DALLAS, Texas — From rival Austin high schools to teammates boosting Texas back to its best. 

Thanks to former Lake Travis kicker Cameron Dicker plus ex-Westlake quarterback Sam Ehlinger, the Horns have the upper hand once again over arch-nemesis Oklahoma. 

Dicker the Kicker, as the catchy moniker has come to be known, booted through the game-winning field goal to give Texas an exhilarating 48-45 victory over the Sooners. 

As the time tick-tocked down Saturday at the Cotton Bowl, Dicker calmly kicked through a 40-yard field goal with nine seconds left to send Texas and its fans into a frenzy of screaming Hook’Em with their Horns up.
