Previewing Texas - A Look Back At The Last Time They Played The Sooners

New, 5 comments

In last year's Red River Shootout the Sooners we're out manned offensively but put up a defensive masterpiece that had Oklahoma in position to win against a Texas team that ended up playing for the BCS championship.

Oklahoma held the Longhorns to just 16 total points and just 269 yards of total offense. Jeremy Beal registered 12 total tackles and the defense as a whole threw down the Longhorns nine times for loss, including four sacks of Colt McCoy. Linebacker Keenan Clayton picked off McCoy twice and corner Brian Jackson nabbed one.

The end result was a 16-13 Longhorn win but the effort wasn't lacking nor was the opportunity.

It was also the official start to the Landry Jones era. Jones completed 24-of-43 passes for 250 yards with a touchdown and unfortunately two picks.
