With three games left in the regular season, No. 24 Texas looks to hold on to its spot near the top of the Big 12.

That goal starts Saturday, when the Longhorns (21-7, 10-5 Big 12) travel north to Norman, Okla., for an afternoon matchup with rival Oklahoma (20-8, 9-6
Big 12).

Texas sits in third place in the league, a game ahead of the Sooners, who are coming off an 8-point loss to Kansas. The Longhorns, on the other hand, ended a two-game skid this week, when they knocked off Baylor in a narrow victory Wednesday night.  

Sophomore guard Javan Felix, who made seven 3-pointers in Wednesday’s win, looks to lead Texas as it tries to regain its strength on the road. The Longhorns have lost their last three away games.

The last time Texas and Oklahoma met was in January for the Longhorns’ first conference game of the season. The Sooners won the matchup with an 88-85 victory.
