OUR PICK: The over is a perfect 4-0 in the last four meetings between these two teams when Oklahoma is listed as the "home" team. The over is also 9-3 in the Sooners' last 12 games overall, is 20-7 in their last 27 games in October, and is 18-7 in their last 26 games after allowing more than 450 total yards in their previous contest. On the other side, the over is 4-1 in the Longhorns' last five conference games and is 6-2 in their last eight games overall. Based on how these two teams have played defensively, this should be a back-and-forth track meet from the start.
