The Oklahoma Sooners are currently having their way with the Longhorns of Texas, desperately trying to get back into a comfortable BCS position after all the latest stumbles by Top 10 teams. But beyond boosting their national rank, the Sooners want to take out their aggression on an old rival of theirs in one of the most storied rivalries in NCAA history.
Damien Williams was looking to help his Sooners win this year’s Red River Rivalry any way he could, and his help ended up being historic.
Late in the first quarter with the Sooners leading 6-2, Williams took a handoff at his own 5-yard line and he didn’t stop until he reached the other goal line. Williams performed a few impressive maneuvers that made Longhorn defenders look silly, and it was off to the races for Williams who’s 95-yard touchdown run was the longest ever in the Red River Rivalry.
It also sparked what is turning out to be a blowout in favor of the Sooners. After that touchdown by Williams which made the score 13-2, Oklahoma has scored 3 more touchdowns, all of which were scored by Blake Bell who now has 4 on the day, and even got a safety to make the score 36-2 at halftime.
