The Big 12 doesn’t feature any marquee games this week, so I’ll try and keep it short and simple. The game of the week is Texas Tech at Arkansas, with Louisiana Tech at Kansas State being the sleeper game of the week.
Here are my Big 12 Week 3 Picks:
Saturday, September 19
17 Tulsa at #16 Oklahoma 45
28 Louisiana Tech at Kansas State 31
Louisiana Tech played well against Western Kentucky last week and this isn’t the same Kansas State team that we saw last year, but the Wildcats are still a talented team and should pull out this win.
7 UTSA at #25 Oklahoma State 42
31 Texas Tech at Arkansas 35
Texas Tech has a very good offense, but their defense will struggle to stop the Arkansas running game which will prove to tough for the Red Raiders.
35 California at Texas 28
The Longhorns have struggled defensively to start the season and I expect that trend to continue when the Golden Bears come to town.
13 SMU at #3 TCU 49
14 Iowa State at Toledo 17
