Oklahoma Vs. Texas Final Score: Sooners Dominate Red River Rivalry, 55-17

Oklahoma asserted its dominance in the Red River Rivalry by crushing Texas, 55-17, and served notice that it deserves gaudy rankings as much as the SEC titans that top the polls.

Landry Jones led the Sooners in a first half full of passing proficiency, throwing for over 300 yards and three touchdowns in the first two quarters and leading Oklahoma on three drives of more than 60 yards before halftime. He finished 31 of 50 through the air for 367 yards and three TDs.

But Oklahoma controlled the game throughout, on both offense and defense, rolling up 453 yards of total offense despite operating in second gear for much of the second half and scoring three defensive touchdowns. The only Texas offensive touchdown of the day came on a fade from David Ash to Jaxon Shipley with less than three minutes left in the fourth quarter, and the Longhorns committed five turnovers.

With the victory, Oklahoma moves to 5-0 on the 2011 college football season and 2-0 in Big 12 play, and gets a massive win on par with recent triumphs by LSU and Alabama. Texas loses its first game of the year, and falls to 4-1 and 1-1 in the Big 12.

Texas Vs. Oklahoma Score Update: Longhorns Being Routed In Third Quarter

Oklahoma was dominating the Red River Rivalry in the first half. And then the Sooners added two more touchdowns in the first half of the third quarter.

Frank Alexander forced a fumble and returned it for a touchdown on the first Texas series of the second half to make the score 41-10, and then Dominique Whaley broke a 64-yard touchdown run that pushed the advantage to 48-10. Landry Jones, so good in the first half, has only thrown for 21 yards in the second half.

Even the things that go right for Texas aren't actually going right: D.J. Monroe's kickoff return for a touchdown was nullified by a holding penalty.

Worst of all: Oklahoma has more than half of the third quarter and the entire fourth quarter to add more points to the board. "The Red River Rivalry is turning into a Red River bloodbath," said ABC's Brent Musburger, and it's impossible to argue with that.

Oklahoma Vs. Texas Halftime Score: Sooners Dominating, 34-10, Behind Landry Jones

Oklahoma got an interception return to give it a 27-3 lead in the Red River Rivalry. Fozzy Whitaker gave Texas its first touchdown of the day on a return of his own. And then the Oklahoma offense obliterated all semblance of momentum for the Longhorns.

Whittaker's 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown cut Oklahoma's lead — swollen by 17 points off three Texas turnovers — to 27-10 with a few minutes left in the second quarter. But then Landry Jones led the Sooners on a seven-play, 83-yard drive that extended the lead to 34-10, and Oklahoma's defense got another stop to finish a first half of dominance.

Jones has thrown for 305 yards and three touchdowns in just two quarters of work, and Ryan Broyles, Jaz Reynolds, and Kenny Stills all have at least four catches and 50 receiving yards.

Whittaker's return also covered more yardage than the Texas offense has accrued all day. Case McCoy and David Ash, who threw the pick-six to Demontre Hurst immediately before Whittaker's return, have combined to lead the Longhorns to just 87 yards so far.

Red River Rivalry 2011 Score: Oklahoma Up 20-3 On Defenseless Texas

Oklahoma is threatening to make the Red River Rivalry a blowout before the half. Landry Jones hooked up with Ryan Broyles for his second passing touchdown of the day, and the Sooners lead 20-3 with over 10 minutes to go in the second quarter.

Jones helped save the Oklahoma touchdown drive, which began near midfield after a David Ash interception, by calling an audible to Jaz Reynolds on third and 25 — and connecting on a 30-yard pass. He's now thrown for 196 yards on 15-of-22 passing.

Texas' offense isn't looking like it has the firepower to keep up with the Sooners, either. The 'Horns have just 56 yards, and no plays of more than 18 yards.

Texas Vs. Oklahoma Score: Sooners Up 13-3 Early In Second Quarter

It may not formally be the Red River Shootout anymore, but Oklahoma's offense is firing with both barrels. A pretty pass from Landry Jones to Kenny Stills produced the first touchdown of Saturday's Oklahoma-Texas rivalry, and gave the Sooners a 13-3 lead one play into the second quarter.

Jones faked a throw to the flat, then found Stills wide open in the end zone for an easy six-point play. The pass was Jones' 12th completion in 16 throws on the day, and moved him over 150 yards passing for the game.

Those are numbers that Texas' defense can't be happy about, especially because the Longhorns have managed to stymie Dominique Whaley and the Oklahoma running game so far. If Jones can get whatever he wants despite the defense knowing the Sooners are throwing, it could be a long day for the guys in burnt orange.

Oklahoma Vs. Texas Score: Sooners Strike First With Field Goal

Oklahoma started its Red River Shootout Rivalry game against Texas strong, but the Sooners couldn't put a touchdown on the board after stalling in the red zone. Michael Hunnicutt booted a 26-yard field goal to give Oklahoma its first score of the game and a 3-0 lead.

Landry Jones led the Sooners on a seven-play, 62-yard drive that featured four passes for 68 yards, but he failed to connect on his fifth pass, a fade to Kenny Stills, and Oklahoma was forced to kick a field goal.

The drive took 2:46 and included Oklahoma taking its first timeout before that final third down with goal to go. The quick drive is sort of a staple of the Oklahoma offense; timeouts to slow the tempo are decidedly not.
