DALLAS -- Freshman wide receiver Marquis Goodwin is coming up with his biggest performance in the second half.
Goodwin snagged three receptions on a scoring drive, capped by a 14-yard TD grab from Colt McCoy to give the Longhorns their first lead of the game.
The Longhorns offensive line appears to be taking control. It was noticeable that McCoy had much more time for his passes on the last drive. He also was able to exploit the Sooners' weak middle of the secondary.
McCoy was clutch with three third-down conversions, including a key pass interference call on Oklahoma redshirt freshman Joseph Ibiloye that kept the drive alive.
The Longhorns appear to have grabbed momentum in the last several minutes. Let's see how the Sooners respond.
