Dicker’s kick lifts Texas
DALLAS — Freshman Cameron Dicker kicked a 40-yard field goal with nine seconds left to give 19thranked Texas a 48-45 victory Saturday over No. 7 Oklahoma after Kyler Murray had rallied the Sooners with three touchdowns in the fourth quarter.
Sam Ehlinger ran for three touchdowns and threw for 314 yards with two more scores for Texas (5-1, 3-0 Big 12), which has its first five-game winning streak since 2013. The sophomore quarterback converted third-and-3 on Texas’ final drive with a 4-yard keeper and his 8-yard draw to the middle of the field set up the kick.
The Longhorns took a 45-24 lead into the fourth quarter before Murray threw a 19-yard TD pass to Lee Morris and ran 67 yards for a score on a oneplay drive. Trey Sermon’s 7-yard run for the tying touchdown with 2:38 left gave the Sooners three TDs in a span of six minutes.
Oklahoma (5-1, 2-1), the three-time defending Big 12 champion, lost to the Longhorns for the third time in six seasons. This was the first time in that span Texas was ranked for the Red River Rivalry.
NO. 1 ALABAMA 65, ARKANSAS 31
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Tua Tagovailoa passed for 334 yards and four touchdowns as 1 Alabama ran its winning streak against Arkansas to 12 straight.
It took just one play for Alabama (6-0, 3-0 SEC) to set the tone as Tagovailoa hit tight end Irv Smith Jr. on a pass across the middle that Smith took 76 yards to the end zone and a 7-0 lead just 21 seconds into the game.
NO. 3 OHIO STATE 49, INDIANA 26
COLUMBUS, Ohio — Dwayne Haskins Jr. passed for a career-best 455 yards and six touchdowns and Ohio State pulled away in the fourth quarter.
A week after a gritty victory at Penn State, the Buckeyes were forced to work hard by quarterback Peyton Ramsey and an Indiana offense that took advantage of plenty of early defensive mistakes.
