I'll say this for Rock M'ers: they're bound and determined not to make the same mistake twice. A year after woefully underestimating Oklahoma State, it appears we've moved to almost overestimating them. The 'Pokes are now 6-0, having won at both College Station and Austin (a win that would be their first there since 1944). We'll see, I guess.

Another building storyline: the Big 12 North teams not named Mizzou are a combined 0-9 in conference with average loss of 17 points. Yikes. That streak will end in Week Eight, however, as Kansas hosts Kansas State. Hmm, I wonder which team Rock M'ers will pick in that one...

Week Seven Results:

  • Oklahoma State (63%) > Texas by 8
  • Texas Tech (78%) > Kansas State by 10
  • Texas A&M (84%) > Baylor by 10
  • Missouri (99%) > Iowa State by 17
  • Oklahoma (99%) > Kansas by 34

Only four games are on the docket this week (Texas and Baylor are off). Two pit 3-0 and 2-1 teams, but it's pretty clear what the marquee matchup will be: OSU's first trip to Columbia since that dreadful October night in 2008.
