In the 117th meeting between the two rival schools, the Oklahoma Sooners defeated the Texas Longhorns in a game full of twists and turns.
Texas’ Casey Thompson, Bijan Robinson, and Xavier Worthy put on a display, while the Oklahoma Sooners’ defence struggled in the first half before calming down and earning stops in the second.
After committing some costly turnovers, the Sooners benched Spencer Rattler in favour of Caleb Williams, and the latter helped the team outscore Texas 38-13 in the second half.
Both Kennedy Brooks and Marvin Mims were outstanding, with Brooks rushing for almost 200 yards and Mims tormenting the Longhorns for several big gains of his own.

Top Reactions On Social Media To Our 55–48 Victory Over Texas
Our 55–48 victory over Texas elicited some of the best social media reactions ever. Kennedy Brooks ran 33 yards for the game-winning touchdown.
Brooks took a direct snap with 10 seconds remaining to set up a game-winning field goal attempt by Gabe Brkic.
He sidestepped the tacklers and eventually scored the game-winning touchdown. Spencer Rattler’s pass to Drake Stoops for the two-point convert sealed the deal.
As the clock ticked down to the last 7 minutes 25 seconds, the Sooners were trailing by four points, 41-39. The quarterback rolled to his right and hit Stoops with a dart for a touchdown-tying pass.
It was such a crucial play that Rattler was given a place on the second-quarter bench. From then on, that was the only shot he would ever fire.
