Oct. 7 (UPI) — Freshman Cameron Dicker booted a 40-yard field goal with nine seconds remaining and 19th-ranked Texas upset seventh-ranked Oklahoma by a 48-45 count in college football action Saturday in Dallas.
Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger threw for two touchdowns and 314 yards, and ran for two scores. His biggest play was running for four yards on third-and-3 to keep the Longhorns’ game-winning drive alive. He later ran eight yards on a draw to set up Dicker’s kick.
The Longhorns built a sizable advantage then had to hang on after quarterback Kyler Murray rallied the Sooners with three touchdowns in the fourth quarter.
