The Oklahoma Sooners have been dominating the Texas Longhorns by a 146-58 margin. Oklahoma has taken the win on the last three games in the series, which doesn’t look good for the Longhorns when they take on the No. 12 Sooners again this Saturday. The battle will be taking place at the Cotton Bowl during the State Fair of Texas and Oklahoma fans seem to be gearing up for another win.
Oklahoma Sooners vs Texas Longhorns
“I don’t want to talk about last year. This isn’t the 2012 Texas Longhorns.” That’s what Texas junior defensive back Quandre Diggs had to say but the 2013 Longhorn defense isn’t looking too good either. Previously ranked No. 15, the Longhorns suffered a 40-21 loss against BYU in the second game. The day after Texas gave up a school record 550 yards rushing against BYU, coach Mack Brown fired their second year coordinator Manny Diaz. When you fire the coordinator after two games – that’s not a good sign.
The Texas Longhorns came back with a win over Kansas State. Another win for the Longhorns came with a field goal in the last 4 minutes against the Iowa State Cyclones. However, when it comes to the Sooners, Texas will need to makes sure they don’t give up a big lead early on. That’s been the Longhorns fate for the last two years. In each year against the Longhorns, the Oklahoma Sooners have had the game in the bag by halftime.
“They were more physical than us,” Coach Brown said. “The games were over before they started.”
A lot of fans were hoping to see the Texas Longhorns become a Big 12 winner this year but that hasn’t been working out so good. The Longhorns are looking slightly overmatched against the unbeaten Sooners. What do you think will happen this Saturday? Will the Longhorns come out of their slump against the Sooners?
