Back on Track? Game Predictions for Texas vs. Oklahoma State

The staff of LonghornsCountry.com gives their way-too-early predictions for the matchup between the Texas Longhorns and Oklahoma State Cowboys

On Saturday, the young receiver finally broke out, finishing with seven receptions for 88 yards and a touchdown.

This win looks good on paper for the Longhorns but much more work needs to be done after the blowout loss to Arkansas.

More specifically, the offensive line once again struggled at times throughout Saturday’s win, especially on the left side of the line occupying by Christian Jones and Denzel Okafor

Nevertheless, Thompson will look to keep the momentum going when the Longhorns take on Texas Tech in their first conference matchup next Saturday.
