The next test up on the docket for No. 10 Texas basketball and acting head coach Rodney Terry comes on Jan. 24 against the Oklahoma State Cowboys and head coach Mike Boynton. Texas will return home to the friendly confines of the Moody Center for the first time since the Jan. 14 win over the Texas Tech Red Raiders.
Terry and the Longhorns continued their comeback ways in their last game, which resulted in a big 69-61 win on the road at WVU Coliseum in Morgantown on Jan. 21 over the West Virginia Mountaineers. The triumph over West Virginia means that Texas has now won three of its last four games.
Texas is sporting a record of 16-3 (5-2 Big 12) heading into this matchup against Oklahoma State this week.
Meanwhile, Oklahoma State comes into this one riding a high after downing the No. 12 Iowa State Cyclones at home at Gallagher-Iba Arena in Stillwater on Jan. 21 by the final score of 61-59. Oklahoma State has a little bit of a run of momentum at the moment having won its last two games, both of which came at home over Iowa State and the Oklahoma Sooners.

Texas vs. Oklahoma State preview
The first matchup between these two teams this season resulted in a solid 56-46 win on the road in Stillwater for the Longhorns. That was one of the biggest road wins of the season so far for the Longhorns.
But Oklahoma State has a little bit of a hot streak going lately. And the Pokes are no stranger to giving Texas all it can handle in Austin. While Texas has won the overwhelming majority of the matchups against Oklahoma State on its home court in the last decade or so (having won six of the last seven), the last few were a bit of a different story.
Oklahoma State played Texas within five points in the last two seasons. And three years ago, the Pokes beat Texas by more than 20 points in Austin.
However, Texas figured out a way to keep Oklahoma State’s already challenged offense (Pokes rank last in the Big 12 at a clip of just over 61 points per game this season) even more limited than usual. If Texas can hold Oklahoma State under 50 or 55 points, I like the chances for Terry’s squad to come out on top in the end.
