Contrastingly, it might be unlikely for Baylor Bears to be able to abruptly shift into a more scoring-intensive play style. Baylor may have the bigger momentum advantage in terms of the winning streak, but once Oklahoma finds its rhythm through a match, they close out games strong. The predicted score is 43 to 37 for the Sooners.
