DALLAS — Texas looked more like OU’s scout team than its most bitter rival.
OU’s starters didn’t allow a point.
Through the first three quarters, the Longhorns put eight points on the scoreboard. They came on Quandre Diggs’ PAT return following the Sooners’ first touchdown and on Carington Byndum’s interception return on OU’s first drive of the second half.
It was one of the most memorable performances of Bob Stoops’ 14 Sooner seasons.
“Well, it certainly ranks up there with 63-14 (2000) and 65-13 (2003). It’s in the same ballpark,” Stoops said. “I think if we left our one defense out there I don’t think the end would have been like it was. So, it would’ve been right there with those.”
The Sooners played great defense both of those seasons.
Years later, Saturday looked familiar.
