The epitome of the Big 12's sometimes-earned stereotype of being an offense first, defense-free league will meet in Waco on Saturday, when Robert Griffin III trades blows with Gary Pinkel's spread offense. SB Nation's Bill C. reports that if you're not a fan of either school and free of any investments (not that any of us wager money on the outcomes of sporting events), this game's back-and-forth will make for great viewing:
What could be most interesting about this game is the simple fact that no lead of any kind will be safe. Baylor played horribly with the lead against teams like TCU and Kansas State, but they are relentless and will keep charging on offense. Meanwhile, Mizzou has been both susceptible to second-quarter droughts and prone to incredible fourth-quarter surges. No matter the score, keep watching. These two teams play with high pace and resiliency, and they will put on a fun show, even if "fun" in this case means "stressful" for the fanbases involved.
Game date, time: Saturday, November 5, 6pm ET
Location: Floyd Casey Stadium, Waco, Texas
Radio: Mizzou Tiger Radio Network
