Centre Daily Times (Sunday) - - Sports -

Kyler Mur­ray threw for 379 yards and three touch­downs as No. 5 Ok­la­homa beat No. 9 Texas 39-27 in the Big 12 cham­pi­onship game Satur­day, with the Soon­ers aveng­ing their only loss and mak­ing their case for a re­turn to the Col­lege Foot­ball Play­off.

Mur­ray, the Heis­man Tro­phy-con­tend­ing du­althreat quar­ter­back, threw two of his TDs to Grant Cal­caterra. That in­cluded an im­pres­sive 18-yard score on a third-and-10 play with two min­utes left as the Soon­ers (12-1, No. 5 CFP) won their sev­enth con­sec­u­tive game de­spite be­ing held to fewer than 40 points for the first time in nine games.

Sam Eh­linger was 23of-36 pass­ing for 349 yards with two touch­downs, and he also ran for two scores for Texas (9-4), but his fi­nal pass was picked off by Tre Nor­wood at the 1 in the fi­nal minute.
