On Saturday afternoon, the Oklahoma Sooners outlasted the Texas Longhorns to win the Red River Showdown.
Quarterback Jalen Hurts had his worst game of the season, but still ended up with over 360 yards of offense and four total touchdowns. Hurts led the Sooners to a 34-27 win and was interviewed after the game.
Reporters asked Hurts about the rivalry between Oklahoma and Texas – which Hurts downplayed earlier in the week. “I played in the Iron Bowl. I’ve played in big games. Think I’ll be alright,” Hurts said before the game.
After the game, he kept a similar tune.
“To each their own…this is probably the only time I’ll play in the Cotton Bowl and I’ll remember it forever,” Hurts said.

The senior quarterback might not be that impressed with the Red River Showdown, but he was impressed with the crowd.
With the win, Oklahoma keeps its undefeated season alive and has a clear road to the College Football Playoff. The Sooners won’t face another team of Texas’ caliber until the Big 12 title game – likely against Texas.
Hurts ends his Oklahoma career with the only win that truly matters to fans. Now he’ll try to bring home a national title as well.
