Watching the Texas Longhorns last week was not an easy task, but it goes a long way to describing how the team has gone 1-6 SU and ATS in their past seven contests. It doesn’t get any easier for the Longhorns as they have the Red River Showdown with the Oklahoma Sooners this week.
- The OVER is 4-1 in the past five games between Oklahoma and Texas.
- The OVER is 12-6 in Oklahoma’s past 18 games.
- This is the eighth consecutive year that the Red River Showdown will be played at the Cotton Bowl.
