2021 Week 1 Big 12 Football Lines Announced

NCAA Football: Texas Christian at Baylor

You know the college football season is getting closer when we can start getting some spreads for games early in the season. And for the Big 12, which has a decent Week 1 slate, we are starting to get some lines for a handful of their games.

Here’s what we’ve got so far:


Stanford at Kansas State (-2)

Note: The game is at a neutral site…AT&T Stadium, Arlington, TX

Oklahoma (-21) at Tulane

West Virginia (-4½) at Maryland

Louisiana at Texas (-14½)   

Texas Tech (-7) at Houston

Note: The game is at a neutral site…NRG Stadium, Houston, TX

Baylor (-10) at Texas State

It’s a good start for the conference that it is favored in everyone of its Week 1 games. The games missing include lower-level competition, such as Iowa State vs. Northern Iowa, Kansas vs. South Dakota, TCU vs. Duquesne and Oklahoma State vs. Missouri State.

My initial thoughts on these spreads are: Baylor -10 feels like a good bet. Texas Tech and Texas feel like they’re too heavy of favorites considering some of their question marks and given the competition. WVU and Oklahoma I am on the fence on, while I would love for K-State to pick up that solid Power 5 win at Jerry World to start the season. Power 5 wins are always important for conferences and as I’ve been saying for years, every Big 12 fan should root for every other Big 12 team in non-conference games.
