Oklahoma football: The Oklahoman's picks for Saturday's OU-Texas game

FROM STAFF REPORTS Published: October 12, 2012

Here is a look at how The Oklahoman's college football coverage crew picked Saturday's game:

BERRY TRAMEL, Columnist

* OU 34, Texas 24: Sooners still have the edge at quarterback.

JENNI CARLSON, Columnist

* Texas 31, OU 28: One good game has yet to make me a believer in the Sooners, who will struggle with the Horns' run game.

JASON KERSEY, OU beat writer

* OU 31, Texas 24: QB David Ash and Texas' offense are exponentially better than anyone expected. That alone could've led to Red River supremacy — if the Longhorn defense was even half as good as its preseason hype indicated.

STEPHANIE KUZYDYM, OU beat writer

* OU 34, Texas 28: Oklahoma's defense solidifies talk that they're the top Big 12 defense with two picks and two fumble recoveries.

RYAN ABER, OU recruiting

* Oklahoma 24, Texas 14: Sooners find a groove in the running game as Damien Williams makes a splash in his first Red River game.

MIKE BALDWIN, Beat Baldwin

* OU 35, Texas 28:  The Sooners defense has played better than Texas' defense and gets a key stop.
