Point Spread: +3½/-105 Texas
Saturday Big 12 Red River War

Texas +3 to 3.5
Going to take the better team here, and in my opinion that is Texas, even off a loss to West Virginia. Not many teams in the country can hold Geno Smith and the Mountaineer attack to under 35 points with the exception maybe of Alabama, and Texas lost that game by 3. On the other hand Texas's QB Ash playing great ball for them, and their 1-2 punch at RB and balance on offense is better than OU's. Oklahoma had a nice win at Texas Tech last week, but Tech not near the team Texas is, and the Texas defense, and the ability to rush the passer is a big key in this game.
Last time OU played someone close to Texas in talent, who could run the ball and rush the passer in press coverage was K State, and K State beat them up in Norman. Texas playing with 3 time revenge in this heated rivalry game and have not forgotten the butt whipping OU gave them last year. OU's offense has WIlliams running the ball better but QB Jones is having a less than stellar year and only has 1 big play weapon in WR Stills. I like the Longhorns here in Dallas at the Cotton Bowl to make a statement against an over rated OU team who has not been in total sync all season.
Texas 28 OU 24 - Grab the points with the Longhorns
