Here is what you need to know to gear up for the game, starting with our predictions first and with information at the bottom on how to tune in (and when).

Spread: Texas -1

Marshall Scott: Death, taxes and OSU being an underdog. OSU is the better of the two teams in this game, but I wonder a bit on how the Cowboys reset after such an intense game last night physically and emotionally. With that said, the Pokes most recently beat Texas in Stillwater despite having 22 turnovers and four assists. OSU is a better team now than it was then. 

Prediction: Oklahoma State 77, Texas 69

Kyle Boone: The first time OSU and Texas met it was decided by three points. The second time, we got a double OT thriller. So history suggests Saturday should be a dandy. I’m riding Pokes here and ready to be emotionally vulnerable for this team. Something about this unit is special and I am very much all in.

Prediction: Oklahoma State 75, Texas 72 (quadruple OT)

Kyle Cox: I followed my emotions and picked the Cowboys to beat Baylor by one when they were nine-point dogs and they double-covered (?), winning by nine. The Longhorns are no slouches, and they got to practice instead of face Kansas for their originally-scheduled late game on Friday. But I think Cade & Co. are in the zone and the Pokes are just too confident to not bring home some hardware. Give me the Cowboys in quadruple-coverage to earn a conference tourney crown.

Prediction: Oklahoma State 75, Texas 71
