Alex Ross had a 91-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, Zack Sanchez scored on a 43-yard interception return and No. 11 Oklahoma held on for another bounce-back victory under coach Bob Stoops, beating Texas 31-26 in the Red River rivalry Saturday.
Oklahoma (5-1, 2-1 Big 12) used those big returns to go ahead to stay despite only 29 total yards in the first half. Trevor Knight threw a 24-yard touchdown pass to Sterling Shepard and Samaje Perine had a 13-yard TD run in the final 20 minutes.
Tyrone Swoopes threw his second touchdown pass to John Harris and ran 12 yards for a score for the Longhorns (2-4, 1-2) in a span of 3½ minutes in the fourth quarter.
