Texas came out in the second half intent on changing the tempo, utilizing a hurry-up offense that kept the Sooners flummoxed.
The drive paved the way for Texas' most consistent offensive possession of the game as they moved the ball 42 yards. The drive was capped by a 42-yard field goal by Hunter Lawrence that pulled the Longhorns into a 6-6 tie.
Colt McCoy had some rhythm on the drive as the Longhorns marched for two first downs.
Vondrell McGee entered the game for the first time on that drive. His presence may help Texas to run better inside against the swarming Oklahoma offense.
