Here are the score predictions for Texas-Oklahoma.
ESPN published its Week 7 Big 12 score picks today.
Who’s being picked to win the Texas-Oklahoma game?
ESPN’s analysts differ.
One is taking the favored Sooners, the other is taking the Longhorns in an upset.
Trotter: The Red River rivals have each been all over the place this season, which makes this a difficult game to handicap. The Texas defense seems to be the real deal. But Oklahoma has the overwhelming edge at QB, with Baker Mayfield facing off against a true freshman in Sam Ehlinger, who figures to be wide-eyed in his Cotton Bowl debut. Oklahoma 30, Texas 27
Khan: Call me crazy, but Ehlinger has made me a believer. Clearly, no moment is too big for him after he led a go-ahead drive at USC and made big plays against Kansas State last week. Plus, Tom Herman has a knack for getting his teams to play their best in these kinds of games (remember, his Houston team beat Oklahoma last season). I’m taking Texas in the upset. Texas 34, Oklahoma 31
Oklahoma enters the game as a 7.5-point favorite.
