I don't think they're showing out quite as well as was expected pre-season.

OU is probably around the same as last year, which is better than ISU.  Anything can happen and an upset could happen there, but it would definitely be an upset.

And I'd like to think that Texas has improved since last year.  We already had plenty of talent, we just had crap coaching.  IF that has improved, then the Horns should also be better than ISU.

The Cyclones might have missed their window.
I don't think OU is as good right now as it was at the end of last year.
I agree that the Cyclones have missed their way.  They've stumbled, bumbled, and fumbled their way to two losses, so their ceiling is probably 8-4.  The Clones have never had a 10-win season.

The way this game started, I thought I was going to have to post congratulations to the Horns!

I still may have to do that, but right now, with the Sooners having fought their way to a 35-point comeback, things are looking good for the team in crimson and cream.

Off the top of my head, I can't remember such a turnabout in the RRS.  But Texas may yet have another turnabout in them.

Largest comeback by either team in the series.  Largest combined score.

The Horns did have a comeback in them.  Fortunately, the Sooners had an answering drive to win the game.

Kennedy Brooks got stronger and stronger in the 2nd half.

It's always risky to proclaim "best ever" in the immediate aftermath of a great game, but that was the greatest OU-Texas game that I can think of.

Great game, Horns!  Your guys came out ready to fight and took it to the Sooners in the 1st half.  And they showed some heart when OU had all the momentum and taken the lead late.

But somebody had to win, and the good guys did.

BOOMER SOONER!!!

Yep.  Fantastic game in so many ways.
And a ton of human-interest stories.  A bunch of them involving Casey Thompson and Caleb Williams.

They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

Tale of two halves.  Horns owned the first, Sooners the second.  This was an instant classic.

Reminds me of the 1st Rocky movie.
I'm not sure whether Rocky or Apollo Creed won the fight, but I think it was the latter.
Apollo: "You aint' gettin' no rematch!"
Rocky: "I don't want one!"
Or words to that effect.

Congrats to the Sooners.

I can't really say anything else about this game.  I can't find any positives here.  The outcome of the game sickens me.
