We have reached week seven of the college football season and most teams will be playing big conference games this weekend.
One of those is a huge Big 12 showdown between two teams who don’t really like each other.
It’s the Red River Showdown on Saturday afternoon at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas. The Oklahoma Sooners and the Texas Longhorns will face off in this one.
The Oklahoma Sooners have had a really nice season so far for the most part. They were cruising along and climbing the rankings until last weekend and the Iowa State Cyclones rolled into town.
They were leading most of the afternoon against the Cyclones, but the Cyclones made a comeback in the second half to win the game 38-31.
Now the Sooners aren’t eliminated from playoff contention yet, but they don’t have much wiggle room anymore. They probably need to win out if they want any chance at one of those four spots.
For the Sooners it’s all about the offense. They come into this game averaging 587 and 44.6 points per game which are both in the top six of the country.
On offense the Sooners are led by Senior Baker Mayfield who has been playing really well so far. He has thrown for 1635 yards and 15 touchdowns.
Now those stats are impressive, but the most impressive one might be interceptions. He comes into this game having thrown zero interceptions.
To win this game the offense needs to continue their offensive output. They need to try to run up this score as high as possible, and hope the defense can make enough stops.
On the other side of this match up is the Texas Longhorns who have played well for most of the season so far this year.
They come into this game with a 3-2 record, but have been getting better and playing really well in the last couple of games.
In their last game they played the Kansas State Wildcats, a team that was supposed to be comparable to them, but they blew them out of the water on the offensive end.
Although they only won 40-34 the fact they put up 40 points against a very good Wildcats defense is very impressive.
To win this game the Longhorns defense need to find a way to slow down the Sooners. They need to try and not let this game get into a shootout.
