Wisdom of the Crowds: Week Nine

Yesterday on Twitter, I wondered whether Mizzou fan biases would be more powerful than Mizzou fans' fears of Oklahoma in the voting for their Week Eight matchup.  The verdict: Mizzou fans are more beaten down by losses to Oklahoma than they are optimistic homers for the upcoming season.  Mystery solved.

  • Baylor def. Kansas State by 7 (74.1%)
  • Nebraska def. Oklahoma State by 8 (78.8%)
  • Oklahoma def. Missouri by 10 (57.4%)
  • Texas Tech def. Colorado by 10 (84.1%)
  • Texas A&M def. Kansas by 15 (92.9%)
  • Texas def. Iowa State by 24 (99.1%)

The South goes 5-1 against the North this week, opening up a relatively ridiculous 8-game lead in the combined standings.  This isn't new, obviously, but ... just reporting the facts.

Your standings:

Team Conf. Rec. Record Pt. Diff.

Week Nine picks after the jump. Here comes another test of Mizzou fan biases...
