2012 Alamo Bowl: Texas vs. Oregon State picks and predictions

US PRESSWIRE

The Longhorns are in for a battle against the Beavers, and many prognosticators see Texas going down in the Alamo Bowl on Saturday.

The No. 23 Texas Longhorns will play in their home state as they look to end their season on a high note in the Alamo Bowl on Saturday night, but they'll be up against a stern test in the No. 13 Oregon State Beavers.

Some predictions are leaning away from the Longhorns however, as CBSSports.com's six-man panel of college football prognosticators chose 5-1 in favor of the Beavers, with only blogger Tom Fornelli siding with Texas.

John Tamanaha of CollegeFootballTalk also chose Oregon State, saying he believes the Beavers will embrace heading into San Antonio and facing off against the Longhorns, who, he also mentions, have been too inconsistent this season. Tamanaha predicted a 27-21 Oregon State victory.

The Sporting News, however, sees Texas earning the win, citing their aforementioned home-field advantage as one of the biggest factors going in their favor.

Kickoff is set for 5:45 p.m. CT on Saturday evening, and the game can be seen on ESPN.
