The Week 7 slate of games has been penciled in as must-watch television since the schedule for the 2019 season was released. With six weeks of action in the books, Week 7 looks primed to live up to the hype as a potential proving ground for multiple teams with playoff hopes lying in the balance.

We take a look through the PFF lens at what potentially could decide the outcome of some of Week 7's biggest matchups.

No. 6 Oklahoma vs. No. 11 Texas (12 p.m. ET, FOX)

Jalen Hurts: When kept clean vs. when pressured

Jalen Hurts finds himself as one of the country's leaders in the race toward the Heisman Trophy through the first half of the season, and a big statement game against Texas at the Cotton Bowl certainly will help his candidacy. While Hurts has been sharp through the air and with his legs, one thing that has set him apart is his ability both under pressure and when kept clean from pressure -- even when the opposing defense sends extra rushers on a blitz. Hurts is a top 10-graded quarterback and has thrown for five touchdowns and no interceptions against opponents' blitz attempts this season. When that pressure actually registers, he has the nation's fourth-highest passing grade, completing 18 of 32 passes for 355 yards and four scores with no interceptions and no turnover-worthy passes.
