No guarantee it is the oil filter, and for something like that to happen, I don't think you would be driving it home. You never know tho, also consider the oil pressure sending unit. So I would bring tools, an oil pressure sending unit, and a oil filter plus 5 quarts of oil. There is a pressure relief valve there when you take the oil filter off that sometimes gets stuck.
