The 15th-ranked Longhorns are trailing 46-8 to the 13th-ranked Sooners entering the fourth quarter in Dallas on Saturday afternoon.
The Oklahoma Sooners have taken their foot off the pedal, but they still hold a 46-8 lead over the Texas Longhorns going into the fourth quarter on Saturday afternoon. While the Sooners are simply trying to run out the clock at this point, their defense continues to shut down everything Texas tries to do offensively.
Early in the third quarter, Texas cornerback Carrington Byndom intercepted a Landry Jones pass and returned it 28 yards for the touchdown, but the Longhorns missed the extra point. Since then, it's been relatively quiet, with the Sooners adding a pair of scores to their lead while continuing to play stifling defense.
Texas' problems on offense were no different in the third quarter, as the offense once again failed to score any points. The Longhorns mustered just two first downs in the entire first quarter and over the first 45 minutes of the game, they've had possession for just 14 minutes.
