 Storylines

 

Elimination is on the table for Saturday. The winner is still very much in the hunt for the conference title while the loser is most likely relegated to playing the role of spoiler.

Oklahoma State and Texas take completely different approaches to offense but the physicality of the Longhorn defense is what could make a significant difference in this one. The biggest story to watch here is going to be Texas defensive line against Oklahoma State’s offensive line.
