A look at how it all happened Saturday:
Texas 10, Oklahoma 7. This is the fifth time in six games that Texas has opened on defense. Oklahoma became the fourth of those five teams to score on its opening drive. The Longhorns countered with their passing game — Sam Ehlinger had passes of 36 and 29 yards on UT’s first drive, which ended with Lil’Jordan Humphrey’s first career touchdown pass. The junior receiver has thrown five passes the past two years and has now scored in three straight games. Cameron Dicker’s 44-yard field goal was his third from at least 40 yards this season.
Oklahoma: Marquise Brown 4-yard pass from Kyler Murray (Austin Siebert kick, 12:20)
Texas: Collin Johnson 2-yard pass from Lil’Jordan Humphrey (Cameron Dicker kick, 10:14)
Texas: Dicker 44-yard field goal, 5:58
Halftime: Texas 24, Oklahoma 17. The Sooners scored on the first play of the quarter and on the second-to-last play of the quarter. In between were a pair of Ehlinger touchdowns — a 10-yard pass and his team-leading fourth scoring run of the season. Oklahoma trailed 24-10 but converted two fourth downs to score in the final minute; it was Texas’ first halftime lead over OU since 2015.
Oklahoma: Seibert 32-yard field goal, 14:56
Texas: Tre Watson 28-yard pass from Ehlinger (Dicker kick, 10:18)
Texas: Ehlinger 9-yard run (Dicker kick, 5:12)
Oklahoma: CeeDee Lamb 5-yard pass from Murray (Siebert kick, :28)
Texas 45, Oklahoma 24: More of the same. Texas, which was 10-1 in the Tom Herman era when leading at halftime, produced three touchdowns on a pair of Ehlinger runs and a pass to Humphrey and appeared to have put the game away heading into the final quarter. That, of course, changed pretty quickly. But that 10-1 mark is now 11-1.
Texas: Ehlinger 5-yard run (Dicker kick, 10:26)
Oklahoma: Brown 77-yard pass from Murray (Siebert kick, 9:15)
Texas: Ehlinger 2-yard run (Dicker kick, 6:21)
Texas: Humphrey 15-yard pass from Ehlinger (Dicker kick, :56)
Final: Texas 48, Oklahoma 45. Texas, up by three touchdowns, seemed content to work the clock. That led to a couple of punts, and the Sooners took advantage. Murray’s big 67-yard touchdown run made it a one-score game with 5 minutes left, and then the Sooners tied it up with less than 3 minutes left. But the Longhorns closed the right way, getting a couple of first downs on a pass interference call, an Andrew Beck catch and an Ehlinger run, and Dicker won it at the end.
Oklahoma: Lee Morris 19-yard pass from Murray (Siebert kick, 8:28)
Oklahoma: Murray 67-yard run (Siebert kick, 5:11)
Oklahoma: Trey Sermon 7-yard run (Siebert kick, 2:38)
