Case McCoy threw two touchdowns, defensive tackle Chris Whaley returned an interception 31 yards for a score and Texas beat 12th-ranked Oklahoma 36-20 Saturday.

It was the first win for McCoy and these Texas seniors over the Sooners. And it provides a reprieve, if only temporarily, for Longhorns coach Mack Brown from all the speculation about his future.

It was Brown's 154th victory in his 16 seasons at Texas. That matches coach Bob Stoops' win total in 15 seasons with the Sooners.

Texas (4-2, 3-0 Big 12) never trailed after Whaley's impressive touchdown play in the first quarter.

Oklahoma (5-1, 2-1) had won three in a row in the series, the last two by at least 38 points.

Daje Johnson had an 85-yard punt return for a TD for Texas. Jonathan Gray had 123 yards rushing and Malcolm Brown had 120.
