The Texas Longhorns and Oklahoma Sooners never get an opportunity to renew hostilities because the hostilities never truly subside, but 10 months of back-and-forth come to a head on Saturday.

A year ago, the Longhorns and the Sooners split the season series, with Texas taking the regular season matchup and the Sooners claiming the Big 12 Championship game. This year could potentially be the same story with a second verse, as Texas and Oklahoma look to be the class of the conference.

Oklahoma, led by quarterback Jalen Hurts, looks to assert its dominance on the offensive side of the ball, with the nation’s top offense (648.3 YPG) and the No. 2 scoring offense in the country. They have been able to get the job done on the defensive side of the ball, as well, but they have not played a team with the firepower that Texas brings to the table.

Riley will use everything from three- and four-wide receiver sets to formations that include two tight ends or two running backs. The offense can attack a defense in a number of ways, and the versatility is one reason Riley’s Oklahoma offenses have been so potent.

Riley has always done a great job of adjusting his scheme to suit his personnel, which includes accentuating his quarterback’s strength while veiling his weaknesses.
