DALLAS -- No. 13/10 Oklahoma posted a 63-21 victory over No. 15/15 Texas Saturday afternoon in the AT&T Red River Rivalry at the Cotton Bowl.
Oklahoma (4-1, 2-1 Big 12) took the opening kickoff and went 75 yards in 14 plays in a drive capped by an 8-yard touchdown run by reserve quarterback Blake Bell. However, on the ensuing point-after attempt, Texas defensive tackle Chris Whaley blocked the attempt. Quandre Diggs scooped up the ball and raced into the end zone to cut the Longhorns' (4-2, 1-2 Big 12) deficit to 6-2.
Oklahoma's Damien Williams ran for a 95-yard touchdown to give the Sooners a 13-2 lead with 4:09 left in the first quarter. Then Bell scored on a pair of 1-yard touchdown runs with the second coming with 9:41 left in the half, giving the Sooners a 27-2 lead.
Oklahoma picked up two points on a safety when Texas running back Joe Bergeron was tackled in the end zone after a punt was downed at the 1-yard line. OU then pushed its lead to 36-2 with 3:28 left in the half when Bell scored again from 1 yard out.
Texas cornerback Carrington Byndom scored the Horns' first touchdown of the day when he picked off quarterback Landry Jones at the OU 28 and raced into the end zone untouched. The point-after attempt failed and the score remained 36-8.
Jones, who was 21 of 37 for 321 yards, added a pair of touchdown passes and Mike Hunnicutt kicked two field goals for OU before Texas got back on the board in the fourth quarter.
Case McCoy, subbing for an injured David Ash, hit wide receiver Mike Davis for a 44-yard touchdown to cut the OU lead to 56-15. Davis finished the game with five catches for 89 yards.
McCoy found wide receiver John Harris for a 19-yard touchdown on the final play of the game.
