College GameDay crew picks in favor of Oklahoma State beating Texas

Set to partake in yet another Big 12 battle on Saturday morning is the Oklahoma State Cowboys (5-1, 2-1) and Texas Longhorns (3-3, 2-1).

Can Oklahoma State make history and become the first team to ever top the Longhorns in Austin five times in a row?

The ESPN College GameDay crew picked in favor of that happening, with Desmond Howard picking the Pokes in a blowout and Lee Corso favoring the Cowboys due to an explosive offense, while Kirk Herbstreit expects a close Oklahoma State win. Former Penn State running back and celebrity guest picker Ki-Jana Carter picked the Pokes, as well.

Earlier in the show, however, David Pollack picked the Horns to finally get over the hump against an elite opponent and handing Oklahoma State its second loss of the season.

The Cowboys sit at No. 10 on the season with their lone blemish coming at home to then-No. 16 TCU. Aside from that hiccup, though, Oklahoma State has thrived, thanks in large part to the nation’s top-ranked options and its bevy of weapons. Texas, on the other hand, is still seeking a staple victory entering the second half of the season after falling just short against USC and Oklahoma in previous opportunities.

Will it be the Pokes who make history today in Austin, or can Texas secure the first major win of the Tom Herman era and topple Oklahoma State’s College Football Playoff aspirations along the way?

Oklahoma State and Texas will take the field at 12:00 p.m. ET on ABC.
