2013 Big 12
Team by Team
College Football Previews
Texas Tech 2013 College Football Betting Preview – Kliff Kingsbury is back and this time as the head coach. Texas Tech returns seven starters on each side of the ball which should help mightily in Kingsbury’s first season at the helm. Not to mention the Red Raiders were ranked as high as No. 14 in the AP poll last year.
2013 West Virginia Football Schedule with Preview and Odds – West Virginia has a lot of offense to replace as Geno Smith and his top two wide receivers are gone. Stedman Bailey and Tavon Austin caught 37 of Smith’s 42 TD passes last year on one of the best offenses in the country. Even with that fire power, the Mountaineers only managed a 7-6 record, mainly because of a poor defense.
2013 Texas Longhorns Football Betting Preview – The Longhorns are once again becoming relevant in the college football world. The last time they were respected this much came in 2009 when they finished the regular season undefeated and ended up losing in the National Championship Game to Alabama.
2013 TCU College Football Preview with Schedule and Odds – The Horned Frogs only finished 7-6 last year in their first season in the Big 12, but it was actually a really respectable campaign considering everything they had to go through. The good news is that they will likely be better in 2013 which is why many have TCU ranked inside the Top 20 at the moment
2013 Oklahoma State College Football Preview – Even after an inconsistent 8-5 season, Oklahoma State is in the conversation to compete for the Big 12 title in 2013. With 15 returning starters and a friendly Schedule, there’s no reason to bet against the Cowboys.
2013 Oklahoma Sooners Football Betting Preview and Schedule – Oklahoma has started in the preseason AP Top 11 in each of the past 12 years. This year, the Sooners will likely find themselves ranked a little lower as they’ll have to deal with a good amount of departures, including starting quarterbacking LAndry Jones. Not only that, but Bob Stoops brought in a few new faces to the coaching staff as finishing 10-3 was a bit of a disappointment for him.
2013 Kansas State Football Betting Preview – Kansas State has had quite the run over the last couple of seasons, but that senior class is out which creates plenty of holes. The good thing is that Bill Snyder is still the head coach and it doesn’t really matter what players he has, his teams always surprise.
2013 Kansas Jayhawks College Football Betting Preview – Everyone knows Kansas is a basketball school and hasn’t given much thought to the football team for a while. Charlie Weis came in with the idea of changing the mindset, but a 1-11 record in his first season wasn’t exactly a good sign.
2013 Iowa State Football Preview with Schedule and Odds – Even without an overly exciting squad, Paul Rhoads continues to churn out six-win seasons for the Cyclones. While 2012 wasn’t great by any means, Iowa State managed big wins at TCU and against Baylor which were key in getting them a bowl Game.
2013 Baylor Football Preview with Odds and Schedule – The talk on Baylor is that they ended the 2012 year really hot, winning Four of their last five Games including wins over Kansas State, Oklahoma State and UCLA. Their only loss during that period came at Oklahoma by eight points.
