On Saturday, the No. 11 Texas Longhorns and the No. 6 Oklahoma Sooners will meet for the annual grudge match between the two teams, with the Sooners a 10-point favorite over the Longhorns, according to Bovada.

Oklahoma enters the game with a 5-0 record and a 76.1 percent chance to win the Big 12 Conference, according to ESPN’s FPI rankings, following a 45-20 win over Kansas in Lawrence last weekend. FPI isn’t particularly a fan of the 4-1 Longhorns following the win in Morgantown, as Texas only has a 9.9 percent chance to win the conference and slots Texas as the No. 20 team nationally.

The FPI gives Oklahoma a 79.8 percent chance to win the game.

Cameron Dicker’s 40-yard field goal pushed Texas to a 48-45 victory over Oklahoma in the Cotton Bowl last season, but the Sooners got revenge in the Big 12 Championship game in December with a 39-27 win.

The two teams first met in 1900, with Texas holding a 62-47-5 record against its Red River rival.
