Texas star WR Mike Davis will not be playing against Oklahoma in the Red River Rivalry tomorrow.

The freshman is Texas' leading receiver, and the only pass-catcher who's really been worth a damn for the Longhorns all year.

He has 16 catches for 183 yards and two touchdowns this year. After tweaking his knee against UCLA, he left the game and didn't return.

The loss is terrible news for Longhorns fans, as Texas loses really their only consistent receiver. For a sputtering offense, this could ruin chances for a huge upset in Dallas.

Unless another receiver can step up and play consistently for Texas, the likelihood of Texas beating the Sooners this Saturday is nearly done. Davis brings a Jordan Shipley style of receiving, and without his presence on the field, Garrett Gilbert will be lacking anything close to a go-to target.

Hopefully, Texas will be able to get the run game going, because the passing game won't be doing a whole lot.
