AUSTIN (KXAN) — Oklahoma quarterback Dillon Gabriel didn’t play in last year’s Red River Rivalry due to a concussion, so this year was his time to give the Longhorns headaches.
Gabriel rushed for a career-high 113 yards and engineered the go-ahead drive late in the fourth quarter to lift the No. 12 Sooners to a 34-30 win over No. 3 Texas on Saturday at the Cotton Bowl.
Gabriel drove Oklahoma 75 yards in about a minute to set up a 3-yard game-winning touchdown pass to Nic Anderson with 0:15 left in the game. Texas had a chance with a hail mary at the end of the game, but Quinn Ewers’ pass was batted down at the goal line.
