Undefeated No. 24 Oklahoma State travels to Austin to face a Texas team that is both coming off of a brutal 45-44 loss to Cal, but also an invigorating performance. The Longhorns seem to have found a quarterback in Jerrod Heard, who threw for 364 yards and ran for another 163 and three touchdowns against the Golden Bears. Heard replaces the ineffective Tyrone Swoopes, and barring injury, we expect it to stay that way. Oklahoma State booster T. Boone Pickens, one of the most prominent boosters of college sports in the country, wishes Swoopes was starting this weekend, however.

Pretty funny line from Pickens, unless you're Swoopes. We don't expect Charlie Strong to go fulfill his request.
