PICK OF THE WEEK – RED RIVER RIVALRY!!
The #12 ranked and 30 point favorite Oklahoma Sooners were shocked in Norman last week by the Iowa State Cyclones whom the up and coming Texas Longhorns had defeated the week prior. This makes the 112th meeting of these two in the Red River Showdown, Rivalry, Classic, Shootout or whatever you’d like to call it, the marquee matchup of this coming College Football Saturday.
What’s not shocking is my terrible pick from last Wednesday when I boldly predicted Nebraska would defeat Wisconsin 38 to 34. Wisconsin got the 38 and the decisive victory and the driver’s seat in the Big Ten West. Forget that! New Pick of the Week, New Teams, RED RIVER RIVALRY!
I’ll get right to it…. HOOK ‘EM! I like the Longhorns in the Cotton Bowl. The thought of BOOMER SOONER dropping 2 straight with Heisman hopeful Baker Mayfield at the helm seems highly unlikely and that’s exactly why I think it will happen. Another ridiculous reason? I love that dang Longhorn Logo!! Bevo’s going to don the Golden hat this year: Texas 44, Oklahoma 41 in Over time!
