TweetBaylor is coming off a season when they finished first in the Big 12 in total offense (572 yards/gm) and second in scoring offense (44.5 pts/gm) which nearly mirrored the stats from 2011 when they had a Heisman trophy winner in Robert Griffin running the offense.

Tostitos Fiesta Bowl Preview http://ballhyped.com/2013/01/03/tostitos-fiesta-bowl-preview/ Thu, 03 Jan 2013 19:58:57 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2013/01/03/tostitos-fiesta-bowl-preview/

TweetLet's get right to the down and dirty in this year's Fiesta Bowl. Can Kansas State's defense slow down Oregon's scoring machine? Only one team has been able to do it and that was Stanford in their 17-14 victory over Oregon on November 17th. The Ducks scored at least 40 points in every other game […]

Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl preview: TCU vs. Michigan State http://ballhyped.com/2012/12/29/buffalo-wild-wings-bowl-preview-tcu-vs-michigan-state/ Sat, 29 Dec 2012 08:39:51 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/12/29/buffalo-wild-wings-bowl-preview-tcu-vs-michigan-state/

TweetMichigan State enters Saturday night's Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl with a 6-6 record and didn't lock up bowl eligibility until their final game of the season when they beat Minnesota, 26-10. All told, it was a rather disappointing season for the Spartan's who were expected to contend for the Big Ten title entering the season. […]

TweetIt wasn't easy and it took a defensive stand with TCU in the red zone during the game's final minute, but Oklahoma prevailed, 24-17, giving the Sooners at least a share of the Big 12 crown. Oklahoma will now - believe it or not - have to cheer on Texas tonight. If the Longhorns can […]

TweetThe news of the Big Ten adding two more teams this weekend came as a bit of a shock to anyone and everyone who thought conference realignment was going to take back seat for the time being. We should have known better. It also brought to the forefront that the Big 12 has a problem […]

West Virginia visits Oklahoma State: the preview http://ballhyped.com/2012/11/09/west-virginia-visits-oklahoma-state-the-preview/ Fri, 09 Nov 2012 19:46:18 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/11/09/west-virginia-visits-oklahoma-state-the-preview/

TweetThe Cowboys enter Saturday's reunion with former offensive coordinator, Dana Holgorsen, winners of three of their past four games since falling to Texas after a controversial late touchdown was allowed to stand. What's maybe the most remarkable aspect of the Cowboy's recent success is that they've been doing it having to play three different quarterbacks. […]

Tweet I was trying to figure out how to best describe the differences between these two teams so I popped open a thesaurus and typed in "opposite." The results: contrasted, diametrically opposed, different, and dissimilar. Whatever word you use, there aren't two offenses in the Big 12 more "diametrically opposed" that what you'll see on […]

TweetKansas head coach Charlie Weis talked this week about wanting to use the Kansas State program as a role model as he attempts to bring the Jayhawk program back from the dead. Today, he got a up close and personal look at what makes the Wildcats so good. They simply don't beat themselves. All the […]

TweetIt's game day. The grill is fired up. The deep-fat fryer is ready. The cooler is stocked. Remember that diet you had worked so hard at over the past week? Well, you can chuck that out the window and worry about getting back on track tomorrow. At least that's how 46% of fans responded in […]

TweetThe Lowdown: The Wildcats head to Norman looking to avenge one of their three loses from last season, and it was a bad one at that. The last time we saw these two teams on the same field, the Sooners were running up and down the field at Bill Snyder Family Stadium on their way […]

TweetWho are the favorites in week one you ask? The schedule isn't pretty for the Big 12 early on, but hey, any football is better than no football. Among the highlights, OU hits the road, West Virginia plays an in-state rival, and Baylor is on upset alert.

TweetThere's little question TCU is in for a rather large leap in competition when they open their first season in the Big 12 on September 8th. The Horned Frogs have proven they can play with the big boys on an individual game basis. They beat Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl to cap an undefeated 2010 […]
