No. 12 Oklahoma State (8-1, 5-1) at No. 24 Texas (7-2, 6-0)

Line: Oklahoma State by 1
The race for the Big 12 title will get a little clearer after Saturday’s game between two of the top three teams. Both teams control their destiny — keep winning and a championship will be there at the end.
The Cowboys have a tough run, though, as they close with Baylor and Oklahoma. Texas gets Texas Tech and Baylor. There’s no question these are two of the conference’s most talented squads and this is a highly anticipated matchup.
The OSU-Texas game is just the start to a wild finish for the Big 12.
For Oklahoma State to win: The Cowboys’ defense is much better than in typical seasons. OSU is 20th nationally in scoring defense and nine in turnovers created. Texas coughed up the ball a lot last week against West Virginia and if Oklahoma State can create those types of turnovers it’s hard to imagine the Longhorns could overcome it again.
