For the fourth time in the Bob Stoops era, OU has whipped Texas with an historic rout. Let’s rank the four blowouts:
1. 2000: OU 63-14. The 10th-ranked Sooners led the 11th-ranked Longhorns 42-0 at halftime. The rout ushered the Sooners back into the national elite.
2. 2012: OU 63-21. The 13th-ranked Sooners led 36-2 at halftime and had allowed only two first downs. The rout suggests that the Big 12 title and BCS contention still could be achieved.
3. 2003: OU 65-13. The top-ranked Sooners led 37-13 at halftime, though Vince Young’s amazing run gave ‘Horn fans reason to return in the second half. The rout elevated OU into discussions as greatest team of all time.
4. 2011: OU 55-17. The Sooners led 34-10 at halftime and waltzed with three defensive touchdowns. The rout was OU’s last hurrah – the Sooners were upset by Texas Tech two weeks later and finished 10-3.
