* Texas DE Alex Okafor on the game:

“When you can't stop the run, things get ugly real quick, and it's been like that all season.”

* Oklahoma S Tony Jefferson on the win:

“It's real fun. You're playing against your rival and it goes back so far in time. Three years in a row you get the W and you win big two years in a row.”

* Texas coach Mack Brown on new things OU's offense showed:

“Nothing. When you get a zone play for 95 yards, that's not new.”

* Texas co-offensive coordinator Bryan Harsin on the offense's struggles:

“We didn't do what we needed to do and that is the entire offense. That's coaches players, we're all in this thing together and we've got to find a way to be more successful. We've got to find a way to put points on the board. That's our job. Our job is to score points.”

* Oklahoma DB Aaron Colvin on the Sooners' strong defense:

“I think coach Mike Stoops did a great job of getting pressure on (Texas QB David Ash) and making him feel uncomfortable back there. That made our job a little easier. It allowed us to guard their receivers better.”

* Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops on the victory:

“Well it certainly ranks up there with 63-14 and 65-13; it's in the same ballpark.”
