No. 6 Texas will be looking for its seventh consecutive win this season with a winning performance in Stillwater on Saturday night. The Inside Texas staff delivers the Texas-Oklahoma State previews, the inside team info/injury reports, and the latest movement in the #fUTure19 class. It's at T. Boone Pickens at 7pm (CT) on ABC and the Primer gets you ready.
Injury Report QB, RB, LB), team news, and our State of Recruiting talks about four star WR target Marcus Washington and where UT coaches are headed tonight. Plus, old targets hitting up the Texas coaching staff recently. Being 6-1 (first in Big 12) and No. 7 in the nation has that effect in the Humidor.
What's the best way to get recruits to watch OU football? Give them tickets to a Texas game. This year is the Sooners' turn to host and there will be a few common targets in attendance. More important than who is at the game is the outcome. The virtuous circle of winning begetting elite recruits begetting winning would get a nice boost if Texas could pull out the win. If this team sticks to its profile of playing 'up' to its competition we should be in for a dandy 24 hours time.
In recent days I've mentioned this Texas team seems pretty similar to Kansas State teams of the past. The offense isn't explosive (though there is big play ability) and the team is physical and mentally resilient for the most part. They want to win wars of attrition and in recent weeks that approach has worked.
