OSU's offensive line vs OU's defensive line
OSU: The Cowboy offensive line has been the key to an OSU attack which ranks No. 1 nationally in total offense. They give Brandon Weeden time to go through his progressions and give Hunter lanes to run through. But this group struggled at times against Texas A&M, which brought pressure similar to what OU will bring to the table.
OU: Jeremy Beal is a problem for any offense, the consistent pressure he provides makes life a lot easier for OU's secondary. An unstoppable pass rusher can be any offense's primary concern. But the Sooners' interior has been hit by the injury bug and former defensive end Pryce Macon could make just his second career start in the interior.
