Texas (4-1, 1-1 in the Big 12) fell from the top of the Big 12 standings after losing a 48-45 shootout to No. 5 West Virginia last week. Among the slew of other teams with a 1-1 conference record is Oklahoma (3-1, 1-1), which lost to the No. 6 Kansas State Wildcats, 24-19, on Sept. 22.
Another loss in the Big 12 will put the loser in a tough position going forward, adding another wrinkle to this long-time rivalry. Texas will also be trying to avenge last season's meeting, which saw the Longhorns get crushed, 55-17, by the Sooners in early October.
According to OddsShark, Oklahoma opened this week as three-point favorites, with the over/under set at 63.
Kickoff in the Cotton Bowl is set for 11 a.m. CT, and the game will be televised on ABC.
