This is how you get people to a ballgame:
- Baylor is looking for statement victory against the Sooners, writes the Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Jimmy Burch. Baylor's high-powered offense rises above all defensive tricks, in the opinion of The Oklahoman's Berry Tramel. If you're going to the game tonight, you better get there early.
- The Sooners know they have to hit the ground running, reports the Norman Transcript's John Shinn. The Sooners might have found a replacement for FB Trey Millard. Unfortunately for them, he won't arrive in Norman until next year. OU also added a future home-and-home date with UCLA.
- The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Stephen J. Nesbitt profiles West Virginia kicker Josh Lambert, who kicked the game-winning field goal to beat TCU in overtime last week.
- The Longhorns are preparing for a cold reception in Morgantown. The return of Texas-Texas A&M football rivalry still sounds remote, despite Texas' regime change at athletic director.
- The Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Randy Galloway says that TCU coach Gary Patterson is no longer the flavor of the fall. Injuries could force the Horned Frogs to reshuffle their secondary this weekend.
- Patience is paying off for Iowa State running back DeVondrick Nealy, writes the Des Moines Register's Tommy Birch.
- The stakes are similar for Kansas State and Texas Tech this weekend, the Kansas City Star's Kellis Robinett details. K-State coach Bill Snyder is gunning for his 175th career win. The Red Raiders are seeking to stop their two-game skid.
- The Oklahoma State defense is making a statement, writes The Oklahoman's John Helsley. The paper's Gina Mizell profiles Derek Branson, who has gone from unknown walk-on to impact playmaker for the Pokes. Oklahoma State added a future home-and-home date with Pittsburgh.
- The Jayhawks are focused on the finish, according to Lawrence Journal-World's Matt Tait.
