Bob Stoops will get another chance to throw some jabs at the SEC early in the schedule. After Stoops called out the SEC and defeated Alabama, the SEC is seeking revenge. Look for linebacker Eric Striker to cause problems for Tennessee’s miserable offense. The Vols’ offense came in at 96th in scoring in the nation last season.

The 2014 Bedlam football game will be played on championship week. The Sooners ruined the Cowboys BCS bowl hopes last year in their 33-24 last second win on the road. With Trevor Knight injured, Blake Bell came off the bench and threw the game winning touchdown to Jalen Saunders with 19 seconds left. A fumble return for a TD on the last play made the score look different than how the game was played.

Bill Snyder is one of the greatest coaches of all time in college football and his Kansas State Wildcats are ranked No. 20 entering the 2014 season. 2013 was a Colin Klein hangover year for the Wildcats as they went 8-5 including a 31-14 clobbering of Michigan in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl. Klein was missed last year and the Wildcats finished 54th in the nation in rushing yards.

Baylor’s record breaking offense returns seven starters from a unit that averaged 52.4 points a game. Bryce Petty is the best passing QB in college football, as he threw for 4,200 yards and 32 touchdowns while adding 14 scores on the ground. Baylor also returns five WRs with big game experience. Middle LB Bryce Hager is one of the few standouts on a poor Baylor defense. Oklahoma lost last year’s matchup 41-12 and were out-gained 459 to 237.
