It’s conference championship week and, predictably, the Texas Longhorns aren’t in it.

That’s to be expected after a five-game losing skid that brought Texas’ record under first-year head coach Steve Sarkisian to a lowly 5-7 at regular season’s end. It hurt. It hurt a lot.

College football can be a fickle ... well, you know what I’m getting at.

There is, however, still plenty of great college football to watch, both tonight and Saturday. I’ll break down the schedule below, and you can dig into DraftKings Sportsbook odds here, including Oklahoma State as a 5.5-point favorite over Baylor.*
