Your Big 12 scheduling guide for the weekend

Should be a smooth weekend for the conference teams, filled with plenty of blowouts. Here’s a scheduling guide for the interested viewer:

Marshall at #11 West Virginia – 11 a.m. – FX

Nice little Saturday morning wake-up call to prepare for the rest of the night’s action. Dana and the Mountaineers’ first game as a Big 12 opponent. And to make things a little more intriguing, Holgorsen heard Marshall may have been studying his hand signals and told the media, “I have one really good one they can memorize.”

Tulsa at Iowa State – 2:30 p.m. – FSN

From a competitive standpoint, this is the best Big 12 game this weekend. In all likelihood, it’s the only one where a conference team might stumble. Tulsa is slight road favorites over the Cyclones, but this is a toss-up.

South Dakota State at Kansas – 6 p.m.

You won’t be able to watch this one on TV. That’s probably a good thing.

Northwestern State at Texas Tech – 6 p.m. – FSSW+

Tech should win.

Savannah State at #19 Oklahoma State – 6 p.m. – FCS

We all know how bad this one is going to be. Wes Lunt should be in the locker room after halftime, resting and watching Arizona tape.

Missouri State at #22 Kansas State – 6 p.m.

Wyoming at #15 Texas – 7 p.m. – Longhorn Network

Everyone wants to see how the quarterbacks rotate and perform. David Ash will start. Case McCoy should get some run. But against Wyoming, we won’t learn much.

#4 Oklahoma at UTEP – 9:30 p.m. – FSN

Late kickoff in El Paso, but shouldn’t take long for the Sooners to take control. I’m pumped to get a look at Trey Metoyer.

SMU at Baylor – Sunday at 5:30 p.m. – FSN

Life after RGIII begins on a Sunday afternoon.

Two other games of state interest 

Toledo at Arizona – 9:30 p.m. – ESPNU

This sets up nicely for the Pokes. Jump out to a 60-point halftime lead. Keep the starters in the locker room to rest and make popcorn. Then enjoy a postgame film session on ESPNU.

Florida A&M at Tennessee State – 6 p.m.

No TV for any interested Sooner fans. No reason for the Sooners to waste time watching tape.
