The Longhorns will look to avenge last year's blowout loss to Oklahoma on Saturday at the Cotton Bowl.
Aiming to halt a two-year losing streak to the Sooners, the Texas Longhorns will add yet another chapter to their storied rivalry on Saturday afternoon in the 107th installment of the Red River Shootout.
Mack Brown's Longhorns are coming off a narrow 3-point loss to West Virginia in one of the most entertaining games of the weekend, and are now 1-1 to open up Big-12 play for the third consecutive year. Despite giving up a bloated total of 112 points over the last three weeks, Texas continues to ride the near-perfect arm of sophomore quarterback David Ash.
The 6'3 Ash has only thrown more than 30 passes in a game one time all season, but remarkably has not once finished a game with a completion percentage less than 72.7 percent. Though he could muster only one touchdown in the loss to West Virginia, Ash is hoping to be the first Longhorns signal caller to beat the Sooners since Colt McCoy back in 2009.
