What Tom Herman said after Texas defeated Oklahoma 48-45 in the Red River Showdown

Posted October 6th, 2018


Things just keep getting better for Texas football in 2018. The Longhorns beat Oklahoma 48-45 on Saturday, with a 40-yard field goal by freshman Cameron Dicker the difference.

Texas has now won five-straight games for the first time since 2013, and three of those victories — USC, TCU and Oklahoma — have come over ranked opponents.

Afterward, coach Tom Herman spoke to the media, including American-Statesman reporters Brian Davis and Danny Davis. Here’s some of what he had to say.

Herman also spoke with play-by-play announcer Craig Way on 104.9 The Horn‘s postgame show. Here are a few highlights from that interview.

On Cameron Dicker’s game-winning kick:

“This kid’s kicked in a lot of big games. Texas high school football is a big deal. Lake Travis High School is a big deal. He’s been in front of tens of thousands of people kicking game-winning kicks before.”

On the play of safety B.J. Foster, who missed the Kansas State game due to a concussion:

“He played great. Got a big sack. For a guy that missed last week because of concussion to fly around the field, he did a great job for us.”

On staying focused on the next opponent after another big win:

“We have to. Baylor is not going to care that we beat Oklahoma. Just like winning ‘ugly’ in Manhattan you don’t get half a ‘W,’ they don’t give you 1-½ for beating Oklahoma.”
