than LSU in the SEC. OU and Baylor are conference brothers.
I researched one-sided series. Here are the rivalries at least 20 games old in which one school has won just once: Penn State 35-1-1 vs. Maryland; Tennessee 22-1 vs. Memphis; Arizona State 20-1 vs. Colorado State; Ole Miss 20-1-2 vs. Arkansas State.
Here are the rivalries with just two victories by one side: Alabama 35-2-1 vs. Kentucky; Penn State 22-2 vs. Rutgers; California 22-2-1 vs. Nevada.
Here are the rivalries with just three victories by one side: Oregon 52-3-4 vs. Idaho; Minnesota 22-3-1 vs. Iowa State; West Virginia 18-3 vs. East Carolina.
Here are the rivalries with just four victories by one side: Miami 23-4 vs. Boston College; Texas 22-4 vs. Oklahoma State; Texas Tech 26-4-2 vs. Arizona; Tulane 20-4 vs. Louisiana-Lafayette.
I also looked at all oft-played rivalries with one opponent having at least an .800 winning percentage against the other. Interestingly, OSU is on the wrong end of three: Texas, OU (82-16-7) and Nebraska (37-5-1). To me, that’s another sign of how far Mike Gundy has taken the Cowboy program, to reach No. 2 in the nation with a history like that.
