Texas Overwhelms Oklahoma, 36-20, in the Red River Rivalry

Chris Whaley picks off Blake Bell and scores a Fat Guy Touchdown against him. Everyone knows that counts for double points.

Oklahoma has defeated Texas for the past three years. In the last two years alone, Oklahoma beat Texas by a combined 80 points. A lot of us were expecting a similar story to unfold in Dallas in this year's contest.

That did not happen. Texas dominated the game from the start. Minus a few errors by Texas, often requited by Oklahoma, it was always in command of this contest. After turning Oklahoma away on a 4th down play in Texas' red zone, the Longhorns were able to end the game and preserve a 16-point margin of victory.

Don't look now, but Texas is now 3-0 in conference play and, well, "controls its own destiny" in the Big XII. It still has to play at Baylor to end the regular season, though.
