College football ’13 TV lineup for L.A. in Week 11: Baylor-Oklahoma may be OK, but it’s no Oregon-Stanford, OK?

Baylor football’s Twitter account this week said the school issued more than 450 media credentials for Thursday night meeting’s between the No. 6 Bears and visiting No. 10 Oklahoma. That includes 12 NFL team scouts and five bowl game reps coming by just to hang out.
Well, well, well.
Pregame.com’s RJ Bellreports that Oklahoma, a 14-point underdog, hasn’t been this far on the other side of a spread since it was 14 1/2 wrong to Texas in 2005 — and lost by 33 to the eventual national champions.
6338217226_c329c58013_zNot sure if all that much attention will be heaped upon the “other” matchup between two Top 10 BCS teams on Thursday — No. 3 Oregon at No. 5 Stanford. The Ducks are a 7 1/2-point favorite. The teams have split the past four meetings. The road teams won the last two. And a year ago, Stanford held Oregon to 14.
Saturday also features No. 1 Alabama as a 11-point favorite against No. 11 LSU — the 51st straight game the Tide has been favored, reports Bell. In each instance, Alabama has averaged a more-than three TD advantage. Alabama hasn’t been favored this much over LSU since 1999.
