UPSET: Texas Shocks (10) Oklahoma 24-17 In Red River Rivalry

Just one week after Texas suffered perhaps the most embarrassing defeat of the Charlie Strong era to TCU, a loss that many thought put Strong on the hot seat, the Longhorns pulled off the biggest stunner of the college football season to this point with a 24-17 victory over bitter rival Oklahoma.

The Sooners came into this game ranked No. 10 in the country thanks to an explosive offense (521.8 yards per game), but Texas was able to control this game by limiting them to just 278 total yards in this one.

The Longhorns wasted no time jumping on top of Oklahoma as they took a 14-0 lead in the first 10 minutes of the game. After an Oklahoma field goal in the second quarter, both sides traded scores in the second half.

Oklahoma and star quarterback Baker Mayfield had a chance to tie the game down 24-17 late in the fourth quarter, but Texas' defense held firm and held them to negative yards on the drive.

The Longhorns used their rushing attack (313 total rush yards) to win this one as quarterback Jerrod Heard (115 yards), running back D'Onta Foreman (117 yards), and running back Johnathan Gray (76 yards) all had a ton of success against Oklahoma's defense.
