This game features two strong quarterbacks with both having the ability to run or pass. Jalen Hurts will display much more athleticism and his scrambling and running abilities that will cause many problems for the Texas defense. The game will be played at the Cotton Bowl and although it is like a home game for the Longhorns it is not like playing at Darryl Royal Memorial Stadium in Austin and that takes away that advantage for Texas. Final Score Prediction, Oklahoma Sooners win and cover ATS 42-28
