College Football Betting Preview
Oklahoma State (7-0) at Texas (7-0)
Saturday, 3:30 pm Eastern – ABC
SBG Global Opening Line: Texas – 12.5 , Total 70
The top ranked Texas Longhorns get another test on Saturday as they host #7 Oklahoma State. Texas has beaten Oklahoma and Missouri the last two weeks to take over the top spot in the polls. Head coach Mack Brown is pleased but knows there is more to do. “We’re playing at a high level, but we’re not a great team yet,” he said. “We’ve got to be a great team for 60 minutes for the next five weeks to get us the chance to play in the (Big 12) championship game, which is what we want. We’re at a point (right now), unless we play well, we’ll get beat.”

There are nine remaining unbeaten teams in major college football and one of them will fall after this game is over. Oklahoma State is the surprise team in this game as very few experts had them pegged for a great season. The Cowboys are trying not to get caught up in all of the hype. “If you try to make one game bigger than the next, then guys might be pressing and trying to do too much,” quarterback Zac Robinson said, “We’re going to go out and just play the way we do. Our team’s so young that they don’t know any better than to do that.” The Cowboys should be able to score against a Texas defense that is giving up 275 yards per game through the air. The problem for Oklahoma State will be stopping Heisman Trophy contender Colt McCoy who has been nearly flawless. “We’re doing a lot of really good things,” said McCoy, “(The Cowboys) can score pretty much every time they have the ball, so we’re going to have to keep playing to that standard and keep getting better.”
