NCAA Online Betting Odds:
The Longhorns charge into this weekend’s action sporting a 4-1 record that ranks them 1st in the Big 12. So far this season, Texas has faced 2 Big 12 opponents and has escaped unharmed. Technically their 2-0 conference record ties them with West Virginia and Oklahoma for the lead in the conference. But considering this weekend’s lineup, we’ll get our tie breaker very soon. The odds are pegging Texas as the underdog, which was to be expected. Right now Texas ranks as the 19th best program in the nation while Oklahoma is sitting at No. 7. Clearly the Longhorns have their work cut out for them this weekend. And since Texas is 4-6 in their last 10 matchups against Oklahoma, it looks like history is not in their favor. Barring some miraculous outing this Saturday, Texas will likely be playing catch up all day long.
Players to Watch: Sam Ehlinger (1,185 passing yards, 9 TD, 2 INT), Tre Watson (280 rushing yards, 1 TD, 4.0 AVG), and Lil’Jordan Humphrey (404 receiving yards, 3 TD, 26 REC).
The Sooners enter this weekend’s Big 12 matchup flashing a flawless 5-0 record. However, it’s no understatement to say that Oklahoma hasn’t been facing tough competition. In fact, this weekend’s matchup marks the first time this season that they’ve faced nationally ranked opposition. Sure, Oklahoma comes in with some great statistics. Right now they’re putting up a whopping 48.6 per game while only giving up 23.2. For comparison, Texas is scoring 28.8 themselves and giving 19.8 to their opponents. However, Texas has faced 2 nationally ranked opponents this season. Since Oklahoma hasn’t, we can’t be certain as to what we can expect out of them. After all, even the NCAA online betting odds are predicting a tight contest between these two. Ultimately this will likely come down to whoever wins the time of possession battle.
Players to Watch: Kyler Murray (1,460 passing yards, 17 TD, 2 INT), Trey Sermon (294 rushing yards, 2 TD, 5.3 AVG), and Marquise Brown (544 receiving yards, 5 TD, 24 REC).
