This Big 12 rivalry game otherwise known as the Red River Rivalry will feature the Oklahoma Sooners and the Texas Longhorns.
In their last meeting, Texas won the game 77-66.
The Sooners have struggled in conference play so far, posting a 2-3 record through five games.
While Oklahoma may only average 73.6 points per game, their rebounding is exceptional. They are 9th in the country in this category and average 41.8 boards per game. Winning the rebounding battle will be a major key to a Sooners win. The other key will be for leading scorer, Christian James, to have a monster game. James averages 17 points per game, but recently his shooting percentage has been down.
The Sooners have allowed a solid 67.1 points per game this season. In Big 12 play, this number has slightly increased to 69.6. They also only allow their opponents to shoot 38.3% from the field. If the Sooners can keep the Longhorns under 70 points and below 40% from the field, they will win this game.
Texas started conference play 2-0 and were looking like the surprise team of the Big 12. Now they have lost three in a row and desperately need a win to get back into the top half of the conference standings.
The Longhorns offense has overall been poor this season as they only average 71.5 points per game. They also do not shoot the ball very well, hitting just 43% from the field and 33% from three point range. Their leading scorer this season is Kerwin Roach III. However, he is only averaging 13.5 points per game. If the Longhorns want to win this game and snap their losing streak, they will need Roach III to step up and have a breakout game.
The Longhorns have had a solid defense this season. They allow 64.8 points per game. This ranks 36th in the country. If they can hold Oklahoma to under 40% shooting and limit their rebounding, they will pick up an important road win.
