2009 BTBS Projections
|Date||Opponent||Proj. W/L||Margin||Record||Conf. Rec.|
|10/31||at Oklahoma State||W||+7.9||8-0||5-0|
|11/26||at Texas A&M||W||+14.9||12-0||8-0|
Since my projections don't yet take into account my whole issue from the BTBS offensive preview--that they had too much success on Passing Downs to maintain from one year to another, clearly the numbers like UT this year. Only one game is projected within a touchdown, only two within 13 points. Missouri is apparently officially the third-hardest game on UT's schedule, which...honestly, it says a lot about their schedule. No non-conference game is projected to be closer than 32 points. The weakness of the schedule, really, means that if there's another 7-1/11-1 tie and BCS rankings come into play again between UT and OU, UT's probably screwed. Luckily for them, a) they're projected to go 12-0, not 11-1, and b) that tie-breaker has been used once in the Big 12's 13 years--odds are good it won't come into play.
What do you think? 12-0 for Texas? 11-1? More than one loss?
Starting Monday: Colorado Week!
