ENJOY Texas vs Texas Tech Live :It feels like it’s been a month since the No. 8 Texas Longhorns last played a football game, but the wait is just about over with the Texas Tech Red Raiders coming to Norman this Saturday to kick off Big 12 play. For a while, this contest was far from a sure thing with positive COVID-19 tests and contact tracing protocols reportedly ravaging both teams since the 2020 season began, but somehow they’ve each managed to make it to this point above the threshold line. fdgAnd yes, it is happening!
At 48-23 in the fourth quarter, it looked like it was about to be Oklahoma’s ugliest loss of the Lincoln Riley era. Suddenly, the Sooners woke up and surged for 18 unanswered points, but a controversial onside kick was ruled in favor of Kansas State, effectively icing the game and sealing the improbable upset.hjj
Though the loss to K-State didn’t keep OU out of the College Football Playoff in 2019, there is no denying the bad taste it left in the mouths of Riley, Grinch and every Sooner who suited up that day. For the past two weeks, this team has been reminded (either internally or externally) of that embarrassing defeat last October, and that doesn’t bode well for anybody counting on Oklahoma to sleepwalk its way into this one.jhgj
