Big 12 primer: Week 11
Those, among others, will be the storylines to watch in Week 11 of the Big 12:
TCU at Iowa State, 11 a.m. CT (FS1): Both teams are ailing, both mentally and physically. TCU has lost three in a row, including an overtime loss to West Virginia last week. Iowa State has dropped five straight. The Horned Frogs need to win this to keep their slim bowl hopes alive. Iowa State can’t go to a bowl, but need wins to build for next year.
Kansas State at No. 25 Texas Tech, 11 a.m. CT (ABC): Since 2011, Texas Tech is just 1-8 in the month of November. To halt that slide, the Red Raiders will have to hold off one of the hottest teams in the Big 12. K-State is coming off back-to-back routs of West Virginia and Iowa State,
Kansas at No. 14 Oklahoma State, 3 p.m. CT (FS1): The Cowboys are fresh off their biggest win of the season, a 52-34 win at Texas Tech. Oklahoma State has a showdown with the Longhorns looming next weekend, but needs to take care of Kansas. The Jayhawks have lost 26 straight Big 12 games, but hung tough last week in a 35-13 loss at Texas in which Kansas trailed only 14-6 well into the third quarter.
Texas at West Virginia, 6 p.m. CT (FOX): The Longhorns have reeled off five in a row, but they’ve been shaky on the road. Texas lost 40-21 at BYU and edged out one-win Iowa State by a point in Ames. The Longhorns beat TCU 30-7, but there were thousands of Texas fans in Fort Worth. That won’t be the case in Morgantown, where West Virginia has been solid. At home, the Mountaineers knocked off Oklahoma State, then led Texas Tech by two scores before the Red Raiders rallied. West Virginia has plenty of momentum, too, after last week’s overtime win at TCU.
