The Texas Longhorns, owners of the only unblemished record (4-0) against Big 12 teams head north of the Red River this weekend for a matchup with a potentially dangerous Oklahoma State team. OSU isn’t having the kind of year to which it became accustomed during the Mason Rudolph-to-James Washington years, but it is a team that presents a legitimate challenge to Texas.
On paper, Texas should beat the Cowboys, who enter Saturday’s game with a 4-3 record overall record but just a 1-3 mark against Big 12 teams. OSU started the season with lopsided wins over Missouri State and South Alabama, but it wasn’t until the Cowboys took down Boise State in the season’s third week that people started to believe that this year’s Oklahoma State team might be a solid squad.
