Oklahoma gained 702 yards on the day, just 62 more than the Cowboys, as they did not turn the ball over and improved to 6-1 in conference play. Kennedy Brooks had a big game with 165 yards rushing and three touchdowns, while Kylar Murray threw for 349 yards and a score through the air and added 60 yards on the ground. Trey Sermon ran for 124 yards and scored on the ground twice, both from a yard out, as the Sooners earned their 15th straight victory in the month of November, dating back to 2014. This shootout comes one week after a wild 51-46 win over Texas a week ago for Oklahoma.
Cornelius' pass was intended for Tre Brown on the two-point try, as the pass hit the receiver's hands, but fell incomplete. Cowboys head coach Mike Gundy did not regret the decision to go for two, saying after the game "had a shot at it, just didn't make a good throw." Cornelius made a lot of good throws on this day, throwing for 501 yards and three touchdowns, while Chuba Hubbard had 104 yards and three touchdowns in the loss. Wallace had another big day with 10 catches for 222 yards and two touchdowns, but the Cowboys fell to 5-5 ahead of their next matchup against ninth-ranked West Virginia. Meanwhile, the Sooners hope to earn a Big 12 Title victory and make their first College Football Playoff appearance, and look to help their case when they host Kansas, before a showdown with the Mountaineers to end the regular season.
Staying in the Big 12, the 19th-ranked Texas Longhorns were also in a second straight shootout, this also an in-state rival, as they got past the Texas Tech Red Raiders, 41-34, on Saturday night. Sam Ehlinger's fourth touchdown pass found Lil'Jordan Humphrey with 21 seconds left in the game, giving the Longhorns their seventh win of the season. Ehlinger threw for 312 yards and did not turn the ball over, helping Texas overcome a close loss to the Sooners in the Red River Rivalry.
Humprhey's game-winning touchdown was his second score of the game and eighth catch, as he finished with 159 yards on the night. The game-winner was a 29-yard score and helped Texas survive on the road after blowing a 17-point lead in the fourth quarter. The win snaps a two-game losing streak for Texas, who had the Big 12 lead and a top-10 ranking just three weeks ago. The game-winning scoring drive was a 75-yard possession, which included some key runs from Ehlinger. Devin Duvernay also caught two touchdown passes from Ehlinger, as Texas improved to 5-2 in conference play.
The Red Raiders scored 17 unanswered points over 5 1/2 minutes in the fourth quarter, a run that saw them recover an onside kick to keep the momentum at the time. Jett Douffey had four touchdown passes for the home team, including a tying score to Antoine Wesley with 1:45 to play. Wesley finished with eight catches for 171 yards and two touchdowns. Duffey got the start in place of the injured Alan Bowman and threw for 444 yards, while running 17 times for 80 yards in the loss. The Red Raiders fall to 5-5 on the year and will visit Kansas State next week. Meanwhile, the Longhorns will do battle with the team they are tied with for third place in the Big 12, Iowa State.
