It looked like things were finally turning around for Texas this season but then they had no clue how to stop Cal on the road a couple of weeks ago, taking their first loss.
This is their first conference game of the season so there is a bit of a reset. Beginning with Oklahoma State and Oklahoma is certainly no picnic.
Ok State is looking to bounce back as well. They lost to Baylor last week in their B12 opener.
They have already played a lot of competitive games and have to be happy to have this one at home to get things right for the easy part of their schedule.
A sleeper preseason I wouldn’t write them off just yet.
That close win over Notre Dame that was supposed to set the program back on course seems like a lifetime ago.
In that game and the loss to Cal they have given up more than 40 points, something that is not supposed to happen very often at a place like Texas. The defense was supposed to be the constant on this team this season.
Instead it might be the offense that leads them back to respectability. If they can prove that is what they are.
Freshman QB Shane Beuchele has been very good and in RBs D’Onta Foreman and Chris Warren III they have two backs who can pound the rock.
That group just couldn’t put up enough points against the Bears to get them the victory.
Oklahoma State might be stronger against the run but I still expect the Longhorns to look to establish themselves rather than putting the game in the hand of Beuchele.
Oklahoma State Cowboys
I had high hopes for the Cowboys this season. I thought there offense could be Top 20 and that their defense would be opportunistic enough to win some big ball games.
That game against CMU was a wild one and they can say what they want but if you let the game come down to just a play or two you are playing with fire…and the Chippewas are pretty darn good.
This is a game they have to have to get their season back on track.
Oklahoma State has good players but they can’t make mistakes.
Mason Rudolph was a boss against Pitt throwing for more than 500 yards but it is no coincidence that the two games in which he had an interception are the two games that they lost.
They are better than Texas, but they have to play like it if they are going to get the win. That number might be overly influenced by recent events.

Last week’s losses might have set up a nice buying opportunity on the home team. Preseason I think this one might gave been more like Ok State -7.
Now you get them at -2.5.
I see more than home field the difference in this one.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Oklahoma State -2.5
There is no question to me that OSU has the better offense, with an NFL ready quarterback. Before the season started I would have said that Texas was the better defensive team but those guys have taken a beating this season.
I think the potent, diverse offense will lead the way to an easy Cowboys victory.
