Time: 12 PM EST Saturday October 12, 2013 on ABC

The HUGE Red River Rivalry game this season has Oklahoma as the big betting favorite over Texas, as they are undefeated while the Longhorns are only 3-2. However, while Texas has lost 2 games and their defense has not played well they are 2-0 in Big 12 play and they already beat Kansas State, who won the Big 12 last season.

Oklahoma is 5-0 and 1-0 in Big 12 play and they have a great rushing offense. They have beaten 2 solid teams in their last 2 games in Notre Dame and TCU.

Last season Oklahoma crushed Texas 63-21 and they have not lost to the Longhorns since the 2009 season.

In their last games Oklahoma beat TCU 20-17 and Texas beat Iowa State 31-30.

Oklahoma is 3-2 ATS with an Over/Under record of 2-3 and Texas is 2-3 ATS with an Over/Under record of 4-1.

OU QB Blake Bell is 3-0 since becoming the starter and while he has a solid WR corps he did not have to air it out much in the win over TCU passing for 152 yards with 0 TD and 0 INT. Texas has the nationís 49th ranked pass defense and in the Iowa State game they gave up 244 passing yards.

Where the Longhorns have really struggled this season is defending the run with the nationís 117th ranked run defense. That is not good facing the Soonersí who rank 17th in rushing yards per game. Lead RB Brennan Clay (450 yards 3 TD) rushed for 111 yards in the TCU win and is averaging 6.6 yards per carry this season. He and fellow RB Damien Williams (230 yards 1 TD) are the players Texas has to stop if they are going to upset the Sooners.

Texas QB Case McCoy had a good game against Iowa State with 244 passing yards and 1 TD and 0 INT. WRís Jaxon Shipley and Mike Davis each has over 280 receiving yards on the season and will be facing a OU pass defense that ranks 10th in the nation.

The Sooners rank 23rd in run defense and they will face Texas RB Johnathan Gray, who has been playing well in the last few games and in his last 2 games he has combined for 230 yards and 3 TD.
