Texas remains the only undefeated team in the Big 12. As long as that is the case they remain relevant but this is going to be a test, though there are still a couple of teams on the schedule that could beat them.
Oklahoma State looked good early when they took down Boise State but since that one neither team has looked all that great. They still have enough to push a Texas team that is far from perfect, especially at home.
This is not an elite Texas team but since getting over their terrible opener against Maryland they have been finding ways to win. From week to week we never know whether it will the defense or the offense that gets the job done.
It looks like they will be without starting quarterback Sam Ehlinger for this one. Backup Shane Buechele has had his chances to take the job and just never did much with it. Talent wise they should be able to win with either guy.
Texas recruiting might be a little down overall but they still have way too much talent to not be better defensively. Sure they gave up a bunch to Oklahoma, everyone does. This unit can be better and when it plays well they are physical and set the tone for the team.
Oklahoma State Cowboys
Oklahoma State is in a bit of trouble. Not only are they looking to break a two game losing streak but the rest of their schedule is really tough. Every team on it is likely to be bowl eligible before the season is done, putting their own eligibility in doubt.
The Cowboy offense can move the ball but some of their numbers are aided by early blowouts. QB Taylor Cornelius has good numbers overall but was off last week – his worst game of the season. He has thrown interceptions in four straight game. They are going to need to be balanced for this one though.
The OSU defrense has not kept up with the offense this season. When this unit is effective the team has really soared in the Mike Gundy era. Texas is not that dynamic on offense though so perhaps this is a good matchup.

It makes sense that Texas is the favourite in this spot, even on the road. Overall their resume is stronger even though this is far from a dominating Longhorns team.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Oklahoma State +3.5
The hook got my attention for this one. I like Texas to win but they are not going to roll through the Cowboys on their own home
Look for a close game that goes back and forth. I think Oklahoma State takes the lead early so I might looks at a first half play too. Texas makes just enough adjustments to get the win but the home team covers.
