Texas Football: 5 Keys to the Game vs. Oklahoma State
Brendan Maloney-US PRESSWIRE

Conference play arrives in a big way this weekend for the No. 12 Texas Longhorns as they travel up to Stillwater, the hostile home of the Oklahoma State Cowboys. Plenty of storylines to watch for in this game that could determine whether Texas goes 4-0 for the fifth time in six years.

Neither of these teams are short on mystery heading into this heavily anticipated tilt. Oklahoma State's head coach has yet to rule out freshman Wes Lunt (knee) in favor of dual-threat quarterback J.W. Walsh. And Texas head coach Mack Brown has been mum on whether he'll be starting RB Joe Bergeron (shoulder) or if leading-tackler Jordan Hicks (hip) will be ready to go come Saturday.

What is for certain is that these are two very talented teams on both sides of the ball and the result will give us our first fair assessment of either team's postseason aspirations.

Here are the keys to Texas pulling out a road win over the Cowboys and putting them one step closer to re-establishing themselves as a national power.
