    KU-easy win, FYI Trammel roosted Weis really good in the DOK yesterday.
    Baylor-win, a rebuilding year.
    Zona-win, Lunt's and the teams first road test
    OU- should be a win.
    KSU-I am most nervous about this game and it is a toss up.

    Based off of how both KSU and OU played last year, Klien tearing up teams and Jones falling apart, the only road game I chock up as a loss is at KSU. Synder is a good coach, has a good QB. I think we win at OU, I don't see Jones getting it done.

    Toss up between KSU & Stoopsie.

    I'll give some credit where credit is due with K State. But anything other than Norman can't be a serious answer.

    OU and KSU are the hardest. I haven't seen us play yet, so at the moment, it's really hard to tell whether we will win or not in the tougher games on the road.

    Last time we were in Manhatten we blew a 10 point lead with 5min to go in the game. Things have change since then and they gave us a helluva a game last year.
    But really we kicked their @$$ without Justin Blackmon.

    As for OU, it's tough to win in Norman and as I mentioned, I haven't seen this team play. I'm not comfortable in thinking we "should" win just yet.

    *Edit

    Pay no attention to what I said about the last game in Manhatten.

    I'm just not on board with the whole K-State love fest that some have. I know they played us tough last year and I know they won some big games but I just feel like they caught people by surprise more than being good last year. I don't want it to sound like they don't have talent, because they certainly do; but they are very one dimensional which doesn't tend to work over the long term anymore. Obviously none of us have seen our team play yet but on paper I think the only game you can really answer this question with right now is U of O. Norman is a tough place to win anytime and I'm just not prepared to say that Gundy finally has Stoops' number. Got a big monkey off the back last year but one win is just that, one win. I think we have the talent and coaching to win every game this year but a lot of things can happen to change that in an instant. Of course, that's why I love college football, have to line up and play every Saturday.

    Until OU proves something on the field, have to say KSU. I reserve the right to change my pick a few games in to the season. Right now I don't see the love fest for OU.

    I think KSU over-achieved last year and I expect their record to a little worse this season. A tough game for sure, but I think we win there.

    Still believe uo will be our toughest game (home or away) - but I expect to win that one also.

    Then again, looking at the matchups, I expect to win every game. Conversely, I don't think we'll go undefeated, because s#*t happens. Same thing I said last year, and I'd take a repeat of that.

    Edit: CF32, you type faster than I.

    KSU will be down from last year, but that is a tough place to play.

    I think norman will be the hardest road game, and potentially with the most on the line, as it may end up being for the Big 12 title.

    No problem. I did some digging and the last time we were there before 2010 was in '06 and we did blow a 10 point lead with like 4 minutes left.

    Co-sign. They won every game by the skin of their teeth last season (including Eastern Kentucky). Eight wins by 7 points or less. In fact, we were the only close game they had that they didn't pull out. That trend doesn't continue this year, although we'll have a tough time up there I'm sure. However, to answer the question...

    Coin flip between ou and KSU. I think we win both, but it won't be easy. Defensive line play is the unknown for me. If our D-line is improved, I like our chances alot.

    No doubt the two toughest teams we face on the road are KSU and OU.


    However, I think AZ will be the most anticipated and the one that has most people on the edge of their seat.....

    @ OU by a LONG shot

    @ KSU a distant 2nd

    @ Zona because it's early in the season, they will be fired up to at least beat us once in 3 tries

    @ Baylor - just because they will be a little better than KU

    @ KU - KU sucks

    I don't think KSU is an automatic loss. They are good at home and that is a place we always seem to struggle, but with an improved D this year I think we have enough firepower to win on the road.

    Obvious answer is OU. Another place that we never seem to play that well.

    The answer is OU and it's not even close.

    They have lost -- what 3 times in Norman over Stoops' entire tenure?

    What's been the average Bedlam score in Norman since 2001? Something like OU 45, OSU 3?

    The answer is OU in Norman.

    Some Paylor fans I know have chalked this up as a "W" for them.

    You know some stupid Paylor fans then. They couldn't do it with the beloved RGIII but they are going to do it without him now?
