OUR PREDICTION: Oklahoma State had an emotional and controversial loss to Central Michigan, and wild back-and-forth thriller against Pittsburgh that had a lightning delay in the fourth quarter, and then a hard-fought defeat last Saturday at Baylor. That's a lot to endure in three weeks. Meanwhile, Texas is coming off a bye where Charlie Strong and Co. had an opportunity to work on some of the defensive issues that has plagued the team in the early going. The road team is a perfect 9-0 against the spread in the last nine meetings between these two teams.
