No. 24 Oklahoma St. (7-4, 5-3 Big 12) at Baylor (6-5, 3-5), noon (FX)

Line: Oklahoma State by 4

Series Record: Oklahoma St. 18-12

WHAT'S AT STAKE

Oklahoma State can still finish third alone in the Big 12 with a win over the Bears and a Texas loss at Kansas State. Baylor is trying to win at least seven games in three consecutive seasons for the first time since 1949-51, and is already set for its third consecutive bowl trip.

KEY MATCHUP

Baylor QB Nick Florence vs. Oklahoma State secondary. Florence is the FBS leader with 390 total yards a game, and leads the Big 12 with 348 yards passing per game. He threw for 396 yards and three TDs without an interception last week against Texas Tech. The Cowboys gave up 512 yards passing last week, including 500 to Oklahoma's Landry Jones, who is second to Florence in the Big 12 with 341 yards per game.

PLAYERS TO WATCH

Oklahoma State: RB Joseph Randle is the Big 12's leading rusher averaging 110 yards per game — nobody else averages more than 75 yards per game. He has seven 100-yard games, is averaging 5.2 yards per carry and is seventh among all active players with 40 career rushing touchdowns.
