Texas vs. Oklahoma preview

Texas is a 3.5-point favorite over Oklahoma a few hours before tip-off (per FanDuel). The line moved one point in Texas’ direction in the last 24 hours or so.

If the Longhorns do get the best of standout senior guard Grant Sherfield and the Sooners, it would be the fourth straight win in this series for this squad. Texas swept the season series over two games against the Sooners last year.
