Welcome back to another episode of the Big XII Country Podcast! This episode, We look back at the slate of games Saturday December 5th. We discuss: Texas' onslaught against the Wildcats and what does it mean in the next chapter of the Tom Herman Saga. Did Tech really need a 4th down stop to escape with a win vs Kansas??? Also is Matt Wells done already? In maybe the most surprising result of the weekend, the Cowboys come up short against TCU. Even after forcing 5 turnovers! ISU looks like an ABSOLUTE MACHINE right now! West Virginia was the latest victim of the super cell Cyclones. Is Brock Purdy playing his best football at exactly the perfect time, and why is the answer YES? Lastly in a game that was just sort of blah, we had a defensive battle in Norman between the Sooners and Bears. Does it mean anything in terms of the Sooners trying to close out their 6th straight Big 12 Title? Also we take stock of what Aranda has done at Baylor this year.
Welcome back to another episode of the Big XII Country podcast! This week we start by looking back at 2 absolute dismantling performances by ISU and OU over their opponents. Next we dive into the absolute biggest and most consequential game of the weekend, as the Cyclones and nations top rusher storm into Austin and look to hold serve atop the Big 12 standings over the hot and defensive minded Longhorns. So many intangibles to discuss in this game. Then we ask "What Oklahoma State team do we see this weekend?" as the Cowboys look to stay relevant in the Big 12 race against a feisty group from Lubbock. Might we see a Bedlam hangover? Next we look at an odd situation where you have the Bears at home as a CLEAR favorite over a KSU team that has clearly been the better team. Can the Bears pounce on the Wildcats and shock a lot of us, or does KSU show up mad after last week and put BU in their place? Last, with the OU vs WVU game postponed, we have the Horned Frogs rolling up to Lawrence as a 24.5 pt favorite, while only averaging 24 points a game. This one has low scoring battle written all over it. Can KU finally get a win and shock the world or does TCU handle their business? All this and so much more on this weeks Big XII Country Podcast! Thanks for listening!
Week 12 is here! Where has the season gone? We only have 2 games after the UT vs KU game cancellation, but they are 2 BIG ones! We breakdown the KSU vs ISU game and are split on the Bedlam game in Norman. Find out why and who will win on this weeks episode of the Big XII Country Podcast. Thanks for listening and see you soon!
welcome back! It was a wild Halloween weekend in the Big 12 and we break it all down. How good is ISU? Is KSU all but done? Has WVU thrown their hat in the ring as a contender? Did OSU swing the door open for many teams to have a shot at Arlington? Is Herman Safe and who is Texas? What happened in Lubbock and are we seeing the early signs that OU is on their way back to being a dominant program nationally, sooner rather than later? We answer all this and SO MUCH MORE! Thanks for listening you guy are the best.
Welcome back! This week I'm joined by a few new voices! After you meet them we dive into this weeks slate. ISU vs KU - Can KU do anything to win this game? Will ISU play down to its competiton? KSU vs WVU - We all agree this should be a pretty good game, but we are split on who takes the W. TCU vs Baylor - Its the next installment of the "Revivalry" only with a lot less offense than we are used to. Could this be the lowest scoring game of the season? Texas vs OSU - We had opinions ranging from OSU in a blow out, to Mike Gundy pulling the most Mike Gundy move ever and losing to a soon departing Tom Herman, as he relishes the underdog role. OU vs TTU - Most agree OU wins, but how they get there is anyone's guess. Thanks for listening and we will see you soon!
Its the weekend review after a REALLY light weekend. We look at the game between KU and WVU. Before that we discuss news and notes from around the conference.
