The Texas Longhorns are exorcising a lot of demons today. They came in to the game having lost the last 3 games, two of which by large margins. They were two touchdown under dogs and no one really gave them a chance.

Texas in a lot of ways are manhandling Oklahoma and winning the game 29-13. In a lot of ways though, Oklahoma is beating themselves. They threw a interception that was returned for a touchdown and then there was this 85 yard punt return by Daje Johnson for a touchdown. It almost looks like he was never touched during the return, maybe at the beginning but there was definitely no one near him later.

Here is the punt return:

After finding the end zone, he did the “I’m so fast, my feet are on fire” dance. Don’t worry though, he fanned the flames out. Oklahoma blocked the extra point try on this touchdown though.

Shortly after this play, Texas intercepted another pass from Oklahoma quarterback Blake Bell and their struggles continue. It is still the third quarter, but Texas could break away with this game and really embarrass Oklahoma late in this game.

everything was ok.
