Oklahoma State is a tough place to go on the road there’s no question. However, Texas has been flat out rolling since their opening week loss, and while it hasn’t always been pretty you can’t argue with the results. The Longhorns have the national playoffs in sight and know that a misstep could cost them everything so I’ll lay the field goal with the Longhorns who have had success against Oklahoma State on the road over the last few years.
