Electoral College questions

So, I understand that each state has the same number of electors as they do electoral votes. Let's take Texas for my example. They have 42 electoral votes, meaning they have 42 electors. They also do not have any laws against "faithless electors"... so, what happens if the state goes 50/50 on their electoral votes. Who wins the state?
