  • The Oklahoma State Cowboys’ perfect 3-0 record will be put to the test Saturday in Austin when they open Big 12 play with a visit to Sam Ehlinger and the Texas Longhorns. Texas has put up more than 500 yards of offense in two of its first three games, including last week’s 48-13 victory over Rice.

    Sportsbook Odds Analysis

    Oklahoma State has been an underdog of a touchdown or more in six of its last nine conference road games. The Cowboys are catching a full seven in this one as well — just the fourth time Texas has laid this many points in its last 12 home games against Big 12 opposition.

    Oklahoma State News & Notes

    Cowboys coach Mike Gundy is best known for his offense, but it was the Oklahoma State defense that came up big last week in a come-from-behind win at Tulsa. After getting gashed for 21 points in the Sportsbook half, the Cowboys stop unit held the Golden Hurricane scoreless in the final 30 minutes, allowing just 32 rushing yards in the process.

    That dominant performance masked a poor outing for freshman quarterback Spencer Sanders, who managed just 43 passing yards and a pick in the Sportsbook half. On the day, Oklahoma State finished with 169 yards, with 90 of them coming on a touchdown reception by Tylan Wallace. Fortunately, Chuba Hubbard continued to carry the mail for Okie State on the ground, rushing for 256 yards and three touchdowns. In his last seven games, Hubbard has racked up nearly 1,000 yards and a dozen scores.

    Texas News & Notes

    Coming off a tough loss to LSU the previous week and with this game against Oklahoma State on deck, the Longhorns could have been forgiven for looking past Rice. They didn’t, however, blitzing the Owls to the tune of a 38-0 score before pulling most of their starters late in the third quarter.

    Quarterback Sam Ehlinger continued to light up the skies, completing 23 of 27 passes for 279 yards and three touchdowns before hitting the bench. His 1,077 total yards is a Texas record for the first three games of a season, and he’s one of only three quarterbacks in the nation with 10-plus touchdowns and zero interceptions. The Texas offense also has a secret weapon in sophomore kicker Cameron Dicker, who drilled a 57-yarder against Rice and now has two field goals longer than 50 yards.

    Betting Pick: Texas -7

    You need an elite passing game this year to keep up with this Longhorns offense, and I don’t see Sanders being up to the challenge.

    Shark Bites
    • The total has gone UNDER in 7 of Oklahoma State’s last 9 games on the road in September.
    • The total has gone UNDER in 20 of Texas’ last 26 games against Big 12 opponents.
    • The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Oklahoma State’s last 7 games at Texas.
