Heading into the fourth quarter, Vondrell McGee scored tying the game at 21-21 while those in burnt orange went wild. Unfortunately for the folks south of the Red River, Sam Bradford connected tossed the game winning touchdown with just under eleven minutes to play.

2015 Oklahoma Sooners Football Countdown To Kickoff | 99 Days!

Oklahoma's Joe Golding was born in 1921 and lived most of his life in Eastern Oklahoma. In the 1946 Red River Rivalry game, Golding picked off a pass from Longhorns' quarterback Tom Landry and returned it 99 yards for a score. The touchdown was the second longest interception in school history (Al Needs returned one for 100 yards against Kansas the year before). A decorated veteran, Golding's 1951 Bowman football card (photoed above) states that he served 44 months in the military where he won the Silver Star, Bronze Star, and Purple Heart. He was commissioned on the battlefield while an...

The Sooner transfer train continued today as Justice Hansen announced his intent to transfer on twitter. pic.twitter.com/9khX7E5JI8— Justice Hansen (@J_Hansen4) May 27, 2015 While not unexpected, it does leave the Sooners with 3 scholarship quarterbacks headed into the fall in Baker Mayfield, Trevor Knight, and Cody Thomas.

Sooners Taking Over the State of Texas in Class of 2016.

The Sooners must recruit the state of Texas well for them to have success. This has always been the case and will continue to be the case. While this is obvious, I thought I would give a quick overview of what players from Texas could find themselves a part of the class of 2016. 1. RB Devway Whaley 5-10/195 from Beaumont, TX. If you were wondering who tops the running back wishlist for the Sooners this tweet will put that to bed. Just spent the morning in the 409 with @OU_CoachJay watching the Best RB in the country.

Texas Longhorns Blank Baylor Bears, Advance To Championship Game

Throughout their three games of the Big XII Tournament, the Texas Longhorns have used three different pitchers. Each starting pitcher has collected a complete game win thus far. Freshman Connor Mayes became the most recent of the trio with a complete game shutout on Saturday. The effort helped Longhorns to a 4-0 victory pushing the folks from Austin into the championship game on Sunday. There's no doubt the Baylor Bears received chances though.

The Oklahoma Sooners aren't use to being the underdog under head coach Patty Gasso. But in Tuscaloosa on a Friday night, that's exactly what they were considered to be. They were going up against a sixth seeded Alabama team that was making their 11th straight Super Regional after all. They looked like the underdog through five innings too, getting down 2-0 to the Crimson Tide and not getting anything going with their bats.
