Jake

11-2

Christopher

10-3

Robert

11-1...if you have any trouble understanding that prediction, refer to my current Twitter handle.

Phillip

With bowl game? 10-3

Josh Poteet

11-1

Austin

11-2

Cade

I’ll go with 10-3. I think we lose two games to any combination of OSU’s road gauntlet of Baylor, TCU and OU. If that’s the case, odds are that OSU returns to the Sugar Bowl, and well... Yeah.

Kyle

I’m going to go with 10-3.

Josh Elias

11-2 including the bowl game. Beat OU.

Who do the Pokes lose to and why?

Jake

I think the Pokes start 10-0 just like last year. Also just like last year, I think they lose the last two regular season games. TCU and OU on the road is a brutal way to end your season.

Christopher

Baylor, TCU, OU. I still think Baylor will be formidable this season, especially in Waco. Reports are KD Cannon will be ready for the season after surgery, and I think we continue to struggle to cover him. TCU's defense should be stout and, again, the game is on the road. I think the Frogs win a close one. Oklahoma will be a nightmare to defend. Even coming off a bye week does little to give me confidence going into Norman this year.

Robert

Texas in Stillwater...the last time the home team won was 2008.

Phillip

Baylor - I realize the team is going through a lot of internal strife right now. But after three gimme games to get their "heads in the game" I think they'll be ready to face OSU in the conference opener for both teams.

Texas Tech - We give them a lot of grief, but after 7 straight wins by OSU this just feels like the year Tech figures out how to outscore OSU (because there's no way their defense will win the game for them)

OU - I can never predict a win over OU. Especially in Norman, especially when OU has an extra week to prepare. I realize OSU has a bye week before the game too, but... I just can't.

Josh Poteet

Lose to OU because they're better.

Austin

I think Baylor knocks the wind out of our sails early. Baylor has a chip on their shoulder, and they are going to take their frustrations out on the first conference opponent they face. We will then cruise through conference play, and lose to big brother in the end.

Cade

I’m worried about the Baylor game. They still have plenty of talent returning on the offensive side of the ball, and their coaches sans Briles are back. That said, this is the beginning of the end for Baylor, but the end won’t be before this season.

Kyle

TCU, Texas and OU. I need some more Kool-Aid, Robert.

Josh Elias

They lose their first one in a fluke game to Kansas State on the road. The long season catches up to the Pokes and they lose to TCU by less than a touchdown. Beat OU.

What will the biggest win be?

Jake

Baylor in Waco. This team has got to be out for blood after the Bears ruined the Cowboys perfect season in Stillwater.

Christopher

The bowl game. Because otherwise it's West Virginia?

Robert

Bedlam in Norman. Will go down as the greatest Bedlam game ever.

Phillip

Texas. We finally beat the Longhorns AT HOME after 4 straight victories in Austin.

Josh Poteet

Beat TCU in FTW.

Austin

TCU. I remember going to Ft. Worth in 2014 to see the Cowboys get absolutely smoked. I predict that we go there with a little more pride than last go-around, and whoop TCU in front of their home fans.

Cade

TCU. I think they’re probably a tad overrated as it is. Trevone Boykin and Josh Doctson are huge losses, but their defense will be salty. I expect OSU to have more offensive firepower in the end, and that will ultimately be the difference.

Kyle

Three? Yeah, that leaves a bowl win and the biggest.

Josh Elias

Just like 2014. Beat OU.

Which Bowl game and outcome/score if you choose.

Jake

I think we have a shot at playing in the Sugar Bowl again. (Hopefully with a better outcome).

Christopher

Russell Athletic Bowl. Gundy vs. Fedora would be fun, yes? UNC suffers a second straight loss to the Big 12. 42-35 Pokes.

Robert

I'm staying away from this one. I still get a participation trophy, right?

Phillip

Alamo Bowl vs UCLA. 38-34 OSU victory. OSU trails 10-0 early and 17-14 at halftime to pull off the come-from-behind win.

Josh Poteet

Back to the Sugar Bowl. OU in the playoff and we take the next highest bowl. Get slaughtered by some SEC school (Alabama).

Austin

I'd love to go back to the Sugar Bowl and erase any memories of what happened last year.

Cade

I think OSU ends up in the Sugar Bowl again, and unfortunately, they’ll run into the likes of Alabama, LSU or Tennessee. I don’t like our chances against Bama or LSU, but Tennessee is an SEC dark horse. That said, I would love playing any of these teams. It’s great for ‘crootin.

Kyle

I will guess a 42-28 win over USC in some New Year’s Six Bowl. OSU ends second in the league due to Baylor’s drama and TCU trying to figure out who starts at QB.

Josh Elias

They play LSU in the Sugar Bowl. Win 30-17. Still beat OU.
