Texas 36, Oklahoma 20—Final
The Longhorns pull off the upset behind two 100-yard rushers and the defense's best game of the season.
How the Golden Hat was won.
Malcom Brown and Jackson Jeffcoat combine to sack Blake Bell on 4th-and-13. That should just about seal it for the Longhorns...unless a defensive lineman decides to go off again in these final five minutes.
Texas linebacker Dalton Santos is down on the field with what appears to be an arm injury. He was able to walk to the sideline, and the 'Horns really need him back on the field.
If the Sooners are going to come back, they'll want those two timeouts back.
Oklahoma 20, Texas 36, 10:07 Fourth Quarter
Geneo Grissom returns Case McCoy's first interception of the game for a touchdown. That's the second defensive lineman to score in this game.
Quandre Diggs gets shot out of a cannon for a third-down sack of Blake Bell. That's his second quarterback takedown in the last two games.
Still think Mike Davis should have been suspended for what he did last week, but this was a nice play.
Texas 36, Oklahoma 13—0:21, Third Quarter
Mike Davis' first catch of the game goes 38 yards for a touchdown. Case McCoy threw a great ball right over the senior receiver's shoulder for the score.
Senior Aaron Colvin is down for the Sooners. He walked off the field under his own power, but OU can't afford to lose him. He has a claim as the best defensive back in the Big 12.
Daje Johnson's punt return was Texas' first for a touchdown since 2002.
Texas 29, Oklahoma 13, 7:22 Third Quarter
Daje Johnson returns a punt 85 yards for a touchdown, Texas' first since fire was discovered. The extra point was blocked to keep the 'Horns from breaking into the 30s.
Texas safety Adrian Phillips has been helped off the field. Usually a scapegoat, the senior has played well today both in coverage and against the run. Josh Turner will take his place on the back end.
Eric Striker, who blew up McCoy in the first half, was everywhere on Texas' first drive. Longhorns punt and the Sooners will get decent field position.
Oklahoma 13, Texas 23—11:08, Third Quarter
The Sooners take the opening deep into Texas territory, but are forced to settle for a Michael Hunnicut field goal. Blake Bell's first carry of the game goes for four yards as he comes up short on third down.
Key Stats from the First Half
5.3: The 'Horns are controlling the clock thanks to a running game that is averaging 5.3 yards/carry. Johnathan Gray leads the way with 83 yards on 15 totes, and Malcolm Brown is piling up 64 of his own.
0: Blake Bell has yet to carry the ball against a Texas team that has been manhandled by dual-threat quarterbacks all season. Contained in the pocket, the big junior has only 35 passing yards and an interception that was returned for a touchdown.
97: Roy Finch has 97 kick return yards, with 73 of them coming in the second quarter to set up the Sooners' first touchdown.
2: Texas quarterback Case McCoy has missed two wide-open receivers for deep touchdowns. If either one of those plays connects, this game is headed toward an ugly blowout.
