Shortly after the Longhorns coughed up the football, Texas defensive tackle Chris Whaley picked off Oklahoma quarterback Blake Bell and returned it 31 yards for the touchdown.

The 295-pound lineman managed to get to the outside before he carried Bell for the last six yards into the end zone.

The interception gave Texas a 10-3 lead for its first lead over Oklahoma since 2009, according to Mike Finger of the Houston Chronicle.

Whaley's incredible effort changed the momentum in this game as the Longhorns look to upset the Sooners.
