PICK: I’m going to stick with Texas. The last time these teams met, the Longhorns pulled off an 84-59 blowout win. Texas scored 37 points in the first and 47 in the second in an offensive barrage, and also held a 46-37 rebounding edge. It was a complete game for the Longhorns and a great victory. Texas has been shaky here and there this season, but I still like them on a cover in this matchup.
