Randy’s Free Pick
The Texas Longhorns are the better team, and they have the ability to blow the doors off at home. However, OK State has been competitive this season, which includes wins on the road. Oklahoma State is one of the best defenses in the country and can hang around despite not shooting well. Give me the points.
