After three consecutive losses, this year's Red River Rivalry presents a must-win situation for the Texas Longhorns. Thanks to a more experienced group and an improved offensive attack, 2013 will be the season in which they finally get some revenge on the Sooners.
In last season's 63-21 blowout, Mack Brown's team looked like it did not even belong on the field with the Sooners. The Longhorns were out-classed at the line of scrimmage, and it was made painfully obvious how far away they were from returning to the top of the Big 12.
Not this time, though. Landry Jones and other major contributors from last year's squad have moved on for the Sooners, leaving them vulnerable to the more seasoned Longhorns and the talent that they return to the field in 2013.
Here is why the Longhorns will capitalize and get some major catharsis on October 12.
