This Saturday, November 14 at 8:00 p.m. ET, the Oklahoma Sooners will travel to Waco, Texas to play the hosting Baylor Bears. The Big 12 conference matchup at the home field of the undefeated Baylor team will certainly be one of the most exhilarating games this weekend.
The Big 12 has TV broadcast contracts with FOX and ABC/ESPN for the next ten years for its college football games. This week, Oklahoma vs. Baylor will be shown on ABC’s main channel in primetime. ABC rightly chose one of the best games of the week for its primetime slot and fans of both teams are surely hoping the game lives up to its hype. Previously, it may have been difficult to watch the game live online on ABC this weekend if you did not have cable. Thankfully, there are now legal and simple options for you to not only watch this game, but tons of college football online. Read on to find out about how you can watch Oklahoma vs. Baylor live online or on your TV this weekend!
Oklahoma Sooners vs Baylor Bears Preview
Last year, Baylor and Oklahoma had slightly different seasons with similar ends. Oklahoma underperformed to an 8-4 record and was trounced 40-6 by Clemson in the Russell Athletic Bowl. Baylor had an impressive year, ending with an 11-2 record and being ranked 7th in the AP Poll. However, they lost a close game to Michigan State in the Cotton Bowl after blowing a 20-point lead in the 4th quarter.
Oklahoma has seemingly bounced back this year, as it has been ranked in the top 20 every week of the season. It has wins over both Tennessee and West Virginia who were ranked at the time, but its successes have been slightly offset by a disappointing loss to unranked Texas in October. It goes into the game against Baylor ranked 12th and would likely break the top 10 with a victory. After Baylor, it has a difficult road ahead playing 13th ranked TCU and 5th ranked Oklahoma State to close out its season. It will be a difficult few weeks for Sooner fans, but the payoff will likely be amazing if they can win out this season.
Baylor has continued its dominance this season, with only one game being decided by less than 24 points, a 7-point win last week over Kansas State. It has not yet faced a ranked opponent, but its impressive performance has rightly earned its number 4 ranking in the AP Poll. Like Oklahoma it has its biggest trials ahead of it with games against Oklahoma State, TCU, and Texas upcoming. If it can manage away to win its next four games, it will certainly be a top contender for the number one seed at the end of the season.
