In 2013, Texas got off to a great start, including a pick-six in the first quarter, which catapulted it to the stunning upset over OU. So far, the Longhorns are following the same playbook, turning a Sooner fumble into a touchdown. Texas 14, Oklahoma 0 in the first quarter.


Texas adds another TD early

Tyrone Swoopes ran 3 yards for a touchdown to build a 14-0 lead over No. 10 Oklahoma in the first quarter.


Johnson with strong run to put Texas up

Marcus Johnson worked a 24-yard run down the sideline as Texas took the 7-0 lead over No. 10 Oklahoma on ABC. It's just the second game this season in which the Longhorns held a first-quarter lead

Charlie Strong doesn't need to beat Oklahoma today to solidify his tenure at Texas. But he can't afford to get run out of the Cotton Bowl, either. Given the infighting in the locker room, this feels like a fork-in-the-road game for the Longhorns. If they no-show for a second straight week, the season could really spiral. Conversely, if they hang tough, even if they don't win, that could give Strong something to build off of going forward.
