Week 9 has some intriguing games awaiting us and should be yet another fantastic weekend of Big 12 football.

*All times listed are in CST

The Oklahoma Sooners and Iowa State Cyclones will face off in Ames after each team gets a much-needed bye in Week 8. Oklahoma is coming off a 52-42 win over No. 19 Kansas, while Iowa State suffered a heart-breaking 24-21 loss at the hands of Texas in Week 7. The game is set to kick at 11:00 a.m. CT on FS1 and will feature two of the bottom teams in the conference with Oklahoma at 1-3 in conference play, and Iowa State at 0-4.

Baylor will head to Lubbock to take on Texas Tech in the Joey McGuire Bowl, with McGuire facing his former team for the first time. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. and is set to air on ESPN2. As things currently stand, both Baylor and Texas Tech have identical 3-3 (1-2 Big 12) records, and are favored in games this week against Kansas and West Virginia respectively.

There are two more games on the slate for Week 9, with Oklahoma State heading to Manhattan to face Kansas State, and TCU hitting the road to take on West Virginia. Both games are yet to have set networks or kick times, as the Big 12’s television partners will exercise their rights to a six-day selection. What that means is, the television partners are permitted to give a six-day notice for kick times and network assignments, which they can do four times a year.

They are simply waiting to see how this week’s action plays out before choosing networks and kick times for Week 9.
