With the Big 12 so wide open during the 2012 college football season, the Red River Rivalry will have a huge impact on who comes out of the conference. Both the Oklahoma Sooners and Texas Longhorns enter the Week 7 meeting with one loss and are ranked in the Top 15 of the latest AP Poll.
This has always been one of the more historic college football rivalries and has been decided by 10 points or less in four of the last five meetings. And while another close game should be expected, especially with so much on the line, the Oklahoma Sooners should end up running away with this matchup.
Last year, the Sooners were able to drop over 400 total yards of offense and won the game by 38 points, which was the fifth largest margin of victory between these two teams.
Here is why you can expect another blowout by Oklahoma in the 2012 version of this historic matchup.
