Oklahoma State Cowboys College Football Betting

The Oklahoma State Cowboys have some unfinished business in the 2022 season. Last year the Cowboys lost a heartbreaker on the goal line to the Baylor Bears in the Big 12 championship game. Following that thriller, the Cowboys rebounded with a Fiesta Bowl win over the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. It was one of the greatest wins and seasons in OSU history. But head coach Mike Gundy wants it all. He leads a program determined to finish as Big 12 champions come December. On Saturday, they have a revenge rematch against the Baylor Bears.

Oklahoma State Cowboys Weekly Matchup

On Saturday, October 1, 2022, the Baylor Bears of the Big 12 Conference will host the Oklahoma State Cowboys of the Big 12 Conference. Kickoff time at McLane Stadium in Waco, Texas, is 3:30 p.m. ET, with television coverage on FOX.

The Cowboys and Bears are two of the most respected brands in the Big 12 Conference. Oklahoma State is a proven winner under Gundy. In fact, Gundy is the most successful coach in program history. Baylor is a “new money” program that rose to prominence over the past decade. And under Aranda's leadership, the Bears are expected to stay in the Big 12 championship conversation. So both brands are strong. Oklahoma State will appeal to sharps based on the better price as the quality road team. At the same time, Baylor is a natural play for casuals as a quality home chalk.
