    Two of the three biggest games being on Thursday takes a little steam out of the weekend, but at least they're not all on at the same time like we've had in some past weeks.

    I see Oregon pummeling Stanford, by three touchdowns at least. Cardinal offense ranges from conservative to nonexistent.

    The lines for the three big games:

    Oklahoma (+14.5) at Baylor

    Oregon (-10.5) at Stanford

    LSU (+11.5) at Alabama

    EDIT: To fix location of Oregon-Stanford.

    I'm not a bettor, but boy, that Oklahoma line seems a bit high.

    Should be a much closer game than that.

    Speaking of three touchdowns, that's how much Oregon was favored by last year when the two played in Eugene.
    That said, I do think the Ducks will win Thursday. Stanford struggled with UW, a team Oregon pulled away from in the second half. Plus there is Stanford's loss to Utah. I'm thinking Oregon by 7 to 10 points.

    Oklahoma can't stop anyone.

    56-35 Bears.

    Still have a hard time wrapping my head around the 180 authored by Art Briles at Baylor.

    - 85 losses in their first 96 Big XII games.
    - 33 years since being ranked this high. Keep in mind before RGIII, the Bears hadn't been ranked at all in the AP since '93
    - 16 years (1995-2001) between a winning record in conference
    - 16 years (1994-2010) between bowl games
    - Among the worst facilities in all of major college football. The current AD, who arrived from UMass, said the Minutemen had better surroundings.

    Baylor = the biggest turnaround in college football since...?

    Certainly comparable to Oregon State under Riley and Dennis Erickson, or Northwestern under that douchebag who ruined Colorado.

    ESPN says the Nov. 16 Boise State at Wyoming game in Laramie will start at 8:15 p.m. local time. Should be lovely at 7,220 feet. Once again tail wags dog, and money trumps common sense.

    I'm going to have to see how Baylor stacks up against someone decent before jumping on that bandwagon. I figure Baylor-Oklahoma is no more than a 10-point game either way.

    Game is scheduled in Boise. But your point is still valid. Awful late start in potentially poor weather. I preferred the old days, where most games were played before the sun went down.
