Oklahoma Becomes The Latest Team To Shred Texas' Defense

Sooners outgain Longhorns 677-228 in 2012 gameOklahoma and Texas met for the 107th time Saturday, in a series which dates all the way back to 1900.

In a related development, the famous Red River Rivalry may soon be known as the Red River Rout.

The 2011 contest was won by the Sooners 55-17, with this year's game, which is played annually at Dallas' Cotton Bowl, ending in an even more one-sided fashion, as Texas was pummeled 63-21.

Oklahoma came in as a three-point favorite and easily retained the Golden Hat trophy.

In the two weeks leading up to OU's pounding of Texas, the Longhorns defense was also shredded by Oklahoma State and West Virginia.  

In this game, the Sooners outgained Texas 677 to 289 in total yardage.

It is difficult to comprehend how a team with so much talent and so many NFL prospects, could be so woeful on defense.
