Big 12 Wrap: Week 9

It’s time for my pithy review of this week’s Big 12 action. In Week 9, it’s still the Big One and Little Eleven, even though Texas Tech made it interesting. Here are the games:

Texas 35, Texas Tech 31
For the second week in a row, Texas has to win one late. How about that defense pitching a shutout in the second half? Not bad.

Oklahoma 26, Missouri 10
The underdog Sooners grab a tough road win as the underdog, by playing tough defense and making timely plays. Allen Patrick’s 162 yards on 36 carries helped Oklahoma dominate time of possession. Not always pretty, but effective.

Oklahoma State 41, Nebraska 29
One week after nearly beating Texas and appearing to be on the way back, Nebraska lays a big turd in Stillwater, OK.

Texas A&M 31, Baylor 21
Another boost to the record for A&M, but Coach Fran’s not getting paid millions to beat Baylor. That’s expected. The next few games will make or break the season.

Kansas 20, Colorado 15
These two teams are not good.

Kansas State 31, Iowa State 10
There two teams also are not good. Time to start the Dan McCarney death watch?
