#15 Texas and #13 Oklahoma continue their legendary rivalry this season. The two teams have not quite lived up to their expectations this season and this game used to be a preview for the Big 12 championship game. So there is a lot missing from the atmosphere in Dallas this weekend. But don’t think that this won’t be a good game.
Oklahoma off 41-20 romp of the Red Raiders in Lubbock, a game in which Landry Jones went 25 of 40 for 259 yds and 2 TDs. Though this is an awesome output from OU the only reason it is a key stat coming into this game is the Longhorn defensive has been horrendous. Lou Holtz found that the yds per attempt allowed by this years team is the second worst in Longhorn history. The thing I would concentrate on as a Sooner would be the running game to keep the ball away from the efficient David Ash. Though OU didn’t show this off against Texas Tech if Damien Williams can have a ‘break out’ game against the Longhorn defense then David Ash and the surprisingly good offense from Austin won’t have a chance to respond.
Longhorns need defense. Not turnovers, not big hard psychological hits, just defense. Three n outs, tackles for a loss, broken up passes, and solid tackling. If the Longhorn defense can get 3 or more OU possessions to be scoreless the game is close.
ENJOY THE STATE FAIR!
