    Texas (2-2) @ Iowa State (1-2), 6:30PM Thursday: Opened at Texas -7.5, already at Texas -9

    Texas Tech (4-0) @ Kansas (2-1), 11:00AM Saturday: No line yet

    Kansas State (2-2) @ Oklahoma State (3-1), 2:30PM Saturday: Opened at OSU -14, already at OSU -15

    TCU (2-2) @ Oklahoma (4-0), 6:00PM Saturday: Opened at Oklahoma -10, already at Oklahoma -10.5

    West Virginia (3-2) @ Baylor (3-0); 7:00PM Saturday: Opened at Baylor -21, already at Baylor -27.5

    That is a huge line in the WVU game.

    They do seem to have an uncanny ability to bring teams down to their level.

    Give me Okie State, bounce back and score run up over a mediocre K St team.

    I would have no problem taking Baylor -27.5. I imagine this line will move up to the Baylor -31 range by the end of the week. West Virginia is a bad football team, one fluke win doesn't change that.

    But WV will be the best team Baylor faces to date. Baylor will win, but Id take those points.

    WV may be marginally better than Buffalo but not by much. WV is not good and I hate taking points against teams like Baylor and Oregon unless I feel like the opponent has a chance to win.

    I expected a line closer to 14 for ISU-Texas.

    WVU on the road against Baylor? That's got 40 pt. blowout written all over it.

    Don't forget that WVU played OU tough in addition to the OSU win.

    That was before OU switched to Bell. ULM also held OU in check while Knight was at QB. I think WV defense isn't terrible but their offense certainly can't keep up with Baylor's and Baylor's defense is much improved over last year.

    Interesting that our game is viewed as the most competitive of the week. Would have thought TCU-OU.

    ISU with the lowest spread to cover? Dang... that surprises me, especially because we are 1-9 vs. Texas all time, and haven't looked that great this year.

    I would take WVU to cover all day in that one. 27.5 pts is a ridiculous spread!

    Good thing I'm a poor college graduate who didn't own anything anyways.
