Turnaround in Big D: Texas runs past No. 10 Oklahoma 24-17
By Steve Habel/Senior Editor
DALLAS — Texas coach Charlie Strong said he has had a hard time sleeping lately, what with the Longhorns’ fan base stunned and upset by the team’s poor start and perceived lack of improvement and with national college football pundits opining that the job was too much for him to handle.
That all likely changed Saturday when unranked Texas used a potent rushing attack to rack up 313 yards and a stifling defense to stun No. 10 Oklahoma, 24-17, in the Red River Rivalry game at the Cotton Bowl.
The victory was, without a doubt, the most important in Strong’s 19-game-and-growing tenure at the Longhorns’ helm.
