No. 14 Oklahoma State will look to continue its winning ways without its top players on Saturday when the Cowboys travel to Baylor for a 12:30PM ET kickoff from Floyd Casey Stadium.

Bet Oklahoma State at Baylor
The Cowboys are still without star receiver Dez Bryant while starting running back Kendall Hunter has missed four-straight with a sprained ankle.

Baylor is 3-3 on the year and 3-3 against the spread. The Bears started 3-1 but have lost their last two games. Baylor took a big hit when starting quarterback Robert Griffin was sidelines for the season with a knee injury. Griffin threw for 481 yards and four touchdowns prior to the injury. Nick Florence has replaced Griffin and thrown for 485 yards and one touchdown in four games. Kendall Wright has caught 33 passes for 371 yards and two touchdowns. The Bears are led on the ground by Jarred Salubi, who has 246 yards and two touchdowns.
