What to Know
A Big 12 battle is on tap between the Texas Longhorns and the Oklahoma Sooners at noon ET Saturday at Cotton Bowl. Coming off of a loss in a game they were expected to win, Texas now face the more daunting task of proving themselves against unfavorable odds.
The Longhorns were close but no cigar last week as they fell 33-31 to the TCU Horned Frogs. What made the loss an especially bitter pill for Texas to swallow was that they had been favored by 10.5 points coming into the matchup. Texas’ defeat came about despite a quality game from QB Sam Ehlinger, who passed for four TDs and 236 yards on 36 attempts in addition to picking up 49 yards on the ground.
Meanwhile, Oklahoma came up short against the Iowa State Cyclones last week, falling 37-30. QB Spencer Rattler put forth a good effort for the losing side as he passed for two TDs and 300 yards on 36 attempts in addition to punching in one rushing touchdown.
Special teams collected 12 points for Oklahoma. K Gabe Brkic delivered a perfect 3-for-3 game.
Two offensive stats to keep an eye on: Texas comes into the game boasting the most passing touchdowns in the nation at 16. The Sooners have displayed some offensive firepower of their own as they enter the contest with 390.3 passing yards per game on average, good for second best in the nation.
