The Oklahoman’s college football coverage team picks the OU-Texas game: →Berry Tramel: Texas, 22-21 I always pick who won last year, though if OU wins, this will be three straight years that theory has gone poof.
→John Rohde: Texas, 27-20 Before fall practice began, Sam Bradford said he wanted to prove to pro scouts what he could do on the run. He’ll get his chance Saturday against some blitzing Longhorns. →Jenni Carlson: Texas, 34-24 The quarterback battle will be grand fun, but this game will turn on something much less sexy. The Oklahoma offensive line remains suspect, and that gives Texas an edge. →Jake Trotter: Texas, 27-24 Sooners play their best game of the year, but Colt McCoy leads ’Horns on a game-winning drive →David Ubben: Texas, 27-21 The Sooners might have two of their three injured stars back, but the third, Jermaine Gresham, is the guy they need to beat the Longhorns. →Brandon Chatmon: Texas, 35-28 The Sooners’ lack of receiving threats has Sam Bradford on the run for most of the game, and OU loses despite a late rally. →John Helsley: Texas, 27-21 Sooners took a much better team into the Cotton Bowl last year and lost by 10. Until now, Texas has been bored. The Horns turn up the intensity today.
