Texas vs. Oklahoma State has become a more under the radar rivalry in the past decade. The question still remains what time they will play in Week 6?

The Longhorns picked up a 32-27 win over TCU Saturday in Fort Worth for the first time since 2013. Texas was far from perfect to start the game, allowing TCU’s JD Spielman to return an 87-yard kick return to set up a 12-yard touchdown run from running back Zach Evans on the opening drive.
Texas also settled for field goals from senior Cameron Dicker on more than one occasion. The Longhorns were able to drive down the field against the Horned Frogs’ defense, but only found the end zone three times.
The real storyline came behind the legs of running back Bijan Robinson. In a Heisman-worthy performance, Robinson tallied 35 carries for a career-best 216 yards and two touchdowns to push Texas ahead.
On the team’s final drive, Robinson rushed eight times for two first downs, icing the game and leaving TCU without a chance to complete the comeback.
The Pokes improved to 5-0 to begin a season for the first time since 2015 after handling business against Dave Aranda’s improved Baylor roster. Offensively, there’s work to be done with quarterback Spencer Sanders, who threw three interceptions on the evening.

Texas hopes to take down the Sooners (5-0, 2-0 Big 12) for the time since 2018. Kickoff at the Cotton Bowl is set for 11 a.m.
