Oklahoma State, Texas Look To Gain Ground In Crowded Big 12

There may not be a muddier conference right now than the Big 12. TCU is a perfect 3-0 in conference play while five other teams are at 2-1. Two of those five teams will meet this Saturday when the Texas Longhorns play host to the Oklahoma State Cowboys. Okie State has had Texas’ number recently, with the Cowboys going 5-2 SU and ATS in their past seven vs the Longhorns.

SHARK BITES
  • Oklahoma State WR Jalen McCleskey had 4 receptions for 109 yards and 1 TD vs Texas last season.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 11 of Texas’ last 13 games.
  • Oklahoma State is 12-2 SU in its last 14 games on the road.

These two programs put on an offensive clinic when they met last season, combining for 80 points and 1,123 offensive yards. As you would expect, Oklahoma State QB Mason Rudolph shone in that game, throwing for 392 yards and three touchdowns.

Oklahoma State is coming off the most prolific offensive performance in program history, as the squad accounted for a school-record 747 yards vs Baylor. Though the offense was impressive, it was the Cowboys defense that gave fans in Stillwater something to be excited about. Oklahoma State held Baylor to just 16 points after surrendering 78 points in their previous two.

Texas was so close to pulling off the come-from-behind upset victory in the Red River Rivalry last week but ultimately fell short 29-24. Freshman quarterback Sam Ehlinger cemented himself as the starter for the Longhorns, as he has accounted for 875 yards and four touchdowns in the past two games. Oklahoma State has a solid defense but has not faced a quarterback as multi-faceted as Ehlinger.
