DALLAS, TX, Sporting Alert – Jalen Hurts and No. 6 Oklahoma will take No. 11 Texas in a Big 12 showdown at Cotton Bowl in Dallas, on Saturday and live television coverage will be on Fox.
The Fox Network coverage will see Gus Johnson, Joel Klatt and Jenny Taft on the call.
Hurts, the Alabama transfer, has been outstanding for the Sooners (5-0, 2-0 Big 12) so far this season, passing for 1,523 yards with 14 touchdowns, and he’s expected to be a handful for Longhorns’ defense on the road.
In fact, according to ESPN’s Football Power Index, Oklahoma could have its own way this weekend and gives them a 79.7 percent chance to win today and stay undefeated on the season.
Texas, meanwhile, comes into this contest confident that quarterback Sam Ehlinger is capable of take the spotlight away from Hurts and thrust his way into the Heisman Trophy conversation.
The Longhorns (4-1, 2-0) scored an upset win in last year’s regular-season contest, although Oklahoma returned to win the rematch in the Big 12 title game.
Texas defeated West Virginia 42-31 last Saturday, while the Sooners registered a 45-20 win at Kansas a week ago.
Other games going off at 12 ET involving AP ranked teams are No. 3 Georgia welcoming South Carolina at Sanford Stadium in Athens, live on ESPN and No. 23 Memphis at Temple at the Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, while No. 16 Michigan goes to Illinois live on ABC and WatchESPN.
