Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE
Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops is 23-13 at a neutral venue. Mack Brown, at Texas, is 20-14 at a neutral venue. So yeah, they're pretty close to each other in terms of records in neutral venues.
The real issue here is how Oklahoma can stop the Longhorns' offense.
Quarterback David Ash is legit and running backs Joe Bergeron and Malcolm Brown have been solid. Oklahoma also has a solid running back duo in Dominique Whaley and Damien Williams and a veteran quarterback in Landry Jones.
Brown and Bergeron combine to average 121.25 yards per game, while Whaley and Williams together average 134. Jones averages 259.3 passing yards per game while Ash averages 255.
The Sooners' defense averages 306.8 yards per game compared to the Longhorns' defense at 404.2. The difference is that Oklahoma hasn't played West Virginia or Oklahoma State, while Texas has played both; those inflated stats for Texas' pass defense may be over inflated.
Oklahoma is favored by three points over Texas. Brown is listed as questionable for this game and linebacker Jordan Hicks is also questionable. This will be a tight game early on but the Longhorns' offense is fairly lethal and I see them scoring more points in this game.
