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.
JENNI CARLSON, Columnist
* 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.
BERRY TRAMEL, Columnist
* 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.
