No. 2 Oklahoma 12, No. 5 Texas 0
DALLAS -- Adrian Peterson ran for 225 yards to help No. 2 Oklahoma grind out a 12-0 victory over No. 5 Texas in the 99th annual Red River Shootout and stretch the Sooners winning streak in the storied rivalry to five straight.
The Longhorns (4-1, 1-1 Big 12) were shut out for the first time in 282 games, ending the longest streak in the country.
Texas kept Oklahoma (5-0, 2-0) out of the end zone until Kejuan Jones scored on a 6-yard run with just 8:07 left. The Sooners, who earlier got a pair of Trey DiCarlo field goals, missed the two-point conversion and would run out the clock for the win.
Showing the speed to run outside and the power to shake tackles, Peterson had runs of 44, 26, 19, 17 and 15 yards, enabling the Sooners to wear down the Longhorns by holding the ball for more than 36 minutes.
Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops gave Peterson only five carries in the first five drives. The game turned once Stoops decided to start riding the player widely considered the nation's best freshman running back.
With the Sooners starting from their 12, Peterson got them deep into Texas territory by running on seven of eight plays. He finished the drive with nine carries and Oklahoma wound up leading 3-0 going into halftime.
OU's first drive of the second half also ended with a short field goal. Peterson carried on six of the nine snaps, with gains of 11 and 17.
Although Jones got the start, Peterson showed what he could do on his second carry -- a 44-yard burst from the OU 4. He had runs of 19 and nine on the drive that ended with Jones' touchdown, sealing Oklahoma's longest streak in the series since winning five straight from 1971-75.
Peterson became the first Oklahoma player to crack 100 yards in each of his first five games. He topped the century mark nearly five minutes before halftime against a revamped Texas defense.
Texas' defense kept things close by forcing three turnovers, including an interception by Derrick Johnson with the Sooners threatening to score late in the third quarter.
Oklahoma's Jason White was 14-of-26 for only 113 yards.
The game drew 79,587 fans, the biggest crowd in the 99-game history of the series.
