Eleven years ago, the No. 3 Texas Longhorns traveled to Stillwater on Halloween and left the No. 14 Oklahoma State Cowboys — and Eeyore there — with no doubt that it would not be a good morning when the sun rose again on north-central Oklahoma, thanks to the resounding 41-14 Texas victory.
Winning on Halloween is something of a tradition at Texas. In fact, the Longhorns are 15-2-1 all time on All Hallows’ Eve, including that 2009 win. A trip to Ames in 2015 resulted in the type of loss to Iowa State that Texas inflicted on Oklahoma State, but before that, the Horns had reeled off 10 consecutive wins on Halloween spanning close to 80 years.
