Week 9 games

Texas at Kansas

Texas Tech at Kansas State

Notre Dame at Oklahoma

Baylor at Iowa State

TCU at Oklahoma State

Michigan at Nebraska

Off-the-wall question: Who would you say is the most annoying person on television?

Associate sports editor Drew Hartsock (30-12 overall, 5-1 in Week 8)

Texas 41, Kansas 14

Kansas State 56, Texas Tech 55

Oklahoma 55, Notre Dame 42

Baylor 77, Iowa State 70, 4OT

Oklahoma State 35, TCU 28

Nebraska 21, Michigan 17

Question: Anybody on any of the so-called reality shows (except those on The Food Network, 'cause the Food Network rocks).

Sports copy editor Chris Cottrell (30-12 overall, 6-0 in Week 8)

Texas 42, Kansas 14

Kansas State 31, Texas Tech 21

Oklahoma 35, Notre Dame 31

Iowa State 24, Baylor 23

Oklahoma State 27, TCU 24

Nebraska 24, Michigan 21

Question: Ann Coulter.

KU football beat writer Matt Tait (29-13 overall, 5-1 in Week 8)

Kansas 21, Texas 20

Kansas State 35, Texas Tech 27

Oklahoma 37, Notre Dame 21

Iowa State 23, Baylor 20

TCU 30, Oklahoma State 28

Nebraska 31, Michigan 23

Question: For me, it's a tie between NFL quarterbacks Jay Cutler and Philip Rivers. Watching both guys "play" gets me unreasonably riled up. Ryan Seacrest is right up there, though.

High school beat reporter Benton Smith (28-14 overall, 4-2 in Week 8)

Texas 48, Kansas 27

Kansas State 27, Texas Tech 20

Oklahoma 27, Notre Dame 17

Iowa State 37, Baylor 31

Oklahoma State 34, TCU 30

Michigan 30, Nebraska 28

Question: Jay Leno.

KU men's basketball beat writer Gary Bedore (27-15 overall, 4-2 in Week 8)

Texas 48, Kansas 10

Kansas State 35, Texas Tech 24

Oklahoma 40, Notre Dame 17

Iowa State 41, Baylor 30

Oklahoma State 35, TCU 17

Nebraska 37, Michigan 14

Question: Lindsay Lohan and her entire family. I think the dad was on Celebrity Rehab; Lohan herself is a train wreck and the mom acted either drunk or like a wacko on Dr. Phil. This is celebrity in America gone berserk. All three of them need serious help and should be off TV forever.

KUsports.com online editor Jesse Newell (27-15 overall, 5-1 in Week 8)

Texas 42, Kansas 17

Kansas State 38, Texas Tech 35

Oklahoma 28, Notre Dame 14

Iowa State 31, Baylor 21

Oklahoma State 42, TCU 24

Michigan 27, Nebraska 21

Question: Rex Hudler. I hear he's a good guy and that he works hard, but he's just the exact opposite of what I think a baseball analyst should be. If I can't get the radio synced up to Denny Matthews, I watch Royals games on TV with the mute button on.

Sports copy editor Nick Gerik (26-16 overall, 4-2 in Week 8)

Texas 34, Kansas 17

Kansas State 40, Texas Tech 21

Oklahoma 24, Notre Dame 14

Iowa State 28, Baylor 27

TCU 33, Oklahoma State 27

Michigan 24, Nebraska 23

Question: That actor/actress on that one show with the laugh track.

Sports editor Tom Keegan (24-18 overall, 3-3 in Week 8)

Texas 35, Kansas 14

Kansas State 41, Texas Tech 31

Oklahoma 35, Notre Dame 28

Iowa State 42, Baylor 35

Oklahoma State 42, TCU 20

Michigan 31, Nebraska 28

Question: MSNBC's Rachel Maddow
