Trib sports guys Brice Cherry, John Werner and Tony Adame return as the undefeated Bears get ready to go on the road in the Big 12:

• With Iowa State this week and Kansas for homecoming, the Bears will almost certainly be 6-0 ... but then it's tough sledding in a heavily backloaded Big 12 slate.

• How will the weather and the crowd factor in BU's trip to Ames? Will this week's road trip resemble the 2012 version, a surprise 35-21 loss, or the 2014 version, a dominant 49-28 victory?

• Nothing but Big 12 games on the schedule this week, and it's mostly toss-ups: Texas-Oklahoma State, Kansas State-West Virginia, Oklahoma-TCU. How do you see these coming out?

• Today is National Drink Beer Day. If you could have a beer with one Big 12 coach, who would you pick? And who wouldn't you want to hang out with?
