Oklahoma's march to another Big 12 championship starts with a three-game stretch against quality opponents, beginning with a home matchup with Baylor.

The Sooners have won six games in a row since starting the season 1–2, all but eliminating their chances at the College Football Playoff. Oklahoma beat Iowa State 34–24 last Thursday, their 18th straight win over the Cyclones.

Oklahoma is expecting their top two tailbacks to play on Saturday. Samaje Perine has missed the last three game with a muscle injury and Joe Mixon is back after missing the Iowa State game because of a suspension.

Baylor will be without their all-time leading rusher Shock Linwood, who was suspended for reportedly shoving a graduate assistant during a 62–22 blowout loss to TCU. It was the Bears second straight loss after a 6–0 start to the season.

Oklahoma won last season's matchup 44–34 on their way to the Big 12 title, but the team's have split the last four matchups.
