Texas Vs Oklahoma State Preview

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Twenty-fifth ranked Texas is hosting a Big 12 matchup against twelfth ranked Oklahoma State this Saturday at 11:00 AM central.

Texas is looking to become three and one in the Conference, while Oklahoma State is trying to stay undefeated. Oklahoma State is coming off a tremendous win against 21st ranked Baylor. Texas, on the other hand, is coming off a heartbreaking loss to Oklahoma. Must-win game for both teams and will define the rest of the season for them.

Texas Longhorns

Texas has had a slow start at the beginning of the season but has gotten a lot better since week one. Defensive wise they have not been able to stop teams from gaining yards, and last week showed that. They allow an average of 29.2 points a game and average 439 total yards. This week they will need to iron out the kinks if they want to beat the high-scoring teams. The defense needs to change this week because this Oklahoma State team is good scorers.

Their offense is playing amazing football so far this year. They are ranked in the top 20 for offense and average almost 45 points a game and 480 total yards. Their offense is packed with star-studded players such as Bijan Robinson, Casey Thompson, and Xavier Worthy. Robinson is one of the best running backs in the nation and has 125 carries for 789 yards and eight touchdowns. Thompson is playing great football and has 1095 passing yards and 14 touchdowns. Worthy had his best game last week with nine catches for 261 yards and two touchdowns.

The offense will continue what they have been doing all year, but their defense needs to step up. Texas needs to have a great defensive day otherwise it will be a shot out once again.

Oklahoma State Cowboys

Oklahoma State started the season off shaky like Texas but bounced back hugely. Their offense has been playing as a Big 12 school should. They are an offensive heavy team but only average about 25 points a game and only about 378 total yards. Their offense does not have the star power that Texas does, but they don’t need it. Oklahoma’s leading passing, Spencer Sanders, only has 781 passing yards and five touchdowns but has found the way to win. Their offense will need to score often to keep this game close.

Their defense is a different story because they only allow an average of 91 rushing yards a game. It is huge because Texas relies on rushing to open the game up. They will need to continue to stop the rushing game. The passing game on defense is a lot different because they let up an average of about 214 passing yards a game. Their defense will need to step up big time because Texas can do both.

Final Thoughts

The game may be another shootout for Texas unless they find a way to stop Oklahoma State on offense. Everything could be on the line for both of these teams. Winning this game may be their ticket to the conference championship game and for Oklahoma State, a chance at the playoffs.

Predictions: Texas wins 42 to 35.
