A blowout win that was hard to fathom just a few weeks ago came to fruition for head coach Steve Sarkisian and Texas football over new head coach Brent Venables and the Oklahoma Sooners on Oct. 8. Texas got the win over Oklahoma in the Red River Rivalry game at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas by the final score of 49-0.

Sark and the Longhorns started to let off the gas a little bit in the fourth quarter when they were up by more than 40 points over the Sooners. But Texas dominated this game through and through, winning every single quarter by at least one touchdown.

Texas got up early in this game, scoring on each of the first three offensive drives. This was exactly what the Longhorns faithful were hoping for, and more, upon the return of redshirt freshman quarterback Quinn Ewers.

Ewers returned for Red River for his first start for the Longhorns since suffering a clavicle sprain on his non-throwing shoulder against the Alabama Crimson Tide on Sep. 10. And he was tremendous for the Longhorns in this game.

He finished up this game with more than 300 total yards (including 289 passing yards), four passing touchdowns, and one interception.

Social media reacts to Texas football bashing OU in Red River

Here’s a look at some of the fan reactions on social media to this 49-0 shutout win for Texas in a complete dismantling of the Sooners on Oct. 8.

There were plenty of Lincoln Riley memes and jokes on Twitter during this game.

This was a tremendous record-breaking win for the Longhorns over the Sooners.

Even the Longhorn basketball legend Kevin Durant jumped into the bashing of Venables and the Sooners this weekend.

The Cotton Bowl definitely emptied out in the fourth quarter on the OU side. Who can blame them, though, when they’re down by more than 40 points?

This was truly a massive win for the Longhorns over the Sooners. Oklahoma continues its downward spiral with three straight double-digit losses to open up Big 12 play in the first year under Venables.
