Baker Mayfield's first INT of 2017 comes at crucial time vs Texas

But more importantly, it gave Texas the momentum it desperately needed at the end of the first half. Oklahoma took just a 20-10 lead into halftime despite thoroughly dominating Texas in the game's first 30 minutes....

Ex-Texas recruit makes first start for Oklahoma; Malik Jefferson ties career high tackle mark

On its last-ditch drive in a 29-24 loss to Oklahoma, Texas had two apparent completions to Lil'Jordan Humphrey overturned on replay review. On one, he was ruled not to have possession before going out of bounds. On the other, replay showed Humphrey stepped out of bounds and then returned before the catch. On its final play, Texas attempted three laterals after a completion to Chris Warren III but got no further than its 48. -- Baker Mayfield's 54-yard touchdown pass to Jeff Badet in the first quarter and 59-yarder to Mark Andrews gave him five 50-yard plus completions against Texas in his...

Oklahoma Sooners Football Hot Links: Baker Mayfield has the last laugh against Texas

Also, ADRIAN PETERSON IS BAAAAAAAACK! Having a rough Monday? Well, it’s obviously better than you last Monday, so cheer up! The Oklahoma Sooners were able to defeat Texas on Saturday despite the best efforts of the Big 12 officiating crew, who seemed to only be concerned for the safety of one team. And despite obvious holds on pretty much every passing down, Oklahoma’s defense got the job done by playing with a fire that we haven’t seen since Columbus. Perhaps the most satisfying moment of the day came when Baker Mayfield trotted of the field one final time wearing the Golden...

Showdown time: What a Red River win would mean for Herman's Longhorns and Riley's Sooners

Try as he might, Texas coach Tom Herman cannot wipe Oklahoma's 63-14 win over the Longhorns in 2000 from his memory."I still remember that score," said Herman, a Texas grad assistant at the time. "It's been embedded into my brain."Oklahoma counterpart Lincoln Riley, then in his first year as the Sooners' offensive coordinator in 2015, saw Baker Mayfield get sacked six times in a 24-17 Texas win."A learning experience," Riley calls it now.Herman and Riley each have some idea about the harsh light that can accompany the Saturday Red River Showdown at the Cotton Bowl.The two are now linked.

By Ryan Aber Staff Writer raber@oklahoman.comAndrews' game-winner When Mark Andrews caught Baker Mayfield's pass at about the Texas 30 with less than seven minutes to go in the game, Andrews knew he was about to score. “It was something that we had called from up top and said it was going to work from their coverage and sure enough, run the route, it was pretty open and Baker (Mayfield) threw a great ball,” Andrews said. The Sooners failed to get points on four of their last five drives by dialing up the play to Andrews gave them just enough room to escape the Cotton Bowl with the...

Mayfield's Mark: What kind of legacy does Baker Mayfield leave on the Red River Rivalry?

By Brooke Pryor Staff Writer bpryor@oklahoman.comBaker Mayfield has already carved out a pretty hefty place in Oklahoma football lore.

Mayfield has a chance to join an elite club this weekend as one of only six OU quarterbacks to beat Texas at least twice since World War...
