With another weekend of great college football games on tap, it's inevitable that a few upsets will occur. If you're wondering which team should be "upset alert" today, Kirk Herbstreit has highlighted an important matchup in the Big-12.

Although Herbstreit gave credit to the No. 6 Texas Longhorns for constantly manufacturing wins, he thinks Tom Herman's team will have trouble today in Stillwater.

The Oklahoma State Cowboys have been reeling lately, but the ESPN college football analyst believes they'll present a touch challenge to Texas.


"Sam Ehlinger has to be a healthy tonight to help their run game," Herbstreit said. "This is a team every week that has to be able to say, 'we can continue to do this' and go get it done. This will be a tough game on the road."

Herbstreit highlights Ehlinger's injury to his shoulder, as he's dealing with pain in his rotator cuff. When he's healthy, the Longhorns have one of the best dual-threat quarterbacks in the entire nation.

In the event that he can't play the entire game, Herman could hand his offense over to Shane Buechele.

Texas and Oklahoma State will kick off at 8:00 p.m. ET.

Do you think the Cowboys will shock the Longhorns?
