Week 6 NCAAF Picks – Texas at Oklahoma Side & Total


The 111th edition of the Red River Rivalry happens on Saturday whilst the Texas Longhorns play the Oklahoma Sooners. This Week 6 NCAAF Picks matchup which will be played at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas is seen on FS1. The Longhorns have fallen from the Top 25 while the Sooners are ranked No. 20. Everything appears to be falling apart for Texas as defensive coordinator Vance Beford was demoted and it’s rumored that head coach Charlie Strong will be fired following this season. The Sooners are 10.5-point favorites in this contest.

Week 6 NCAAF Picks Kickoff for this regular season Week 6 game is set for Saturday, October 8, 2016, at 12 p.m. ET at the Cotton Bowl.

The Sooners are going to be trying to find revenge as Texas was the only real team to beat Oklahoma in the normal season a year ago. The Longhorns jumped out to a 14-0 lead from the Sooners last season and held on for a 24-17 victory. It had been a shocking win as Oklahoma was a 15-point favorite in that contest.

The Sooners should manage to kick the Longhorns while they’re down. Texas started the summer season well with wins over Notre Dame and UTEP but their defense collapsed in losses to California and Oklahoma State. Charlie Strong will take control calling plays for the defense for whatever that is worth.

The Sooners feature a potent offense led by Baker Mayfield and Samaje Perine and they will be ready from the start. “We just gotta come out and set the tone,” Mayfield said. “It’s always a street fight when it comes to (Texas), so we gotta set the tone and be ready to go 15 rounds.”

The Longhorns have not played well in the month of October of late going 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games while the Sooners are 4-0 ATS in their last four games in October. Oklahoma is 7-1 ATS in their last eight conference games.

The Longhorns are 7-3-1 ATS in the last eleven meetings in this series.

This should be a high scoring contest and it is worth noting that four of the last five Texas conference games have gone over. 19 of the last 26 conference games for the Sooners have gone over.

Oklahoma has the superior offense and they are playing with revenge so I will lay the points and take the Sooners.

This should also be a game similar to last week’s contest between the Sooners and Horned Frogs that was very high scoring so I will also play the game over the total.
