With the Big 12 opener against the Oklahoma State Cowboys on tap, how will Texas football prepare to face their biggest weapons?

In the Big 12 opener in Week 4, the Texas football program will try and take down the unranked but undefeated Oklahoma State Cowboys at home at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium under the lights. This will be the second primetime showdown under the lights at DKR this season that is aired in front of a national audience on ABC.

However, Texas will have to put their best foot forward to come out on top against an opponent like Oklahoma State that comes in having won four straight games. Meanwhile, Texas got back on track with a win over the Rice Owls last weekend by a score of 48-13. Texas dominated that game most of the way, and Rice didn’t even get points on the board until the backups were in for the fourth quarter.

Head Texas football coach Tom Herman has plenty to be confident about heading into Big 12 play. Just one loss through the non-conference slate makes for a good roll to be on with Oklahoma State on the horizon. Texas is favored to meet the rival Oklahoma Sooners in the Big 12 Championship Game by the end of the regular season, but they have to work through the Pokes first.

This game will see Texas likely to be favored by about a one possession margin at kickoff. Texas opened up as around a seven-point favorite over the Pokes. Kickoff is set for 6:30 p.m. CT, which is around the same time as the premier showdown between the Georgia Bulldogs and Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

Here’s a look into the 10 most problematic players for the Texas Longhorns football program to deal with heading into Big 12 play when they face the Oklahoma State Cowboys.
