The running game is solid as well with DeMarco Murray and Chirs Brown. The defense for Oklahoma is very good as well in college football betting.

That Oklahoma defense is going to be tested by Heisman frontrunner Colt McCoy and the Texas offense. McCoy has completed over 73 percent of his passes for 1,410 yards and 10 TDs as online betting stats show. He has a great wide receiver in Jordan Shipley who can impact NCAA football betting results. The Longhorns are seventh in total offense. The Texas defense is solid too, as they are allowing just 233 yards per game in college football betting.
