On Saturday afternoon, the Texas Longhorns (2-3) will hope that their defense can step up when they face the potent offense of the #11 Oklahoma Sooners (4-1). In 2013, Texas beat Oklahoma 36-20 at home.
Texas couldn't score a touchdown until the fourth quarter in their game against Baylor last Saturday and ended up losing 28-7. The Longhorns were just 6-for-17 on their third down chances in that game and they turned the ball over three times.
The Longhorns have really struggled to pass the ball this season, averaging just 184.8 passing yards per game through five games. Wide receiver John Harris has been Texas' top offensive contributor this season by catching 36 passes for 370 yards and four touchdowns. Quarterback Tyrone Swoopes has thrown for 734 yards with five touchdowns and three interceptions.
Last weekend, Oklahoma lost for the first time this season when they were beaten 37-33 to TCU on the road. Their defense gave up 469 yards in that loss and their offense committed two crucial turnovers to help give TCU the win.
Oklahoma is scoring 42.4 points per game this season while only giving up 20.6 points per game. Sooners running back Samaje Perine has averaged 5.6 yards per carry this season and he already has eight touchdowns. Junior wide receiver Sterling Shepard has 30 receptions this season for 651 yards and three scores.
