• NO. 3 OKLAHOMA VS. NO. 11 TEXAS (IN DALLAS)
What we've learned about the Sooners
They start slow but finish fast. In the last two weeks (wins over Missouri and Ball State), Oklahoma has not taken off until the second quarter, when it has outscored its opponents 42--3.
What we've learned about the Longhorns
Coordinator Manny Diaz's aggressive defense is good enough to upset the Sooners. The unit ranks 12th in points allowed (14.8) and has forced seven turnovers in its last two games.
What it will mean on Saturday
If Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones can avoid interceptions—which he's had trouble doing away from Norman—he'll make just enough plays against Texas's young cornerbacks for a close win.
• NO. 17 FLORIDA AT NO. 1 LSU
What we've learned about the Gators
They're not back yet, as last Saturday's beatdown by Alabama proved. And the offense will be Tiger bait playing without quarterback John Brantley, who injured his right leg in the loss.
