The Big 12 schedule is nearing its halfway point, and no team feels the pressure of time more acutely than the Texas Longhorns. Tuesday night’s win over Iowa State leaves Texas at 13-7 overall (3-4 in conference) and at a crossroads as far as its postseason fate is concerned.

With that in mind, here’s a look at the 11 games remaining on Texas’ schedule and a pick as to how the Horns will fare in each one.
