 #3 Rank Longhorns defeated rival (#20)Oklahoma Sooners. A hard fought game, no thanks to the offense.

CB Aaron Williams picked off QB Sam Bradford. Texas D also put a stop to Sooners backup QB Landry Jones. Sending Texas to a 16-13 win.

Both teams were terrible offensively with eight combined turnovers. The win came down to all of Oklahoma's fumbles.

Bradford sprained his throwing arm in the opener against Baylor. He came back but was of course sidelined by Aaron Williams in the second quarter.

This game didn't do much to boost Colt McCoy's chance to win the Heisman this year. This was his 3rd time beating the Sooners in four years.

Each team had only one TD. For Texas, WR Marquise Goodwin scored in the 3rd quarter.

The sooners battled back with a 35-yd TD from Ryan Broyles. The Longhorns won by a 32-yard field goal  Hunter Lawrence  in the fourth quarter.

Chris Brown of the Sooners lead the team with 23 yds on 12 carries.

This may have been a different story if Sam Bradford was not taken down. McCoy was not at his best but it was just enough to win. A sloppy performance on both sides but Texas came out with the victory.
