CFB: (4) Baylor at (10) OK St.

Don't complain about the BCS just yet, Baylor Bears fans. Your team still has work to do, starting this Saturday in Stillwater, Okla. There, the Oklahoma State Cowboys -- they of just one loss all season -- can scupper Baylor's ambitions while helping their own Big 12 title chances. Baylor has blasted almost everyone it has faced this season. But with its recent injury outbreak, this one could be tough doing.

CFB: (18) Okla. St. at (15) Texas Tech

Texas Tech nearly made a real statement last Saturday, playing Oklahoma close in Norman. But the Red Raiders fell short, placing themselves among the one-loss teams aiming at Baylor (and Texas) in the Big 12 title race. Also on that list: Oklahoma State, which hasn't gotten good play from the quarterback position, but can stay alive in the conference with a win in Lubbock, Texas, on Saturday.

Marqise Lee returned to USC practice Wednesday, prompting a sigh of relief from the injury-riddled Trojans. Lee is college football's near-consensus top receiver. Can anyone challenge the likely top 10 pick in 2013 for that title? How do the rest of the best stack up?
