Today marked the tenth consecutive year that I’ve attended the Red River Rivalry between the Oklahoma Sooners and Texas Longhorns. Besides the fried grilled cheese and Fletcher Corny Dogs, here are some tasty tidbits:
Stoops is now 9-5 against Mack Brown and responsible for three of Oklahoma’s five most lopsided wins over Texas - and that doesn’t include last year’s 55-17 clobbering.
Oklahoma ended up with a 677-289 advantage in total yardage, with 343 yards on the ground. A Texas defense that had high expectations at the start of the season has now given up 1,186 yards rushing in the past five weeks, with back-to-back losses that could knock them out of the Big 12 race.
Also of note:
- The win marks the third consecutive, and ninth out of the previous thirteen, for OU.
- It’s the fourth time under Stoops that the Sooners have scored at least 55 against Texas.
- During Stoops’ tenure, Oklahoma has outscored the Longhorns 462 - 305.
- Surprisingly, this is the ninth consecutive loss by Texas versus AP Top 25 opponents.
One last point, BOOMER SOONER!
