"Things just there was no rhythm in the play Kerr and and that I was on me eight one season a rhythm he can see it being more afraid of it. quicker pace he had his game I go do a better job. I I mean I respect Kingsbury saying that been self out there right we've done so many disparate views different views on Murray from people we really respect here on the show you just heard Jake Trotter who covered coloring college now covers enough areas beyond say he will underestimate his accuracy and his ability as a passing quarterback with the guys that are often pressing on the show cover the NFL for a living come on here and say what I think which is a kind of them or that they are Sean Connery it's gonna be really interesting obviously is the which way it goes always offer in yesterday. if you are a believer in Kyler Murray you can point to the fourth quarter and you can say there it is there's the calamari if you're a doubt or you can say you know what they were three quarters years during the headlights and it was against map Patricia sorry Detroit fans alliance team there was a. disaster in terms of the commander of the end of the game. all the kids excess will more tell the better the game is by using it interesting how divergent views are on marine how divergent he was as a player in that first three quarters stretch version is overtime in the fourth quarter regulation number two it was a great performance for cowboys quarterback dak Prescott yeah he's so good is so good the cowboys.

"What they did the off season trading, Adele bolstering the defensive line drafting green Williams, and then what has happened to the AFC north and, and those teams in chipped away against a little bit. So. Are they the favorite to win the north FBI thinks they are at thirty five point five percent? You know, even they haven't wanted division title since eighty nine which is, I think the longest active drought. It would have to be right. Nine wins feels like sort of the barometer for them. And I look at the schedule. It's not it's, it's, it's not it's not the most difficult in the NFL by any means it feels like they can get their to ten wins. I mean, I think that that is there for them because of who they play. In the division. But also, you know how much better this team is compared to what where it was two years ago. Yeah. I was gonna ask you. I mean I, I was gonna actually with that. But I'll just get to it now. In terms of fan base expectations. This is a team that was seven eight and one last year there year removed from being an Owen sixteen team. And then, before that, I wanted fifteen team, this is eighteen is I've had a winning record since two thousand seven and before that two thousand to do think that a nine seven record will be satisfying result for Browns fans, if they don't make the playoffs or is it really just playoffs or bust sort of satisfy expectations heading into the season? I think it's a disappointment if they don't make the playoffs. I don't I don't think so I have to win the division but if they're not in the playoffs. It's a disappointment given everything that they have done. And you know, it's interesting when you look at this franchise and just be new to the scene. There's this weird combination of like just bridled excitement about what this team could become with a sense of a heavy dose of it, like ominous fatalism. And I think that on paper if you. If this was just like a team vacuum. It wasn't Cleveland, you know, we'd be saying, okay, this is a team that has a chance to make a deep run in the playoffs. But because it's the Browns there's always a caveat that well they look good. And I can go through a bunch of different numbers, that would suggest that they have a chance to be top ten authencity defensively this year without that much difficulty. And yet, I think that because it's Cleveland people are waiting for it to maybe not work out something to happen with ode L Baker at a regress or whatever. But I mean I to me given what they have on this team if they don't make the playoffs a disappointment. I agree I agree with you. I think there's some element of which is Cleveland, I know a couple years ago, I wrote about the Browns and their one or fifteen. And I said, hey, the numbers say this is the most likely team in football to improve and they went and sixteen. And And then then I. I. You know, may babies just maybe it's Cleveland. And maybe I'm just the numbers can account for that. But then the never say they were going to improve last year. It's hard to get worse than on sixteen and they went seventy one so. There. It feels unfair. Right. Like Baker Mayfield has not been a member of the Cleveland Browns for twenty years Oto Beckham has been there for a matter of months. I mean, there's, there's nothing to stick these guys with that should have any sort of stigma. They have been successful players at the college level and at the professional level. So you would figure that, that there's nothing to really define extent. But it does feel like they're going to have to make the playoffs for that to go away. And once they do you would figure if they're competitive team this year if they win the north if they make the playoffs, they'll be in good shape going forward. They have Baker for two more years at a relatively cheap cap number. They have a very competent general manager. It looks like in John Dorsey. The only thing you might look towards might have questions about, I guess would be the.

"But unfortunately that that move is made that the ship is sale. No Beckham is a member of the Cleveland Browns on the flip side of this, there certainly made a bunch of additions and most of them were pretty well known player. Sherwood Beckham's, your Sheldon, Richardson's, your VA Vernon's, is there, someone you think they added this off season whether was in free agency or in the draft that you think might have the opportunity to explode a little bit might have the opportunity to break out more than than Browns fans. Exactly right now, as I think about the roster and who might be oppressive for them this year. Well in order to acquire a deal they had to trade away first-round Ron pig. So they weren't able to draft anybody until the second round they moved up into greedy Williams out of LSU. And that was a guy that I think a lot of people felt like had a chance to go in the first round. I think he's a first round. Talent and he was one of the big storylines at minicamp. And you know, had to pick six in one situation and just made a lot of place was competitive, and I think they feel like within zone at one side in greedy on the other for that, for the next few years, they have a chance to have a formidable cornerback duo, which I think would really complement their defense align. Obviously very well. So I think really in the way that Denzel emerged for them early on last year. I think has the chance to do the same thing. And you know he's not a first round draft pick, but I think he has a chance to make that kind of impact for this team. I mean, you think about Cornerbacks and the NFL usually they do struggle as rookies even even your role Rivas guys who ended up being phenomenal players. They're pretty bad. Usually as rookies you look at Denzel award. He was excellent as a rookie cornerback. So you would hope that really Williams can deliver that, that same sort of impact, and then suddenly, you have to really impressive cornerback on the division where. You have wide receiver. So we're going to move around. You have your AJ grants. You have your Tyler Boyd Cincinnati. You have of course, Jewish Schuster nine Antonio Brown anymore, but juju over in Pittsburgh, who's going to be a player who can move around and sort of challenge you on both sides of the fields. I you know, you need to Cornerbacks went in the NFL at this point. And this was a team that they were getting by at the other corner facts about last year without Denzel award. But I think certainly the upside there and that's secondary is so much higher than it was even when year ago. It gives them more versatility to so they can they can play TJ Carey in nickel spot. They can play three corners feel confident and playing three corners more. So just having a guy like greedy at the other spot. I think will allow the overall unit to be better not just that particular one as well, urgent. Let's talk more about the Browns off season and their expectations for twenty nineteen in a moment. But first guys, finding a new job is a lot of work. And what if you had your own personal cruder to help.

"Third in Tennessee. Jacksonville was a division winner as recently as Yuriko almost a Super Bowl team out of the AFC. So the Texans finished anywhere from first to fourth, honestly, n. Any of those positions wouldn't shock me. And I think let me ask you this, if they do struggle, if they do finish third or fourth nece division, if they don't make the postseason new think they will be at least from the fans side of things there will be sort of a inquest towards moving on from Bill O'Brien and sort of blaming him for the issues with this ball team at don't have hired, Jim. Like, I don't know how many decisions he can actually make now in terms of who we can add the rest or just because where we are in the year. But if he's had what seven months of being in charge of personnel, and they don't win encountered near is now shown that maybe contracts don't really mattered him and you just want to win. I'm not saying that they will fire him to stay have a bad year, but certainly the fans that Houston will be calling for him. I think it's absolutely fair and the other issue that still has to be sort of decided this off season. That is the contracts that associating cloudy who. Franchise. I think that makes sense, given that they were not close to a long term deal someone you don't want to leave by any means. But there's been very little movement. It seems like in his contract negotiations this deal that I figured it'd be very tough to negotiate heading into this offseason and really has not looked any different over the course of last few months. Do you think they are any closer to a deal than they were two or three months ago and sort of what's the most likely outcome of the Geneva inclining situation, both in the short term for Houston in nine thousand nineteen and then in the long term. In fact, that they didn't regain Dreamin last year before the season, kind of tells me, how far apart decides her. I mean typically, that's when they extend guys, that's when you hook and got his big contract. Now, of course, Hopkinson very healthy and very consistent Connie hits of injury history beginning career. But he's missed his lung game in the past two seasons. So he's proven himself. He's proven how good he can be in the fact that they weren't ready to pay him, then tells me that key, perhaps wants more money than they're willing to give him now I'm sure that is for almost any contract negotiation. But, you know, he's probably looked at the number. That's who he'll MAC daughter earned that he wants that. Now, I don't believe he's the caliber, he's shown that purview those players, but they look at the money for, you know the year he was drafted in the position he plays. And then that's the number out there right now. If the Texans don't wanna play that I just I don't see this getting done certainly before the. July his kids up on everybody. Took this. You're on the franchise. I think a hold out for training camp. I don't think he'll miss regular season games and more than a million dollars a game. I think he'll be out there, especially if he wants to contract, and they'll have to cap space to franchise them again. Now he doesn't want to be here because he's frustrated about that. You know, maybe you try and trade them. I think they wanna the field more than they'd be willing. They want anyone for him. So I don't know. I, I just up this point signed it hard to believe that he'll sign a long term deal in Houston based on the negotiations offense afar. Absolutely. I mean, they think about even even beyond that sort of top tier of Cleal MAC and von Miller. Look at Trey flowers, a guy who know very underrated player with the patriots, someone who was very valuable in the playoffs..

"But there's a reason that everyone else has general manager now, if because here goes your guy, and you believe that you can get him after the season. And there's no point in hiring temporary Jenner voter. Can't do anything really until tan cuff in the writings on the wall that they would then if because hero became available. They would then try and hire him in fire this temporary higher. So right now, looks like going garden to be in charge of personnel. Jack Easterby who came over from New England so season he charged football operations Chris Olsen was doing contracts, which are does now. And then, and that's an error all our McNair. But to me, what's interesting does that the day, the. The first press conference we had after dragging was fired. We talked to build bone, and he said, someone asked him about, like, do you feel like you're going to get more time out of the situation, basically? And he said, I don't even think about power, but you look at this Bill O'Brien is in charge of all of the personnel. I mean essentially use the general manager right? I mean in all practical matters, it seems like he would be the general manager in that situation. And I, I will just say, I find it hard to believe that Bill O'Brien has not thought about power when it comes to the football operations of an NFL team, let alone this very particular NFL team. I mean, do you think. It seems like there has been some criticism levied towards Brian that he may be difficult to work with. Do you think that's fair, given what's happened over the past few years in Houston, or is he just someone who you know, maybe demands a lot out of the people he works with? I probably, you know, everyone looks differently with other people now someone asks them about that. And he said, I mean depends who you ask right? Like I try and be, you know, to work with but I know on demanding sensually, and he said that when thing he feels like he needs to work on his communication. So if you read between the lines there, maybe you know, he feigned didn't have a great relationship didn't communicate well towards the end. Maybe that's reason why. They felt like each other were difficult to work with. But yeah, I like you don't believe that he has never thought power and thinking about the only other team in the league, I believe right now that has the head coach of the general federal managers came person. They'll check in New England. And certainly it seems like Bill. Bell track is someone who over the years is sort of earned that, right? Right. Like, like you can't really argue with Bill Bill check success, but Bill O'Brien. They've been successful franchise, while he's been there, generally, but not necessarily the best with personnel and not necessarily a team that has been quite as successful as the patriots have been burnt, Sarah. Let's talk about the rest of the Texans off season, the and clowney contract situation in a moment, but first guys, they say a great offense starts with a great defense, and that's especially.

"I really enjoy Jake Trotter from ESPN breaking down your Notre Dame. Penn State love and how that's not okay. Not really I thought you were going to stay anywheres Notre Dame and Ohio State year.

You kind of need to you kind of need to pick a team. I mean, I don't feel a lot of people down here with you know, oh, you and taxes apparel gear on. So I would say your producer needs to. I mean, you're going to have to pick a fight I pull for the thunder and Golden Gate. I can tell you that. I really added a lot of that conversation or do. Jake Trotter rendered a verdict Brian Hickey on whether you can root for Penn State. Dame cell. By all means have added, buddy. Okay. So. Object. So just a little bit. The Cowboys host Italians in this week's edition of Monday night football. Both teams come into the game with three and four records for the Cowboys have been different at home winning all three of their previous games at Gerry world. Awesome marks Amari, Mark Cooper's debut at the team as yes. Twenty two catches for two hundred ninety yards and a touchdown. So far this season so buyers how the Cowboys coming right? The win tonight against the titans improving to four and four. I'm a big migration fan. That defense for the titans has been pretty awesome of late and yet Marcus mariota has withered up and become a shell of an NFL quarterback. And that offense has been brutal. I'm actually on the titans with the four and a half. But I'm gonna thread the needle, and I'm going to say in terms of the Cowboys getting the wind is still going to be a by. When a close in incredibly ugly football game. Despite stupidity and Lakers eighty to know this year. Los Angeles has actually gone off to somewhat slow start. But one of the free agent signing jail McGhee who's averaging fourteen point fourteen point four points per game, seven and a half rebounds per game and a league best three point four blocks per game McGee strong play especially in defense and in the floor has important out by LeBron James who over the weekend. So that McGee is the defensive player of the year or excuse me a defensive player of the year candidate, saviour cell jail. Muguet's finishing the top five of defensive player of the year voting. Let me give you a little info before question. Just I tend to be a little biased little biased people who take the time to come on camera on the CBS sports HQ show writer's. Block five o'clock eastern. Two o'clock Pacific streaming on device near you and javale McGee was on the show last week. But I'm related to that by. All right now, he has been incredible. I think you noted this. He leads the NBA in blocks per game right now. He's been a studies playing a lot of minutes he gets up and down the floor. So they won't play really fast. And that Luke Walton offense, and he's able to do that. And still have the impact that he's had. Yeah. He's I I think I think that's in the realm of possibility. Also, just add this LeBron makes everyone around him better and brings accolades and opportunities to guys where they'd never be this would probably fit into that category. And the saints forty five thirty five win over the Rams on Sunday wide receiver. Michael Thomas, stole the show with over two hundred yards. Receiving and touchdown forever. Is what he did after scoring that touchdown and got everyone talking after the big catch that put the saints up nine Thomas Rancho goalpost responder pulled on a flip phone and started talking on paying tribute to Joe horn for the same celebration back in two thousand three buyer, sell Michael Thomas foot phone celebration. So let me just say a few things one. Does he had to have hidden to flip phones one agenda right because he wouldn't have known or is going to be. Yes, he did it before to gain. There's no way he would know it'd be a net end zone. So there's went out and found to flip phones. I take some vision. They're not easy define. And I love honoring another player. However your elders. However, I would've been up twenty eight points at the time. Right. So there was still a to possession football game with some time against a dangerous opponent, and they had been in a group in the second half. And yet, it was so awesome. Bye. Bye. Going.

"Is we are set for tonight's match up between number one Alabama and number three LSU update you on some other scores. Number two. Clemson is I think covering is the right word Brad Edwards is that right? It was a big number. But it looks like it's not going to be an issue for the Clemson Tigers. If the six to three Clemson with the lead three minutes to go in the third quarter if Louisville ever wanted to go back to the big east. The big east doesn't play football barely Louisville doesn't either this year? So it'd be a good transition. It'd be smooth. Connect those dots. Realignment would go very special for Louisville. Their question is is going to be percolating about Bobby Pacino. Can you afford to buy them out? Can you afford to not by his benefactor the director there for a long time that brought him in twice is no longer there? So there's no there's no personal reason for any any administrator to keep it number nineteen. Syracuse leads Wake Forest thirty five to seventeen Oklahoma state has the John Baylor. Seventeen to fourteen number twenty Texas have with a ten point edge. John offer twenty four to fourteen Ohio State did score. Touchdown. They have a twenty three to twenty one lead over Nebraska Nebraska facing a third down and five at their own thirty yard line. They do not convert and they will punt the football away so momentum now on the side of the buckeyes Jake Trotter is on our side because it works for ESPN. And he's with us. Now the show. Pennzoil performance line is in Texas tonight for Texas and West Virginia. And it's number thirteen West Virginia number seventeen Texas, Jake. Appreciate joining us. And before we get to that. We got a cyclone fan who is here. He's he's got his cyclone nation T shirt on and right now, they are crushing Kansas. Jake for him in 'em alone. We need to honor him with a question and an answer. What are the chances that Iowa State gets to the big twelve championship game? Jake trotter. Yeah. Any championship game? I was state is one of those fourteen and up to four day have by far. Easiest remaining rolled-over Kansas today taxes in Austin and a couple of weeks. Fans can start booking their tickets to. This could be an unbelievable season. Great. Unbelievable season for Iowa State. He's absolutely right. The the other two games they have are at home against Baylor and home against Kansas state. Those should be easy wins for date. It simply comes down to that game at Austin and look Texas has a crucial game tonight home game against West Virginia. And the next week Texas is at Lubbock it's possible that Texas longhorns could be in a tailspin if they lose both of those games going into that Iowa State game. So I give the cyclones a very good chance to be in the big twelve title three straight wins for Iowa State. They beat Oklahoma state. Beat West Virginia Brock Purdy like him for the Heisman there. Jake Trotter Heisman love here. Maybe next year undefeated. Cyclones look at good, and our cyclone, Fred here's is is having a good time as the cyclones are up twenty seven to three on Kansas. Elsewhere tonight, again, we've got Texas taking out West Virginia and Oklahoma taking on Texas Tech. Let's start with you in Texas Tech. What are the chances that you give Texas Tech tonight? I know that numbers in the double digits. Oklahoma can score will Texas Tech's defense has improved. How do you size that one up? Well attack is always got a chance on on a Saturday night. Blackout game. They beat the number of highly ranked teams over the years. Baker Mayfield set this week. Lubbock Texas on a Saturday night. Things can get weird. I think it's going to be a tougher. Alan Bowman keep up with Tyler Murray detect defense which has been so good under David doing. It is going to have to force turnovers because they're just too. You're gonna give up boys you're going to give up a bunch. You can have them down thirty cannon in Tyler is gonna one for twelve yard or you can force an interception. If you can force a fumble the way. In the Red River showdown in maybe you have a chance at I think, Texas next two games. Whether it tells you or. Texas. I think they have a pretty good chance that we steal one of them which would make tremendous bounceback season for quick Kingsbury after being on the hot seat for a couple of years. Cows gave the ESPN radio the ESPN app built by the Home Depot. Live from Baton Rouge presented by progressive insurance. Michigan state leads Maryland twenty four to three and Ohio State on fourth down and five getting set to it appears punt the football. They have a twenty three to twenty one. On Nebraska, Jake, the Oklahoma defense under a hard reboot at forgiving up forty eight points in a loss to Texas. And now roughly McNeil's that he puts a coordinated on the first two games before they brought her including Texas the Sooners defense gave up about five hundred yards each of those games in the two games since they're giving up about five hundred yards combined. That's against TCU, Kansas state. So that juggernauts, but what you've seen of the Oklahoma defense since they made the change in coordinator, how much hope can Sooners fans have that they have improved to a great level on that side of the ball. I'm not reading too much into it. Andrews there in total disarray right now in Kansas state. No passing game. So anyway. I. In Morton down in late November. Obviously the top game tonight. It got. Next week. And in bedlam, I'm gonna wait. Well, a couple of games in stretches before it and come back and give up six hundred fifty yards the third week. So we'll we'll see I think it's gonna be. It's gonna be hard for Robin to really make a lot of changes. I think just it's a mentality. That Oklahoma is going have to play with different from from before where they're tackling and space. Not giving up. Game when they're. Get the quarterback on the go ahead and Sacramento assembly dramatically. Can be able to do and has been able to do this point the heater is going to have to play better with the guys that they have and they've shut down two offenses. But I would argue without you. I mean, you're talking about three or four worst offenses in the big twelve. Yeah. And jake. It's interesting that I never thought we get to the point where we're talking about Texas Tech in questioning whether they would be able to score a lot at home on Oklahoma, not because Oklahoma's defense is a lot better. But because Texas tax offense is not what we're used to seeing it. And I maybe that's lost by a lot of people who aren't watching closely, but they've had a lot of turnover at quarterback for various reasons this year in Lubbock, and they're right now ranked forty fifth an offense efficiency. So it's not the explosive offense that we saw two years ago that famous game with Pat Mahomes against Baker Mayfield. I don't know that Oklahoma has to score fifty to be able to win this game. I agree with you. Brad. That they're an explosive offense. They're not nickel and dime. Their way down the field. Grant or de'andre, Andre Washington dot. Go eighty on any given play their little bit limited in their playing especially at at at the receiving position. So they have to. That's that's hard to score a bunch of doing like you said of Oklahoma plays it offense game. It's it'd be really difficult. The red raiders to have any kids. They're gonna have to. Three turnovers. Jake lasting. Give us a quick word here on Texas in West Virginia, Texas coming up that loss to Oklahoma state and West Virginia the best team they faced Iowa State punch them right in the mouth is politics at this morning on game day, how do you size it up? Well. It was a difficult for West Virginia. Unlike pack day replying to play the game will Greer and David filled and Gary Jenny the net. That's maybe the best thing is eight days away, your big packing place. Because. Rundown umbrella, and it just really gave West Virginia a lot of problems. We saw the Texas last week. It still water. They're susceptible to give it up big plays in the passing game on the other side of the ball. You know, what really wants to deal control the game and the quarterback run game. Etlinger still nursing sore. Injured sprang to his throwing shoulder. So I don't know how much they're can be able to run. So I think watch. Jake charter of the shell Pennzoil performance line. Thank you, Jake. Enjoy the game tonight. Up next number ten Ohio State with a twenty three twenty one lead on Nebraska, fourth and one for the huskers that appear to be going forward at their own fourteen yard line. Brad Edwards pumping his fist. We'll give you the result. Beck's college game day filled by the Home Depot, you're all nuts..

"You mentioned the Jake Sam Elliott just scored a touchdown touchdown run. So Texas with three separate seventy five yard touchdown drives in this game. Playing terrific there point away from going up thirty one to fourteen we'll let you get back out there to finish covering the game. And doing what you're actually paid to do. Thank you, Jack. Ticker. Let's Jake Trotter here on college game be on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. It's thirty one to seventeen Texas. Trevor Matt this is attention to detail by Jake Trotter. He was where he could not see what was happening. You heard the crowd roared. He didn't know if it was an offense touchdown by Texas or a pick six by Oklahoma. But he could tell by the sound of the crowd. That was the Texas fans who were cheering Jake Trotter rocks. Either that or it was a lucky guess from the sounds of it. There was some cheering. I think there was a score. And they're absolutely was. But there are around the ten yard line the quarterback. Sam eager was in the shotgun. He caught the snap. The running back went to the point of attack on the right side had a decent block at the point of attack on the contain man, not crushing. But it didn't need to be an elegant basically just dashed into the end zone on a call quarterback went run. Right. And Jake talked about how the Oklahoma defense was being blocked into oblivion and I was looking at it was a tight end over there. There was a receiver than the running back went over there. And every single one of them got an effective block. Not a single sooner defender was able to shed a block and challenge. Etlinger to any meaningful degree on that touchdown run at Jacob's right at the two immediate reactions to this. If Texas hold on Wednesday's game will be number one, Oklahoma's defense, still stinks. They've they've got to make some changes and number two will be the big twelve is in huge trouble in the playoff race. Now. I thought it was interesting. He pointed out that Texas if you look at their remaining schedule, they got a shot to finish at twelve and one now at this point, you're not thinking that would be enough to get in. But we haven't seen any real upsets yet. And you figure at some point. They're going to happen Texas might not be out of this yet. It's hard to forecast teams running the table, especially in the big twelve from week six on because Texas challenging game still in front West Virginia. Oklahoma state Oklahoma will obviously be in the rear view mirror. But here's the question. If Texas wins this game are they without a doubt the favorite in the conference. Are you still mentioning them with the same breath as West Virginia? Here's what their defense will be other than TCU really the best defense in the conference, and maybe eclipsing TCU's defense and the offense will have gotten over. What has been there? Bugaboo the last couple of years, and that is inopportune turnovers late in games that cost them opportunities for victories. That's what happened against Maryland. Their last three drives all ended in a Texas turnover. And now if this Texas team is able to continue this kind of offense of discipline and play without turning the ball over like that. Then everything else can come together you add that to the defense and it puts Texas in a terrific position to be the most balanced team in the conference. And what do what does the committee? What have they said in the past about even Oklahoma when they made the playoffs? You heard Kirby hocutt volunteered. The information of we've got questions about the defense. And that was while they were rolling during this. We have questions about their defense. If Texas somehow can have the look defensively, which they seem to have that that. Goes a long way in getting you consideration. If you're a one loss conference champion long way to go. But defense has been the questions they can answer that question in the big twelve they'll have a leg up and this comes down to. Let's just say the Texas wins out. Washington wins out. You've got a one loss Texas conference champion one loss. Washington conference champion, then it would be an interesting debate. Between those two teams the big wild card is Notre Dame. And if Texas is able to hold this victory. The biggest winner is Notre Dame because an Oklahoma undefeated big twelve champion. I think has advantages over an undefeated Notre Dame. And I think that that if Texas is able to beat Oklahoma the Longhorn nation will be the happiest group of fans about it second happiest Irish nation. Yeah. No. Of course, the the the strange thing with the big twelve is that because they don't have divisions. It's the top two teams in the conference championship game, Texas could very well have to turn around and beat Oklahoma. The second time in order to finish twelve and one. Now, if they were able to do that that's to really good wins. And if so you start putting Texas up against other one loss teams that are conference champs two wins over Oklahoma, not saying, no one would be able to do it. But they're going to be a lot of teams out there. That would have two wins that good again. It's you you might say, hey, it's early you only played twelve they'll be about halfway through and their next games would be against Baylor at Oklahoma state home against West Virginia at Texas Tech. That's the stretch there where you'd really have to be concerned. But right now, Texas their defense is really shutting down Kyla Murray and this offense it's thirty one to seventeen Texas with the lead a third down four upcoming four Oklahoma in the third will update you on that pit with a twenty two seventeen lead on Syracuse, Missouri. The rain is pouring down in Columbia, South Carolina, Missouri with a twenty three to fourteen lead on South Carolina. And one yard touchdown run. For Michigan gives the number. Fifteen wolverines a ten to seven lead on Maryland. You talk about Columbia, South Carolina. It is eleven minutes to go in the third quarter. That means it's after halftime, right? That means if you go into the Lockwood halftime came back out. That is correct. Why doesn't will muschamp have a hat on the South Carolina head coach he is standing there in the rain with his hair soaking wet with a headset on and he's got no cap on. I mean, you could be tough. All right. I get it. But why not wear a hat? He squinting his eyes because he these windshield. Wipers for eyeballs, you never know it might have just started to rain right there. Do you think maybe they forgot to bring the hats could be a potential Billy sends a.

"Texas. You mentioned the Jay Sam Elliott just scored a touchdown touchdown run. So Texas with three separate seventy five yard touchdown drives in this game. Eleanor's playing terrific their point away from going up thirty one to fourteen we'll let you get back out there to finish covering the game. And doing what you're actually paid to do. Thank you. Jake Jake Trotter here on college game day on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. It's thirty one to seventeen Texas. Trevor Matt this is attention to detail by Jake Trotter. He was where he could not see what was happening. You heard the crowd roared. He didn't know if it was an offensive touchdown by Texas or a pick six by Oklahoma. But he could tell by the sound of the crowd that it was the Texas fans who were cheering Jake Trotter rocks either that or it was a lucky guess from the sounds of it. There was some cheering. I think there was a score. And they're absolutely was. But there were rather ten yard line the quarterback. Sam etlinger was in the shotgun. He caught the snap the running back to the point of attack on the right side had a decent block at the point of attack on the containment, not crushing. But it didn't need to be an elegant basically just dashed into the end zone on a call quarterback went run. Right. And Jake talked about how the Oklahoma defense was being blocked into oblivion and I was looking at it was a tight end over there. It was a receiver than the running back went over there. And every single one of them got an effective block. Not a single sooner defender was able to shed a block and challenge. Etlinger? Demi meaningful degree on that touchdown run at Jacob's right at the two immediate reactions to this. If Texas hold on Wednesday's game will be number one, Oklahoma's defense, still stinks. They've they've got to make some changes and number two will be the big twelve is in huge trouble in the playoff race. Now. I thought it was interesting. He pointed out that Texas if you look at their remaining schedule, they got a shot to finish at twelve and one now at this point, you're not thinking that would be enough to get in. But we haven't seen any real upsets yet and. You figure at some point. They're going to happen Texas might not be out of this yet. It's hard to forecast teams running the table, especially in the big twelve from week six on because Texas challenging game still in front West Virginia. Oklahoma state. Oklahoma will obviously be in the rear view mirror. But here's the question. If Texas wins this game are they without a doubt the favorite in the conference. Are you still mentioning them in the same breath as West Virginia? And here's what their defense will be other than TCU really the best defense in the conference of maybe eclipsing TCU's defense and the offense will have gotten over. What has been there bugaboo the last couple of years, and that is in opportune turnovers late in games that cost them opportunities for victories. That's what happened against Maryland. Their last three drives all ended in Texas turnover. And now if this Texas team is able to continue this kind of offense of discipline and play without turning the ball over like that. Then everything else can come together you add that to the defense and it puts Texas in a terrific position to be the most balanced team in the conference. And what do what does the committee? What have they said in the past about even Oklahoma when they made the playoffs? You heard Kirby hocutt volunteered. The information of we've got questions about their defense. And that was while they were rolling during this. We have questions about their defense. If Texas somehow can have the look defensively, which they seem to have that that goes. Goes a long way in getting you consideration. If you're one loss conference champion long way to go. But defense has been the question they can answer that question in the big twelve they'll have a leg up and this comes down to. Let's just say the Texas wins out. Washington wins out. You've got a one loss Texas conference champion one loss. Washington conference champion, then it would be an interesting debate. Between those two teams the big wild card is Notre Dame. And if Texas is able to hold this victory. The biggest winner is Notre Dame because an Oklahoma undefeated big twelve champion. I think has advantages over an undefeated Notre Dame. And I think that that if Texas is able to beat Oklahoma the Longhorn nation will be the happiest group of fans about it second happiest Irish nation. Yeah. No. Of course, the the strange thing with the big twelve is that because they don't have divisions. It's the top two teams in the conference that make the championship game Texas could very well have to turn around and beat Oklahoma second time in order to finish twelve and one. Now, if they were able to do that that's to really good wins. And so you start putting Texas up against other one loss teams that are conference champs two wins over Oklahoma, not saying, no one would be able to do it. But there are going to be a lot of teams out there. That would have two wins that good again. It's you might say, hey, it's early you only played twelve they'll be about halfway through and their next games would be against Baylor at Oklahoma state home against West Virginia at Texas Tech. I mean that that's the stretch there where you'd really have to be. Concerned. But right now, Texas their defense is really shutting down Kyla Murray and this offense it's thirty one to seventeen Texas with the lead a third down and four upcoming four Oklahoma in the third wall update you on that pit with a twenty two seventeen lead on Syracuse, Missouri. The rain is pouring down in Columbia, South Carolina, Missouri with a twenty three to fourteen lead on South Carolina and one yard touchdown run. For Michigan gives the number fifteen wolverines a ten to seven lead on Maryland. You're talking about Columbia, South Carolina is eleven minutes to go in the third quarter. That means it's after halftime, right? That means they go into the Lockwood. Halftime came back out. That is correct. Why doesn't will muschamp have a hat on the South Carolina. Head coach is standing there in the rain with his hair's soaking wet with a headset on and he's got no cap on. I mean, you could be tough. All right. I get it. But why not wear a hat? He's squinting his eyes because he needs. Windshield wipers for his eyeballs, you'd never know. It might have just started to rain right there. Do you think maybe they forgot to bring the hats could be a potential?.
