Another weekend of Big XII football is approaching and there are a couple of ranked match-ups in the conference. 

4 TCU 7-0 (4-0) @ 25 Iowa State 5-2 (3-1) 3:30 PM ET ABC/ESPN2

After last weeks blowout win against Kansas, TCU visits a red hot Cyclone team, who has had their best start in a decade. Iowa State finally broke the top 25 after a eye opening win on the road at Texas Tech. It seems to me like TCU has more talent, but this Iowa State group has also showed talent, in Quarterback Kyle Kempt. TCU has got to be careful, for this could wreck their chances for the College Football Playoff.

My Pick: TCU 23 ISU 26

 11 Oklahoma State 6-1 (3-1) @ 22 West Virginia 5-2 (3-1) 12:00 ET ABC

This game features the premier quarterbacks in the Big 12 as well as the 2 best offenses. Will Grier has really made a name for himself with a 26:4 TD to INT ratio as well as Mason Rudolph for Okla State having a 19:4 ratio. Both teams defenses has had their ups and downs and both are coming off sloppy wins against the bottom part of the conference. For both these teams, it's a must win for Big 12 championship game appearances.

My Pick: Ok State 43 WVU 46
