by Berry Tramel and Jenni Carlson and John Helsley and Gina Mizell Published: November 30, 2012

Here is a look at how our coverage crew picked Saturday's OSU vs. Baylor game:


* Baylor 37, OSU 34: Terrible spot for OSU, and against one of the nation's best offenses.


* OSU 45, Baylor 35: The Bears are way more dangerous than they looked even a month ago. But the OSU offense just keeps clickin' along.

GINA MIZELL, OSU beat writer

* OSU 48, Baylor 37: Brodrick Brown or Justin Gilbert finally snags their first interception of the season. Who knew that would be a bold prediction in August?

JOHN HELSLEY, OSU beat writer

* OSU 48, Baylor 38: Bears can and will score, but they can't slow the Cowboys ... at all.

SCOTT WRIGHT, OSU recruiting

* OSU 55, Baylor 35: Bedlam hangover? No, more like bounce-back time. A big day for Clint Chelf and some crucial takeaways for the Cowboy defense.

MIKE BALDWIN, Beat Baldwin

* OSU 38, Baylor 31: The Bears' defense has improved, but OSU's defense still better, which is the difference.
