OCT 10: OKLAHOMA
Cotton Bowl, Dallas
Texas probably feels it owes the Sooners — the Longhorns fell into an early 17-3 hole last year thanks to a pick-six and a blown kickoff coverage. The Sooners escaped 31-26 despite being outgained in total offense 482-232. Lake Travis product Baker Mayfield has unseated incumbent Trevor Knight to be named starting quarter. Texas’ seniors are 1-2 against OU.
All-time: Texas, 60-44-5; Last time: Oklahoma, 31-26 (2014)
