(Stillwater-AP) -- A week after scoring just six points in a loss to Southern Mississippi, the Oklahoma State Cowboys will face a possibly tougher defense from 13th-ranked Texas.

The Longhorns' defense has given up just three touchdowns in three games.

All three were scored by Stanford in Texas' only loss.

Big and fast is how O-S-U coach Bob Simmons describes the Texas defenders that shut out the high-powered Houston offense last week.

Simmons is most concerned about the Longhorns' defensive tackles.

Casey Hampton and Shaun Rogers were both pre-season All-Americans, though Rogers is questionable for Saturday's game because of a sprained ankle.

Kick off is at 11 a-m.
