So what about the dream? Did he fumble there too?

“I think I got tackled,” McFarland said of the dream. “I didn't fumble. I know that.”

On Monday, McFarland said the interception that turned into a fumble “hurt,” but commented that there was a reason he had the dream before reality.

“God was talking to me,” McFarland said. “It was just an experience — a big play like that is something you can tell your kids about later on, but I just didn't end the way I wanted it to.”

TEXAS NATIVES TO FACE TEXAS RIVALS

Defensive tackle R.J. Washington will face off against a running back/wide receiver he used to play in All-Star games with: D.J. Monroe. That's not the only recognizable player that Washington or other Texas natives on the OU roster will see this weekend.

“For the most part, the Texas people are pretty much all from Texas, and a lot of people from OU are usually from Texas," Washington said. "So, there's always that sibling rivalry kind of thing going on. Even if you don't know them, you know what school they went to.

“You'll be looking down the list. ‘Oh, he went to --- Oh, OK, I know where that's at. I know where that's at. Oh, I think I played against him,' type of thing. It's always good to play against other Texas players because we're all so competitive.”

QUOTABLE

Demontre Hurst on the importance of the Red River Rivalry from a conference-standings standpoint: “It's a huge step for the rest of the season. We don't want to go down 1-2 in the conference and still want to compete for a Big 12 championship and get into the BCS game. ... It's a lot of pressure on both teams. It's going to be a battle out there. May the best team win.”
