Jason Radowitz is here with an NCAAF pick for Texas vs. Oklahoma. Come find out his Texas vs. Oklahoma odds, pick, and prediction for this CFB game.

Texas Longhorns vs. Oklahoma Sooners Prediction, Pick, Odds: Can Quinn Ewers Help Texas Close out Oklahoma?

The Oklahoma Sooners have lost two straight games to Kansas State and Oklahoma, allowing a combined 96 points in their last two games.

The road went to get much more manageable, with Oklahoma taking on Texas on Saturday. Texas has already lost two games this year. One came against Alabama, and another came against Texas Tech in overtime. Both were heartbreaking, single-digit losses.

But now it looks like Quinn Ewers will get the chance to lead the Texas Longhorns again after rehabbing a collarbone injury he sustained against Alabama three weeks ago.

Oklahoma is rebuilding after Lincoln Riley left for USC and took many of Oklahoma's athletes with him. The Sooner nation is going to have to be patient.

Can Texas hand Oklahoma its third straight loss?

Here are our picks, predictions, and odds for Saturday's game between the Texas Longhorns vs. Oklahoma Sooners.

Oklahoma vs. Texas Prediction

Both starting quarterbacks are now questionable for Saturday's game.

Dillon Gabriel of Oklahoma left last week's game against TCU with a head injury and a potential concussion. Meanwhile, Quinn Ewers is eying a return against Oklahoma this week for Texas.

We'll break this game down with the assumption that both of those quarterbacks mentioned above will be playing in this game.

Gabriel has thrown for 1215 yards this season and has 11 touchdowns without an interception. He can also play with his feet and is a dangerous runner when he finds a hole.

The offense has played well this year behind Gabriel, averaging over 475 yards of offense. They've also scored 37 points per game this season. Usually, 37 points per game is going to win you a lot of games.

However, that hasn't been the case. As I mentioned above, the Sooners have allowed 96 points in their last two games and have missed many tackles to begin the year.

Oklahoma's best portion of their defense is their front seven against the run. However, this season, the run game has allowed nearly 200 yards per game.

Meanwhile, Texas has averaged 417.4 yards per game with 36.8 points per game. The Texas offense hasn't performed better than Oklahoma, but that's due to quarterback play. With a healthy Ewers, there's plenty of reason to believe that the Longhorns will get better quarterback play.

Ewers was slicing and dicing against Alabama before his injury. He'll be able to break apart Oklahoma's defense.

The run game has also played well behind Bijan Robinson, who has eight touchdowns on 88 attempts. Robinson has rushed for nearly six yards a carry and has 515 yards on the season.

On the other hand, we saw what Texas is capable of on defense in big games. This team held Alabama to just 20 points with their backup quarterback under center. The Longhorns also just held West Virginia to 20 points last week.

They've been terrific against the run and look good in coverage to go along with it.

I'll take Texas as a -6.5 favorite against Oklahoma, even on the road. Quinn Ewers is special; if he gets the opportunity against Oklahoma, he'll take advantage of it.
