Every Thursday during the season, the SoonerNation staff will answer a roundtable question about OU football. Leave a comment or talk about it in our "There's Only One" forum.

Today's question: Of the next three games for the Sooners, which will be toughest: vs. Kansas State, at Texas Tech or vs. Texas?

• This will be a defining stretch for the Sooners. Kansas State is playing as well as anyone in the Big 12, and OU traditionally saves its worst for Lubbock. But even though the Horns have questions at QB and offense in general, that still will be OU's toughest game of the three. This should be Texas' best team in three years, and with NFL talent scattered across the board defensively, the Horns will provide a huge test for Landry Jones and company. The Sooners did blow out Texas last year. It's difficult to see them doing that again.
