The Texas Longhorns beat the Oklahoma Sooners 24-17 on Saturday. As a 17-point underdog, the Longhorns managed to win outright and continued a three-year trend of covering against the Sooners as underdogs.
There’s never been a question about the relationship between redshirt freshman quarterback Jerrod Heard and junior quarterback Tyrone Swoopes. Each is the other’s biggest fan — even when they compete for playing time.
Defensive coordinator Vance Bedford said at his Wednesday press conference that the Longhorns have no choice but to move past their 50-7 loss to No. 2 TCU. He said all the team can do is learn from its mistakes and keep improving.
Longhorns fans everywhere are painfully aware that Texas is in the midst of its worst start since 1956, at four losses and a single win. The 1956 squad went on to finish the season with a 1-9 record, its only win a second-week victory over Tulane.
