Oklahoma football: Our picks for OU vs. Texas Tech

FROM STAFF REPORTS Published: October 25, 2013

Here is a look at how our crew picked Saturday's OU-Texas Tech game:

RYAN ABER, OU beat writer

* OU 28, Texas Tech: 21: If Texas Tech can gash OU with the run, it could be a different story but the Red Raiders' offensive strength is OU's defensive strength and the Sooners are able to slow that down just enough to give Tech its first loss.


* OU 35, Texas Tech 31: The OU offense gets off to the fast start that has eluded it in recent weeks. Texas Tech's offense will make it a nailbiter, though.

JASON KERSEY, OU beat writer

* Texas Tech 38, OU 34: Oklahoma's defense again takes too long to get situated, and Blake Bell and the offense don't have the time — or the firepower — to mount a comeback.


* OU 27, Texas Tech 20: Blake Bell outplays Davis Webb and stakes his claim as the Big 12's second-best quarterback. For what that's worth.
