Chat wrap: Previewing OU-Texas
Here are a few highlights from the chat:
Nicolai (Denmark, Europe): Who has the edge, Oklahomas offense or Texas' defense?
Jake Trotter: I give the edge to Texas' defense. But I also give the edge, probably a bigger edge, to OU's defense over Texas' offense.
Carter Strickland: Toss up for me. Really don't know how good the Texas defense is going to be until it plays WVU the week before.
Shane (Oklahoma City): With the questions remaining for Texas offensively, QB play & passing game, can UT seriously challenge West Virginia for second place in the Big 12?
Jake Trotter: No question. In fact, I'm sure many people will pick UT to finish 2nd in their preseason Big 12 polls. The key game for Texas will be Sept. 29 in Stillwater. Win there, and 2nd place is there for the taking (and maybe first place if UT can upend OU).
Carter Strickland: Have you seen WVU's defense? Yes. Texas is going to use the running game and its defense to try and slow down Geno Smith. WVU has some inflated stats because of the conference it has played in. KSU is the team to beat for the No. 2 spot in the B12.
Brennan (Austin): Which freshmen are already creating a buzz in Norman and Austin?
