The undefeated teams will square off in the 2023 Red River Showdown on Saturday when the No. 3 Texas Longhorns (5-0) take on the No. 12 Oklahoma Sooners (5- 0).

Oklahoma State has won all five games by at least two touchdowns, including a 50-20 victory over Iowa State last week.
Kickoff is scheduled for noon ET on Saturday at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas.

Why Texas has coverage
Oklahoma had four straight meetings between the two teams before last season, when Texas won 49-0, the largest win in series history. Longhorns quarterback Quinn Ewers threw for 289 yards and four touchdowns in that game and has thrown for 1,358 yards and 10 touchdowns this season. He has completed nearly two-thirds of his passes and ran for five more scores, helping the Texans win all five games by double digits.
Sophomore running back Jonathan Brooks rushed for 218 yards and two touchdowns in the Longhorns’ 40-14 win over Kansas last week, his third straight game with over 100 yards. Their balanced offense has scored at least 31 points in all five wins this season, holding opponents to 14 points or fewer in four of those games. Oklahoma State has yet to face a ranked team this season, and the Longhorns are confident after a blowout win last season. Find out which team to pick on SportsLine.
Why Oklahoma has coverage
Oklahoma State is having a nice bounce-back season in Year 2 under head coach Brent Venables. Like Texas, the Sooners were dominant on both sides of the ball early in the season. They didn’t face a Longhorns-level opponent, but they performed well in every game. Oklahoma State is 5-0 this season by an average score of 47.4-10.8.
The Sooners’ comeback was led by a dominant defense and the performance of senior quarterback Dillon Gabriel. The former UCF transfer entered the 2023 Red River Showdown completing 75.2 percent of his passes for 1,593 yards, 15 touchdowns and two interceptions. He also rushed for 95 yards and four scores on touchdowns. Find out which team to support on SportsLine.
