Oklahoma State may be undefeated and have a five-game win streak in Austin, but they’re not favorites over No. 12 Texas on Saturday. The Longhorns are seven-point favorites and were an unanimous pick over the Cowboys on ESPN’s “College GameDay” from Desmond Howard, Lee Corso and guest picker and rapper/actor Jeezy.
Kirk Herbstreit did not select a winner because he’s calling the 6:30 p.m. game on ABC.
Earlier in the show, host Rece Davis called Mike Gundy the “landlord of Austin” for OSU’s series win streak in Austin.
“Gundy is probably charging Bevo rent,” Davis said. “And now Texas has to keep him from foreclosing again (Saturday night).”
The hype video for the game focused on OSU’s offensive attack, which Texas head coach Tom Herman called the “scariest environment imaginable” and defensive coordinator Todd Orlando saying 50-50 balls with OSU wide receiver Tylan Wallace being more like 90-10.
