Oklahoma-Texas Line

The Oklahoma-Texas line has opened at -9 in favor of the visiting Sooners.

Oklahoma comes into this game after destroying Ball State last week by a score of 62-6. 

Tony Jefferson fueled a second-quarter scoring surge with interceptions on three straight drives, and the second-ranked Sooners geared up for their rivalry game against Texas next week by beating Ball State 62-6 on Saturday night.

"It was kind of weird. It just kept happening over and over again," Jefferson said.

Oklahoma and Texas come into this game undefeated.  Texas beat Iowa State last week by a score of 37-14.

Freshman David Ash threw for 145 yards and his first two career touchdown passes and 17th-ranked Texas drilled mistake-prone Iowa State 37-14 in the Big 12 opener for both teams.

"Last year, Iowa State forced the turnovers and we didn't," Texas coach Mark Brown said. Saturday "we forced the turnovers. If you force a lot of turnovers and take care of the football like we did tonight you're going to win a lot of football games."
