DALLAS (AP) - Enough about Colt McCoy and the Texas offense. The Longhorns knocked off rival Oklahoma on Saturday because of their defense.
Aaron Williams knocked out Heisman Trophy winner Sam Bradford on a first-quarter sack, then he and Earl Thomas picked off backup LandryJones in the fourth quarter to send No. 3 Texas to a 16-13 victory Saturday over the No. 20 Sooners.
The 104th edition of this series was one of the ugliest, with the teams combining for eight turnovers and only a single touchdown from each of their supposedly high-scoring offenses.
But for McCoy and the Longhorns (6-0, 3-0 Big 12), all that matters is the W. It's their fourth in five years against the Sooners and it keeps alive their hopes of winning the national championship.
Oklahoma (3-3, 1-1) lost this game last year yet still managed to win the conference and play for the national championship. That won't happen this year.
