The Oklahoma Sooners were supposed to be able to run all over the Texas defense--but that hasn't happened. Heck, the defense was supposed to be the downfall of the Longhorns--but instead it is taking it to the Sooners and giving them a serious run for their money.
So serious that a 295 pound beast of a man (former high school running back Chris Whaley) intercepted Oklahoma quarterback Blake Bell (his first of the season) and gave it the Matt Schaub treatment:
Blake Bell had little success passing in the first half and their running game wasn't much better--and now Texas just returned a punt for a touchdown (as I'm typing)!
Folks--do we have a major upsets on her hands here?
BEST OF MAXIM
Like any Oklahoma fan, the Sooners’ nation always looks at the preseason schedule to circle the date of the annual Red River Rivalry.
The No. 12 Oklahoma Sooners (5-0, 2-0 Big 12) and the Texas Longhorns (3-2, 2-0 Big 12) will meet on Oct. 12 at noon (Eastern Time) at the old Cotton Bowl in Dallas, Texas.
Both teams will meet for the 108th edition, as the Longhorns hold the edge...
Blake Bell's first start in the Red River Rivalry was a forgetful one for Sooners in 36-20 loss to Texas.
Oklahoma quarterback Blake Bell went from touchdowns to turnovers and sacks against Texas.
A year after getting four scores as the short-yardage master in a blowout win over the Longhorns, Bell threw two interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown, and had minus-27 yards rushing in No. 12 Oklahoma's 36-20 loss to Texas on Saturday.
''We didn't play well...
DALLAS-- We hear from Oklahoma quarterback Blake Bell, co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Josh Heupel and defensive coordinator Mike Stoops outside the locker room following Saturday's 36-20 loss to Texas.
DALLAS -- This is what happens when you turn the ball over and can't run the ball or stop the run.
You lose, and it's not close.
This is what you expect when you give up big plays on special teams and stop making the simple plays that became so common-place the first five games of the season as Oklahoma won at Notre Dame and snuck up close to the top 10 in the national...
Someone forgot to tell the Longhorns that they’re supposed to just roll over and play dead today against Oklahoma. Texas, playing inspired football, has taken the lead in Dallas, 10-3, after defensive tackle Chris Whaley picked off Sooners quarterback Blake Bell and took it back to the house. The 2013 version of the Red River Rivalry is shaping up to be a good one.
Week 6 was not one of the better weeks as far as the GGG plays are concerned. There are some good matchups this week and hopefully these picks can help you make those final roster decisions.
Good QB: Blake Bell, Oklahoma (vs. Texas)- We know how Bell can be used running the ball but he has developed into a pretty good passer as well. He is looking down field a lot...
Texas Longhorns DL Chris Whaley (all 295 pounds of him) intercepted Oklahoma QB Blake Bell and rumbled 31 yards for the touchdown.
