DALLAS (AP) Tyrone Swoopes threw a touchdown pass and ran for a score as Texas found relief in the Red River rivalry yet again, upsetting No. 10 Oklahoma 24-17 on Saturday.
Coach Charlie Strong's Longhorns (2-4, 1-2 Big 12) came to Dallas in the midst of the program's worst start in 59 years and as two-touchdown underdog to the Sooners (4-1, 1-1).
It's been nothing but turmoil and excruciating losses for the Longhorns so far, but Strong's defense harassed Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield and the offense made just enough plays to show Texas fans that better times might not be so far away.

Jerrod Heard mostly guided the Texas offense with 168 total yards and Swoopes played finisher near the goal line. His 2-yard TD flip to Caleb Bluiett with 13:52 left in the fourth quarter made it 24-10.
Oklahoma responded with a long touchdown drive capped by Samaje Perine's 1-yard touchdown run to cut it to 24-17 with 8:00 minutes left.
Oklahoma got the ball back with 6:05 left, but two sacks, the last by Naashon Hughes and Poona Ford, forced a punt. The Longhorns then killed the clock, with Heard providing the final two first downs.
Texas is now 6-2 since 1989 in Red River games in which it was unranked and the Sooners were ranked.
NO. 1 OHIO STATE 49, MARYLAND 28
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Cardale Jones threw two touchdown passes, J.T. Barrett scored three times and Ohio State remained unbeaten - and mostly underwhelming - with victory over Maryland.
Ezekiel Elliott had two touchdowns for the Buckeyes (6-0, 2-0 Big Ten), who were tied 21-21 in the third quarter before shaking free of the Terrapins (2-4, 0-2) and extending the nation's longest winning streak to 19. Ohio State has won 26 straight regular-season conference games.
Ohio State coach Urban Meyer juggled his quarterbacks, using Jones to start drives and Barrett to finish them. Jones threw a 19-yard TD pass to Braxton Miller and connected on a 48-yarder to Jalin Marshall. Outscored 73-6 the past two weeks, the Terrapins put up a fight amid speculation about coach Randy Edsall's future. Maryland quarterback Perry Hills ran for 170 yards and two TDs.
NO. 3 BAYLOR 66, KANSAS 7
LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Seth Russell threw three touchdown passes, Shock Linwood ran for 135 yards and a score, and Baylor romped past Kansas.
Russell threw for 246 yards, all in the first half. Two of the TD strikes went to Corey Coleman, pushing his nation-leading total to 13, and the other to 6-foot-7, 410-pound tight end LaQuan McGowan, helping the Bears (5-0, 2-0 Big 12) to a 52-7 halftime lead.
The Bears piled up 644 yards despite playing backups the entire second half. Second-string quarterback Jarrett Stidham was 9 of 10 for 217 yards and two touchdowns.
Freshman Ryan Willis threw for 158 yards and a score in his first start for Kansas (0-5, 0-2), but he also had an interception and lost a fumble that was returned for a touchdown.
NO. 14 MISSISSIPPI, NEW MEXICO STATE 3
OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Chad Kelly threw for 384 yards and three touchdowns to lead Mississippi.
Kelly, who came into the day leading the Southeastern Conference in passing, has topped 300 yards in four of his six games. He completed 24 of 33 throws.
Laquon Treadwell caught eight passes for 136 yards and two touchdowns, including one on a spectacular one-handed grab down the right sideline.
The Rebels (5-1) finished with 665 yards of total offense. Eugene Brazley ran for a team-high 98 yards, including a 78-yard touchdown. New Mexico State is 0-5.
NO. 22 IOWA 29, ILLINOIS 20
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Jordan Canzeri ran for 256 yards on a school-record 43 carries and Iowa held off Illinois for its sixth straight victory.
C.J. Beathard had 200 yards passing and two touchdowns for the Hawkeyes (6-0, 2-0 Big Ten). They've already taken down four Power Five opponents heading into next week's game against No. 13 Northwestern.
Canzeri's 75-yard touchdown run put Iowa ahead 23-13 late in the third quarter. Geronimo Allison pulled Illinois back within three on a 53-yard reception, but freshman Ke'Shawn Vaughn's fumble with 3:09 left doomed the Illini. Wes Lunt threw for 317 yards and a touchdown for Illinois (4-2, 1-1).
