Texas -13½ at Kansas (66½)
Having the Longhorns come to Kansas is like throwing kerosene on a fire. Texas is fifth in the nation in scoring. In 10 games, the Horns have put up at least 42 point nine times and have not been held below 28. Contrast that with Kansas, which in its last three losses has yielded an average of 45 points. It especially wasn’t pretty against No. 1 ranked Texas Tech, which rolled by 42.
The first inclination in most any Big 12 game is to look at the over, which seems reachable for Texas alone. Add to that fact Texas is desperate for a victory by margin in the very tight BCS poll in which Oklahoma stands to benefit from a very strong late schedule with remaining games against Texas Tech and Oklahoma State. Texas only has a weak Texas A&M at home in the season finale. A close game with Kansas could really hurt Texas in the poll. Look for Colt McCoy & Co. to put at least 50 on the board. TEXAS.
