The News-Times (Sunday) - - Sports -

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.

The Buck­eyes didn’t get a han­dle on this one un­til Hask­ins hooked up with Terry McLau­rin for a 17-yard touch­down pass early in the fourth, and then added a 30-yard scor­ing pass to Bin­ji­men Vic­tor with seven min­utes left.
