No. 11 Sooners hold off Texas in 31-26 win

Alex Ross had a 91-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, Zack Sanchez scored on a 43-yard interception return and No. 11 Oklahoma held on for another bounce-back victory under coach Bob Stoops, beating Texas 31-26 in the Red River rivalry Saturday.

Oklahoma (5-1, 2-1 Big 12) used those big returns to go ahead to stay despite only 29 total yards in the first half. Trevor Knight threw a 24-yard touchdown pass to Sterling Shepard and Samaje Perine had a 13-yard TD run the final 20 minutes.

Tyrone Swoopes threw his second touchdown pass to John Harris and ran 12 yards for a score for the Longhorns (2-4, 1-2) in a span of 3 1/2 minutes in the fourth quarter.

In each of the Sooners’ 11 losses overall since 2009, they have beaten that team the next season, now including that unexpected loss to Texas a year ago.
