DALLAS (AP) - Mack Brown can finally say he's done something in
the Texas-Oklahoma game that Bob Stoops hasn't - pulled off an
upset. And it's a big one.
Brown's Longhorns grabbed some second-half momentum by foiling a
fake punt Saturday, then Colt McCoy and the defense built on it,
carrying No. 5 Texas to a 45-35 victory over No. 1 Oklahoma.
The Longhorns outscored the Sooners 25-7 after stopping the
trickery, and their half of the record crowd of 92,182 fans loved
every bit of it. At game's end, the folks in burnt orange enjoyed
the biggest postgame celebration in the 103-game history of this
Red River Rivalry.
With the win, Texas (6-0, 2-0 Big 12) grabs the inside track on
both the conference and national championship races.
