But now everyone in the Moore household has traded their burnt orange for bright orange.

“As soon as Oklahoma State was in the picture and the opportunity to play football here, there wasn't any question (where I would go to school),” Moore said. “The best thing about it now is my brother and both my parents are big Cowboy fans now. I know they're not going to be rooting for Texas at all this week.”

TURNOVER MARGIN BIG FOR COWBOYS, LONGHORNS

Much has been made about the return of OSU's opportunistic defense, which has 23 takeaways to help the Cowboys lead the Big 12 with a plus-11 turnover margin.

Texas has also been using a similar formula during its surge, tallying 22 takeaways and ranking second in the conference with a plus-9 turnover margin.

The Cowboys and Longhorns are forcing turnovers in different ways, however. OSU has 16 interceptions and seven fumble recoveries, while Texas has 14 fumble recoveries and eight interceptions.
