The No. 3 Texas Longhorns (12-0) and The No. 22 Nebraska Cornhuskers (9-3) travel to Arlington, TX to compete in the Big 12 Championship Game. Longhorns quarterback, and Heisman Trophy candidate, Colt McCoy is looking to lead his team to The BCS title game with a win over Nebraska on Saturday. Texas, led by a star quarterback, will try and capture The Big 12 Championship and win the BCS Title as an underdog, just as Vince Young did four years ago. Nebraska is looking to upset Texas and win the North its first Big 12 Championship in more than 5 years. They are going to need to play some good defensive football in order to stop this Longhorns offense. Kick-off for The Big 12 Championship Game is scheduled for 8:00pm ET Saturday Dec 5 at Cowboys Stadium. Betting lines, trends and predictions are listed below for this Texas vs Nebraska match up.

Texas vs Nebraska Betting Predictions:
Final Score – Texas 28 Nebraska 14
Spread – Lay it down on the Texas longhorns to cover the 13.5 point spread. Colt McCoy is going to come out with all he’s got and prove to voters why he deserves the Heisman. Look for Nebraska’s defense to focus on the Longhorns star receiver Jordan Shipley. This will allow for McCoy to effectively use all of his other targets, and pick apart this excellent Nebraska defense. I don’t think even the 11th ranked Nebraska defense will be able to stop the Longhorns powerful offense. Bet on the Texas Longhorns to cover the spread in this Big 12 Championship game (-110).

Over/Under – I like the total to stay under the 46.5 points. These two teams have great defenses, and should keep the total under the number. It’s the Longhorns’ defense, which ranks first in the Big 12 allowing 263.2 yards per game, going up against the Cornhuskers defense, which is ranked 11th in the league in total defense, and first in the league with points per game, giving up an average of just 11.1 points per game. Texas should be able to put up some big points in the first half and get a nice lead, and then control the clock in the second keeping the total just under the number. Bet on the under in this game (-110).
