SoonerNation Picks: Oklahoma at Baylor

November, 18, 2011
Oklahoma 49, Baylor 21
Even without Ryan Broyles, the Sooners put the points against a shaky Baylor defense, Landry Jones has a big day through the air. The defense gives up some big plays to Robert Griffin III early, but shores up in the second half.

Pick to click: Last year, a true freshman (Roy Finch) emerged to spark the OU offense late in the season. Saturday, another true freshman, wideout Kameel Jackson, gives the Sooners a spark out of the slot in place of Broyles.

Roy Finch will be a bigger part of Oklahoma's offense without Ryan Broyles and Dominique Whaley.

Oklahoma 35, Baylor 21
Three turnovers limit the Bears effectiveness as the Sooners speed gives Griffin problems. Ronnell Lewis and Frank Alexander set up a second home in Baylor's backfield, limiting the big play opportunities for Kendall Wright. Offensively, the loss of Broyles is felt throughout the game until fourth quarter touchdowns from Kenny Stills and Finch help put the game away.

Pick to click: Linebacker Corey Nelson has been relatively quiet in OU's recent games but has one of the best games of his career with three tackles for loss, two sacks and one forced fumble.

Oklahoma 37, Baylor 23
Another big road game and another big outing by the Sooners. OU has found the ability to get up for the big road games this season and with Baylor being ranked No. 22, expect that to continue Saturday night. The Sooners solve Griffin in the second half to pick up the victory.

Pick to click: Finch's continues his emergence in the second half of the season. While all the talk will be about how OU replaces Broyles, Finch is going to have the best game of his career.
