#17 Oklahoma State Cowboys at Texas Longhorns

Saturday November 13, 2010 8:00 PM EST

Line: Oklahoma State -6

Texas must be shaking in their cowboy boots coming into this one. The Longhorns have lost three straight and have failed to score more than 22 points the last three weeks. Oklahoma State has won 2 straight and thumped Baylor last week 55-28.

Stats to consider:

Oklahoma State Cowboys:

  • The Cowboys are 8-1 with a 4-1 Big 12 record.
  • They are 3-0 on the road.
  • Points against per game: 28.4 (76th)
  • Points for per game: 46.3 (3rd)
  • Passing yards a game: 353.6 (3rd)
  • Rushing yards a game: 195.7 (25th)

Texas Longhorns:

  • Texas is 4-5 with a 2-4 Big 12 record.
  • They are 2-4 at home.
  • Points against per game: 23.3 (52nd)
  • Points for per game: 22.3 (91st)
  • Passing yards a game: 231.8 (54th)
  • Rushing yards a game: 140.6 (79th)

What to watch for:

  • The Cowboys have put on a scoring clinic this season lead by Junior QB Brandon Weeden. Weeden has thrown for 2,982 yards 26 TDs and 9 Ints. Sophomore WR Justin Blackmon has looked better than ex-Cowboy Dez Bryant this year. Blackmon has 1,285 yards with 15 TDs on 75 catches. He has yet to have a game under 100 yards receiving and has a TD in every game he’s played in this year.
  • Texas better not fall asleep on Cowboy Senior RB Kendall Hunter. Hunter has 1,240 yards and 14 TDs this season. Hunter has only been held under 100 yards twice this season.
  • The only offense for Texas this season has been Sophomore QB Garrett Gilbert. Gilbert has 2,060 yard 7 TDs and 14 Ints.

This is one of the easier football picks of the week. The Cowboys have put up huge offensive numbers this year and don’t expect that to stop this week. Texas has not shown enough on offense to have me even consider taking the lousy 6 points. This one should be a blowout barring a Texas miracle. I like Oklahoma State by double figures.
