The College Football Playoff committee might not be showing the Big 12 any love, but that doesn’t mean we can’t all enjoy what this conference has in store for us down the stretch, which is showdown after showdown.

This weekend, the Oklahoma Sooners and Baylor Bears will take the field, and the winner will move one step closer to the playoff … even if the committee seems to be throwing some snub juice at the Big 12 right now.

Here are five bold predictions for the biggest showdown of Week 11.

Not only do I think Oklahoma is going to force itself into the playoff picture (foreshadowing at its finest right there), but I think Baker Mayfield is going to force himself into the Heisman race.

Five TDs in this battle would certainly do the trick.

Samaje Perine hasn’t really had an encore for his tremendous freshman season, but he has still managed to find the end zone 10 times this year — well, on the ground, that is.

Add two more to his resume, because the underrated running back is going to get some touches early and often.

No matter how many interceptions Jarrett Stidham throws, this game will still be a shootout. This is the Big 12 we are talking about, and Oklahoma and Baylor’s offenses are as lethal as they come.

Unfortunately, Stidham will throw one too many interceptions.

Shock Linwood has 1,046 rushing yards and nine rushing touchdowns, yet his name has been nowhere near the spotlight in 2015. In the spirit of touchdowns raining down in this contest, Linwood will have three of his own.

First team to 50 (maybe 60?) could win this game. However, I am going with the Sooners for two reasons: (1) Stidham is not Seth Russell. (2) Bob Stoops has coached in a big game a time or two over the years.
