OU vs. Texas Predictions

Jeff Dillon, Bleacher Report
Okay, here we go. Texas' revenge campaign kicks off in Dallas against its bitter rival. Of course, the biggest question is how Sam Bradford's aching shoulder will hold up. He looked okay last week versus Baylor. But "okay" is not going to cut it against the Longhorns. Texas benefited last season from a huge game from Brian Orakpo. The Longhorns need another defensive player to step up in this year's game to put pressure on Bradford early (Sergio Kindle? Where are you?) If they get that, this one could be over early... Texas 38, Oklahoma 21

Texas is home to not only the most Fortune 500 companies, but also the best college football teams. No way Oklahoma beats Texas in anything... Texas 23, Oklahoma 13

Adam Abramson, Newsday

Texas has not faced a defense ranked in the Top 50 this season, and they haven't seen a front seven like the one Oklahoma features. I think if OU can get out to a fast start and pass the football, it will be enough to keep the Longhorns at bay... Oklahoma 31, Texas 27

Colt leads 'Horns on final drive, as Texas takes total command of the series... Texas 27, Oklahoma 24

Jenni Carlson, The Oklahoman
Bradford vs. McCoy will be grand fun, but this game turns on something a lot less sexy - offensive-line play. The Sooners have too many deficiencies up front; the Longhorns will take advantage... Texas 34, Oklahoma 24

Tim Griffin, ESPN.com

The Red River Rivalry will be hopping like usual. The Longhorns are coming off a disappointing offensive performance against Colorado where they did just enough before a blizzard of unconventional touchdowns put the game away. And Oklahoma will be back with Sam Bradford throwing again to a group of receivers who had the dropsies in the Sooners' victory over Baylor last week... Texas 31, Oklahoma 24

After missing three games with a shoulder injury, Bradford threw for 392 yards and a touchdown in last week's Big 12-opening 33-7 win over Baylor. But the most disturbing thing for Oklahoma had to be its 11 dropped passes. It's evident that Oklahoma doesn’t have the receiving talent of past years... Texas 27, Oklahoma 21
