(6) Baylor (7 - 0) 57 @ Kansas State (3 - 4) 20: I'm sure the Bears will react to what I'm sure coach Art Briles will describe as a snub from the playoff committee especially after many experts, me included, had Baylor positioned in the top two. It doesn't really matter that much, because their schedule gets significantly tougher the rest of the way and they'll be able to play their way in if they run the table. They won't get much opposition in this one.
(20) Mississippi State (6 - 2) 23 @ Missouri (4 - 4) 13: Missouri's defense has been solid this season, but they're only averaging 15 points a game. In this era of college football, a team isn't going to win many contests with that low total. Missouri's star QB Maty Mauck has been suspended for the rest of the season, so the third worst offense in the country could actually have gotten worse, as if that's possible. I expect this to be a low scoring game and even though I'm not a big Missouri fan, their defense can keep them in the game and they have a chance if Mississippi State turns the ball over or lets the Tigers stay in the game into the fourth quarter.
