The No. 7 Texas Longhorns are early 11.5-point favorites over the No. 20 Oklahoma State Cowboys for next Saturday’s Big 12 Championship game at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, according to DraftKings.* Kickoff is at 11 a.m. Central on ABC.

Texas secured its spot in the Big 12 Championship game with its 57-7 win on Friday over Texas Tech in Austin, ensuring a simple Saturday scenario with Oklahoma State advancing with a win and Oklahoma backing its way in with a loss by the Cowboys.

Down 24-6 at halftime on Saturday, Oklahoma State rallied against BYU in Stillwater for a 40-34 double-overtime win to advance to the title game next Saturday against Texas.

In the previous meeting between the two programs, Oklahoma State scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter of a 41-34 win over Texas in Stillwater last season. The Longhorns hold a 24-11 advantage in the all-time series, although the Cowboys have won six of the last eight matchups. Texas and Oklahoma State have never played previously for the Big 12 championship.
