    My Big 12 Predictions

    I went through each teams schedule and predicted their seasons wins and losses. A couple of things:

    I would not be surprised at all to see Oklahoma and Missouri undefeated headed into the championship game. I think Texas's young secondary gets exposed against Chase Daniel. If both of these teams go undefeated they will be playing for a shot to play either USC or Ohio St in the championship game (depending on who wins in week 3).

    I only have 3 teams under .500. I would expect 4 to be, but wasn't sure who else. Either ISU, Colorado, or Nebraska with a slight slight chance at Kansas.

    I have two big upsets. One is Nebraska over Virginia Tech. It is in Lincoln and Nebraska should be flying high after a 3-0 start. That place will be jumpin and I expect VA Tech to be a notch below where they normally are.

    I also have Colorado over West Virginia. Call me crazy, but I have a feeling on this one. I think Colorado can do to WV what Pittsburgh did to them last year. Plus @Colorado is never easy. I am just a big believer in what Hawkins is doing at CU.

    I gave us wins against Iowa, UNLV, and A&M. All toss ups for me. You could mix those in with losses against Kansas and Nebraska which I think are very winnable. I expect 6 wins this season and am predicting 7 through my Cyclone glasses

    I think a Kansas win at home has a better chance than Nebraska, just because of the match-ups we will see. For some reason UNLV seems to be giving us fits the last couple of years. A win there would be huge for morale! Other than that I think that is a very in depth Big 12 North breakdown.

    I can see that. I think Nebraska is a better chance for a W just b/c they have a first year head coach. Mangino is a really good coach who has had time to put his system in there. They have a QB who understands the system very well. Nebraska has a lot of talent on offense and a great RB who will give us problems

    Re: My Big 12 Predictions

    I don't think there is anyway that Oklahoma can go undefeated. They play down in too many games, and they play lots of teams who can beat a "down" OU team. The biggest chances at losses being, KU right after Texas, TT usually does good against OU, and at Washington. That's right I am calling it now, OU will lose to Washington.

    I would be happy though if the records would turn out like that though.

    OU will beat Washington by 28. I can see them losing but I think this is their best COMPLETE team in a while. Great RB's and a very good QB. Their 2 toughest games are against Texas and Texas Tech who has beat them 2 out of the last 3 years. But the game is at OU. Also don't give Kansas much of a chance to beat OU
