Staff predictions: Texas vs. Okla. State 

September, 28, 2012
Texas 37, Oklahoma State 31
As hard as it is to play at Boone Pickens Stadium, this game still will come down to the players. Texas' two-deep is better than the two-deep of Oklahoma State. This is the game where the Texas defense stands up, and while I do not think they will have the dominating stats in sacks and interceptions, they will disrupt the flow of the Cowboys offense, and that will be more important.

This is the game where David Ash throws his first pick but will show strong resolve. Texas fans will walk out of this game feeling better about the Longhorns as a whole and about Ash in particular. The Texas running game will be the star of the show again, along with the UT defensive line that will be working against a retooled Cowboys offensive line.
