Ahhhhh, the Red River Rivalry. I do love rivalry games. Even if you’re not a fan of certain teams of even certain conferences as a football fan you can appreciate tradition and rivalries.

This game hasn’t been decided by more than 10 points since 2006, albeit there was a 10 point win by Texas in 2008. On the surface you think Texas just isn’t the same Texas team and while that may be true you forget that they are 4-0 coming into this game. Your mind tends to think about how they struggled at home against BYU but you forget that they were still searching for a starting QB and the fact that BYU has played tough against Texas in the past. Your mind also automatically goes to the Oklahoma/FSU game earlier this season. That was an absolute brutally physical game throughout and it was a national game so it is burnt into our memories.
There is no doubt that Oklahoma is a top team in the country and if you know what you are watching when you watch the games you cannot deny that Landry Jones is destined for the NFL. The Sooners have physical players on defense and they are well coached.
Also true is the fact that this is not the same Texas team of a couple years ago but this is a much improved team to last year and last year we witnessed a 16-13 win by the Sooner’s.
I do think that Oklahoma wins this game and I will admit the potential for a blowout or comfortable win is possible but I’m not sold on it. In fact I am fairly confident that Texas will keep this game close or perhaps Oklahoma will via mistakes. In either case I think Texas keeps this game within a touchdown.
Play: Texas +10
