Video: Awesome Pregame Motivational Video Texas Watched Before Beating Oklahoma

A Texas runner goes past a Texas A&M defender.

Searching for ways to remedy a depressing 1-4 start to the season, the Longhorns needed a way to reinvent themselves heading into this past weekend's Red River Rivalry against No. 10 Oklahoma. While they had already lost to three ranked opponents through the first five games, the Sooners had just beaten two of their own in Tennessee and West Virginia. It was going to be an uphill climb for Texas.

With the rivalry and history in mind, Texas' staff had a plan, showing the team this awesome motivational video before the game, featuring scenes from the 'Dark Knight.' It's pretty intense, and it appears to have worked in getting the Longhorns fired up. Rivals' Anwar Richardson shared the video via Twitter.
