Oklahoma was ranked No. 6 in the country when it rolled over the Baylor Bears 66-33 in Norman to improve to 5-0 on the season. Meantime, the No. 19 Longhorns went to Manhattan, KS and had to hold on for dear life to pick up a 19-14 win over the Kansas State Wildcats.
Next week’s game will be the first one since 2012 where both teams are ranked. That one didn’t end well for the Longhorns, as the Sooners won 63-21. OU has won two in a row over UT, but both have been decided by five points (45-40 in 2016 and 29-24 last season). In 2015, Texas upset the Sooners 24-17, but OU still wound up making the College Football Playoff that season.
The Sooners hold a 6-2 edge this decade, but all-time, the Longhorns are still on top by a fairly wide margin of 61-46-5. The rivalry dates back to 1900 when Texas won 28-2. The game has been played in Dallas every season since 1929.
