Texas Longhorns at Oklahoma Sooners (-3.5)

Saturday October 2, 2010 3:30 PM EST

The Red River Rivalry is how Oklahoma will debut in its season opener for the Big 12. Both teams lost QBs into the draft last year. The Longhorns lost Colt Mccoy while the Sooners lost Sam Bradford. The Sooners come into the game with a 4-0 record while the Longhorns come in with a 3-1 record.

Texas has lived and died by their defense. This is supposed to be the year the defense holds the team together while Sophomore Garret Gilbert finds his stride. Texas is ranked #21, but struggled mightily last week at home vs UCLA. The defense has done their share, holding opponents to an average of only 18 points per game. The offense is only putting up 26 points a game and that may not be enough to beat the Sooners. Oklahoma comes into this game sporting the #8 ranking in the nation. They have had far better QB play via Sophomore QB Landry Jones. Jones has 1,221 yards with 9 TDs and 3 Ints. Jones did get valuable playing time last year when Bradford went down with a shoulder injury. The dark horse in this game will be RB DeMarco Murray. The Senior RB has 436 rushing yards with 7 TDs. He also has added 111 receiving yards with another TD.

The play of Landry Jones and explosiveness of DeMarco Murray make this an easy football pick. These games in this rivalry always seem close, but after the way Texas looked last week, I need them to show me something. Oklahoma will prove to be too much and will cover the line.
