Texas player has ominous warning for Oklahoma’s Jalen Hurts

But Texas wound up instead recruiting Shane Buechele, and Hurts found a home at Alabama, where he was 26-2 as a starter and helped the Crimson Tide to a pair of College Football Playoff appearances.

Trey Sermon, Oklahoma ($5,500 on DK, $8,800 on FD) - Sermon feels underpriced given the likelihood the Sooners will pile on points, and his usage in the passing game. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 75 points. Sam Ehlinger has thrown for 1,448 yards and 17 touchdowns to lead the offense while rushing for 236 yards and three touchdowns. The Longhorns could be without their two primary safeties, Chris Brown and DeMarvion Overshown, due to injuries.

I can't see the Longhorns defense slowing down Hurts and the rest of the Oklahoma offense. Oklahoma may put up a lot of points, but the Sooners give up a lot, too.

The Longhorns are not as talented as the Sooners, but they are not afraid of them either. With a team that has won four straight Big 12 Titles like Oklahoma as the challenger on October 12 at the Texas State Fairgrounds in Dallas, there is going to be plenty on the table for what could be a promising 2019 campaign. Also, if we are honest, OU hasn't really faced anyone this season. Oklahoma's resume has wins over South Dakota, Kansas, Texas Tech, and the horrendous UCLA Bruins. The Sooners (644 ypg) and Longhorns (484 ypg) are going to make big plays on offense, and it's about the team that handles the swings and the sudden changes.

Texas has battled injuries in the secondary, but the Longhorns still have nine interceptions and 20 passes breakups this season. Keaontay Ingram is the team's leading rusher with 313 yards and three touchdowns while Devin Duvernay is the leading receiver with 45 catches for 463 yards and four scores. Nevertheless, it was an excellent time for the defensive unit to perform well, just a week before the Red River showdown.

With that said, an 11-point spread during a rivalry game seems a little high for my taste. Slide or face getting hit hard. Take the points. Bet Texas +11.
