College Football Week 7: #15 Texas Vs. #13 Oklahoma
|After losing to West Virginia last week, Mack Brown and Texas can’t afford to drop another Big 12 game so early. He’s been in Austin since 1998; he knows what this rivalry is all about.||Coaching||Oklahoma is in the same spot as Texas, 1-1 in the conference. Bob Stoops is 8-5 against Texas and his team got back on track last week against Texas Tech.|
|Texas, as expected, put up some big offensive numbers last week (45 points, 404 yards). David Ash continues to excel in the Longhorns’ offense; he didn’t turn it over against the Mountaineers.||Offense||Landry Jones looked sharp last Saturday, completing 25 of 40 passes with two touchdowns and no interceptions. He will get enough chances to make a run at the Heisman ceremony, but he must have a big game Saturday.|
|No matter how dangerous the aerial attack, a good pass rush can negate it. If Texas’ talented defensive front can get after Jones like it got after Geno Smith, it can cause havoc.||Defense||Texas Tech only gained 360 yards last week; for the season, the Sooners are 17th in total defense. They intercepted three passes, returning one for a score. Expecting a repeat of last year’s performance against Texas (a 55-17 victory) is unlikely, but it should give this unit confidence.|
|Penn State transfer Anthony Ferrera saw his first action as a Longhorn on Saturday (he had been injured). He made his first kick, a 38-yarder, but most people will remember the 41-yarder he missed with 5:25 left that would have tied the game.||Special Teams||Michael Hunnicutt has hit 5 of 6 field goals. Tress Way’s punts have led to minimal returns.|
