WHAT'S AT STAKE
Oklahoma State needs a win to remain a contender for the College Football Playoff. The Cowboys can clinch at least a share of the Big 12 title with a win. Baylor still has an outside shot at the playoff and needs a win to remain in the running for the Big 12 championship.
Baylor pass protection vs. Oklahoma State defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah. Baylor has one of the best offensive lines in college football, but the 6-foot-4, 275-pound Ogbah is among the nation's best at pressuring passers. He is the nation's active career sacks leader with 26. He has 11 sacks, 17 quarterback hurries and 15 1/2 tackles for loss. Baylor must keep him away from freshman quarterback Jarrett Stidham.
PLAYERS TO WATCH
Baylor: WR Corey Coleman. He leads the nation in yards receiving per game and tops the nation with 20 touchdown grabs, but Oklahoma held him to three catches for 51 yards last week, and he failed to reach the end zone for the first time this season. He'll be looking to bounce back.
Oklahoma State: WR James Washington. He is averaging 20.5 yards on his 40 catches. He had 200 yards against Texas Tech, scored three touchdowns against TCU and had six catches for 103 yards in the first half against Kansas.
