While Baylor leads the entire FBS in scoring at 57.4 points per game, Oklahoma is No. 16 overall in points allowed at 18.1 per game, and the Sooners have played a tougher schedule than the Bears going into Week 11. 

The Sooners are the better team according to the FPI, but they're 3-point road dogs (–120) at press time for this contest. Baylor will be starting freshman and blue-chip quarterback Jarrett Stidham for just the second time in place of the injured Seth Russell, who's out for the year with a fractured neck.

Stidham played well last week against the Kansas State Wildcats, but the Bears dropped the cash as 17.5-point road favorites in a 31-24 victory.

Oklahoma, meanwhile, ranks No. 1 on ESPN's Football Power Index, one spot ahead of Baylor. Since their surprise loss to the Texas Longhorns (+17 on neutral ground) in the Red River Showdown, the Sooners have pummeled their last four opponents by a combined score of 232-50.
