OSU defensive coordinator Glenn Spencer doesn't see it that way at all.
“They've got a lot of confidence right now, but it's not false,” Spencer said. “They've got it because they've earned it. To me, it's all about what's shown on the film, and they've grinded it out and earned some wins.
“It doesn't matter if they're down, if they're up. If they're down, it doesn't phase them. If they're down on the road, it doesn't faze them. It's like in their mind they're saying, ‘We're gonna find a way to get this done.'”
Like OSU, the Longhorns' schedule stiffens down the stretch, with the Cowboys' visit followed by a home contest against Texas Tech and a trip to Baylor to finish the regular season.
