Big 12 referee Mike Defee told a pool reporter that both he and the head linesman were hit during the pre-game incident between Oklahoma and Texas: "This is the 115th playing of this great game and to have that kind of thing happen is disappointing. We can't control that as officials. ... What happened out there is an embarrassment to everyone. It shouldn't happen." Defee said both coaches had been warned entering the game. He had never called a pre-game penalty before today.

Texas coach Tom Herman on Saturday's loss: "This hurts. It really does. When you've invested what this team has invested, any loss hurts, especially when you lose to your rival. ... Again, losing is not a failure unless you refuse or don't learn from the things that you did poorly. We need to be able to learn from this, put it behind us and move forward."

The "Horns Down" ban has been lifted after Oklahoma beats Texas 34-27.

Six different Oklahoma players have sacks today, and 12 players have contributed to the team's 12 tackles for loss. While linebacker Kenneth Murray is playing at an All-America level and nose guard Neville Gallimore has significantly upgraded his play, the overall unit looks completely different under first-year coordinator Alex Grinch. Texas is averaging jut 3.7 yards per play.

The Texas run game is alive and this game amazingly is tied 10-10 after Oklahoma's defense finally cracked. Backup Roschon Johnson raced 57 yards and then scored on a 4-yard plunge. Before those two plays, Texas had only 7 net rushing yards. Quarterback Sam Ehlinger deserves a lot of credit in keeping the drive going with his pass to Johnson on third-and-8.

Oklahoma leads Texas 10-3 at halftime of the Red River Showdown, thanks to a dominant defense that has 4 sacks and 8 tackles for loss. Defensive coordinator Alex Grinch's creative blitzing scheme has given quarterback Sam Ehlinger and a young offensive line all sorts of trouble. The Sooners have out-gained Texas 260-83 (12 rush yards) and should be up more, but have two Jalen Hurts turnovers in the red zone, along with a 19-yard field goal after stalling inside the Texas 5.

Oklahoma leads 7-0 after the first quarter. The Sooners hold a 135-36 edge in total yards, as a pressuring defense has flustered Sam Ehlinger and the Longhorns so far. Oklahoma's two biggest plays have been runs -- 27 yards (Jalen Hurts) and 23 yards (Kennedy Brooks). Texas needs its offensive line and tackling to improve in a hurry.
