Baylor Vs. Oklahoma 2012: Game Time, TV Schedule, Odds And More

Baylor tries to stay in the win column against the highly-ranked Oklahoma Sooners.

Sarah Glenn

The Baylor Bears, fresh off their first conference win of the season, will travel to Norman to play the No. 12 Oklahoma Sooners on Saturday.

Quarterback Nick Florence threw for 367 yards in a 41-14 win over the Kansas Jayhawks. That amount is actually less than Baylor's per-game passing average, which leads the nation at 392 yards per game -- but that is because the Bears amassed 299 yards on the ground as well. The win ended a four-game losing streak for the Bears, who also happen to sport the nation's worst total defense among non-provisional teams, surrendering 527 yards per game.

That spells bad news against the Oklahoma Sooners. Quarterback Landry Jones has completed 65% of his passes for 16 touchdowns for the country's 14th-best total offense. In addition to its offense, Oklahoma also sports a top-20 defense. The Sooners got back in the win column on Nov. 3 with a win against the Iowa State Cyclones. Sitting at second place in the Big 12 standings, Oklahoma must likely win out (in addition to getting help from Kansas State) for a shot to win the conference.

Oklahoma leads the all-time series between the two schools, 20-1, with Baylor's lone win coming in 2011.

Date/Time: Sat., Nov. 10, 2:30 p.m. CT

TV: Fox Sports Network

Odds: Oklahoma is favored by 20.5 points.
