OUch. Oklahoma lowered the boom and Belldozed Texas in one of the more lopsided editions of the Red River Shootout. The Sooners' 63-21 victory was an emphatic mandate on toughness and pride in what is – or had been – one of college football's most attractive rivalry games. Blake Bell, alias the Belldozer, scored four touchdowns and Trey Millard made the game's signature play by leaping through two Longhorn defenders and knocking one to the turf as if he were no more than a traffic cone. In short the Sooners beat up their neighbors to the south and initiated a new series of questions as to whether Mack Brown's tenure in Austin should come to an end. Last year Oklahoma humbled Texas, 55-17, at the Cotton Bowl, but that was an inexperienced Longhorn herd. This October the carnage was worse, as OU won 63-21. Texas' only points until midway through the fourth quarter came off a blocked PAT that was returned for two points and an interception that was returned for a touchdown (the Longhorns shanked their PAT). By the time Texas quarterback Case McCoy relieved an injured David Ash and threw a pair of late touchdown passes, ABC had already switched away from the contest. Losing two years in a row to your marquee rival by at least 38 points is awful enough. When you are a program such as Texas, which has every recruiting advantage a program could ever wish to have, that is an indictment on Brown and his staff.
