OK, now you can say ‘Texas is back’

The Oklahoman (Sunday) - - SOONER POSTGAME - Joe Mus­satto

DAL­LAS — There was more bad than good for Ok­la­homa on Sat­ur­day at Cot­ton Bowl Sta­dium as the Longhorns topped the Soon­ers 48-45 in a Red River clas­sic.

Here’s a look at the best and worst:

The phrase has been used against Texas in re­cent years as a joke, but the Longhorns earned the sta­tus Sat­ur­day by hold­ing off the Soon­ers.

This is an ill-con­ceived com­bi­na­tion of two good things.

Full dis­clo­sure: the corn dog beer wasn’t sam­pled, but plenty of fair­go­ers were walk­ing around with glasses ad­ver­tis­ing the drink. To make things worse, or bet­ter de­pend­ing what your tastes are, the glass is rimmed with mus­tard.

An­other strange food/ drink con­coc­tion? Fried le­mon­ade.

Austin’s Cameron Dicker con­nected on a 40-yard game-win­ning field goal. He also made a 44-yarder in the first quar­ter.

It’s the open­ing song in the mu­si­cal Ok­la­homa! but it was sung by four teenage Texas fans who were headed to the game. Per­haps they didn’t know.

Af­ter the game, it was Texas fans who were still sing­ing.

Only at the fair are corn dogs and turkey legs ac­cept­able break­fast items.

It never gets old watch­ing the sta­ple foods be­ing de­voured around 8 a.m.

The fa­mous Fletcher’s added a new item this year: the cheezy pup, a corn dog with melted cheese in the cen­ter.


Texas Longhorns tight end An­drew Beck (47) wears the Golden Hat and cel­e­brates with fans af­ter de­feat­ing Ok­la­homa 48-45 in Sat­ur­day’s game at the Cot­ton Bowl in Dal­las.
