Big 12 battle pits Cowboys against Bears

The third-ranked Oklahoma State Cowboys put their undefeated season on the line this weekend in Stillwater, as they play host to the Baylor Bears in Big 12 action from Boone Pickens Stadium.

Mike Gundy's Cowboys are one of just eight unbeatens left in the FBS ranks and moved to 7-0 overall and 4-0 in-conference with last weekend's 45-24 victory at Missouri.

Art Briles' Bears are a dangerous league foe, headlined by a Heisman candidate under center. Baylor won each of its first three games, but has dropped two of its last three affairs to fall to 4-2 overall and 1-2 in league play. The team enjoyed a bye last weekend after suffering a 55-28 setback to Texas A&M in College Station on October 15th.

This is the 30th meeting between these two programs. The Cowboys hold a 17-12 advantage all-time. Oklahoma State has won nine consecutive games against Baylor in Stillwater.
