Sooners Take Care of Longhorns, 28-20

Sooners Handle Oklahoma, 28-20: Landry Jones threw for 236 yards and two touchdowns, DeMarco Murray ran for two scores on hurry-up plays and No. 8 Oklahoma survived another fourth-quarter swoon Saturday to hand No. 21 Texas its second straight loss, 28-20 in the Red River Rivalry. The Sooners (5-0, 1-0 Big 12) jumped out to a two-touchdown lead in the first quarter, then got bailed out by a muffed punt late for a second straight week. The Longhorns had scored 10 straight points and were set to get the ball back in the final 62 seconds when Aaron Williams dropped the punt and James Winchester recovered it to let Oklahoma run out the clock (AP)
