Oklahoma State Vs Texas: Longhorns Look To Bounce Back

Texas faces another tough Big 12 test when unbeaten Oklahoma State comes to town.

In his time at Texas, Mack Brown is 13-0 in the week after the Oklahoma game. That's partly a reflection of Brown's ability to rally the troops even after devastating losses like 63-14 in 2000 and 65-13 in 2003, but it's also a reflection of the relative weakness of the rest of the Big 12 in Brown's time at Texas.

That won't be the case this week, as Brown's young Texas squad returns to Austin to face Mike Gundy's Oklahoma State Cowboys, ranked No. 6 in the country.

The Cowboys are led by a high-powered aerial attack that put up 70 points against Kansas last week. Justin Blackmon, who won the Fred Biletnikoff award for the nation's top WR as a sophomore last year, has to be eager to face a young secondary that was lit up by Ryan Broyles and Kenny Stills in Dallas.
