Oklahoma Has Looked Impressive Vs Big 12

The Red River Rivalry isn’t exactly as meaningful as many had expected it might be before the season started. Instead, Oklahoma and Texas clash with the loser likely falling into obscurity. OU dominated the Big 12 last season by going 8-0 SU and 7-1 ATS in its last eight within the conference. 

Shark Bites
  • Oklahoma is 0-3 ATS in its last 3 games against Texas.
  • Texas is 11-4 SU in its last 15 games in Week 6.
  • Oklahoma is 8-1 SU in its last 9 games after losing the previous game in a matchup.

The Sooners running game has been critical to the team’s success, as Oklahoma has averaged 274 rushing yards in victories and just 123.5 in its losses. Getting the running game going is also important because it will minimize the amount of time Oklahoma’s porous secondary is on the field.

Texas came out hot but has since fizzled. The Longhorns have allowed 1062 yards and 99 points in their past two games, which led to defensive coordinator Vance Bedford being stripped of play-calling duties. Head coach Charlie Strong now holds the responsibility of calling defensive plays.
