CFB: Oklahoma State at Texas (3:30 PM ET, ABC)

One more unbeaten will certainly fall when Oklahoma State travels to Austin to do battle with the top-ranked Longhorns


2008-10-24

One more unbeaten will certainly fall when Oklahoma State travels to Austin to do battle with the top-ranked Longhorns, the highlight of an afternoon stuffed with great college football wagering action. Texas is a near two-TD favorite and backed by 70% of the bettors at Sportsbook.com.

"James Bond, this is Q. Your assignment this week might be one the most demanding of your entire career. Though I'm not sure if you will ultimately be successful James, you are the only agent we have that has the ability to find this answer. Your quest is to enlighten the rest of the world outside of Austin, TX and Stillwater, OK, the names of players for Texas and Oklahoma State, not named Colt McCoy or Zac Robinson. Good Luck James and be safe". In spite of having two of the most prolific offenses in the country, with teams a combined 14-0 and ranked in the Top 8, also having covered all 13 lined games, most people don't know much about either squad, outside of Big 12 country.

Texas has the aforementioned McCoy and the best pair of receivers you never heard of in Quan Cosby and Jordan Shipley. Defensive end Brian Orakpo is the closest player on that side of the ball to being recognized with his ability to terrorize quarterbacks. The Longhorns are starting to assemble a running attack with Chris Ogbonnaya and Cody Johnson is doing exceptionably well in picking up the scent of the goal-line in short yardage situations. This is game three of coach Mack Brown's four-game Big 12 gauntlet. Texas is 11-2 ATS at home against opponent with revenge and off of two straight wins.

Oklahoma State has been known for two things recently, where Boone Pickens has given a lot of his money to upgrade many aspects of the university and coach Mike Gundy's always humorous rant that still plays well on You Tube. After going thru the pastry line, Oklahoma State upset Missouri 28-23 to earn first Top 10 ranking in 20 years and lassoed an improving Baylor 34-6. With another upset win on the road, Robinson becomes a Heisman dark horse, making a move on the outside. The Cowboys offensive line is underrated outside the Big 12 and will have a real test with Texas. Okie State is 5-8 ATS as road underdogs under coach Gundy.

If this game isn't in your area, find a place to watch it, must seen TV for college football fans and bettors. Watch Dez Bryant at receiver and Brandon Pettigrew at tight end for Oklahoma State. The Cowboys are 6-1 ATS in October coming into this one. Texas and McCoy are playing at such a high level it is sick. McCoy has completed 81.2 percent of his last 197 passes (not a misprint) and the Longhorns are 12-2 ATS in home games off three straight wins against conference rivals. What the defensive coordinators come up with and how their defenses execute determines outcome.
