After a scuffle at midfield during warmups, both the Sooners and the Longhorns were issued penalties before the game even started.

 

 

The Sooners got on the board first, capping a 10-play, 66-yard drive to open the game with a 1-yard touchdown pass from Jalen Hurts to CeeDee Lamb.

 

 

The Longhorns forced a fumble from Jalen Hurts but were unable to capitalize. First quarter ended with Texas trailing 7-0.

 

 

Hurts turned the ball over again in the second quarter, this time an interception.

 

 

Texas couldn’t capitalize on either turnover as the Sooners snuck in a field goal with less than two minutes before halftime.

 

 

After the field goal, Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger led the Longhorns on an 8-play, 48-yard drive with 1:48 left in the half to get Texas close enough for Cameron Dicker to make a 49-yard field goal as time expired. Texas more than doubled it’s offensive output on that drive to make it a 10-3 game.

 

 

A 57-yard run by Texas running back Roschon Johnson setup the Longhorns first touchdown, which Johnson took in himself the next play on a 4-yard run. The Longhorns tied the game at 10 with 8:48 left in the third quarter.

 

 

Texas defensive lineman Malcolm Roach was ejected for targeting on the Sooners’ ensuing drive.

 

 

The Sooners found the end zone the next play, with Hurts hitting Lamb again for a score, this time a 51-yard flea flicker to make it 17-10 with 7:45 left in the third quarter.

 

 

Oklahoma extended the lead 20-10 after a 34-yard field goal.

 

 

Ehlinger finds the end zone just before the fourth quarter to make it a 3-point game.

 

 

But the Sooners answered right back as Hurts found Lamb for a third touchdown to make it a 27-17 game in the fourth quarter.

 

 

Texas responded with a 12-play drive that ended on a 32-yard field goal by Dicker, making it a 27-17 game.

 

 

Oklahoma followed that with a touchdown drive, with Hurts running it in for the score.

 

 

The Longhorns got right back in it when a 10-play drive ended on a Ehlinger touchdown, his second of the day, to make it a 34-27.

 

 

It wasn’t enough though as the Sooners were able to run out the clock and win the game, 34-27.
