6:15 PM EST. The Sooners have the best player in America in Trae Young and come into this one ranked #15 in the nation, so we understand that taking back a price with them might seem like the prudent play. However, the Sooners have a target on their backs and have played some tough games lately against Oklahoma State, Kansas, Alabama and Baylor. It is tiring to take a schools' best shot, but OU is doing it night after night. This will be no different, as they face off against Texas in the Red River Showdown.
Texas is 14-8 and trying to make its case to the NCAA Selection Committee. A win here will go a long way in doing so. The Longhorns dropped a close game to #10 Texas Tech last time out, but that overtime defeat should give the Longhorns the confidence that they can hang with some of the best squads in the country. It's rather curious that oddsmakers made Texas the betting chalk in this game, but the Sooners host #11 West Virginia on Monday Night and we would not be shocked if they got caught looking ahead here. Hook 'em Horns.
