It's a blowout at the Cotton Bowl, where the Texas Longhorns are trailing 36-2 to the Oklahoma Sooners going into halftime on Saturday afternoon.

The Red River Rivalry has turned into a bloodbath for the Texas Longhorns as they trail the Oklahoma Sooners, 36-2, going into halftime on Saturday afternoon. Coming off a razor close defeat against West Virginia last week, the Longhorns can't seem to get anything working on either side of the ball heading into the second half at the Cotton Bowl.

Thirty minutes into Saturday's game, the 13th-ranked Sooners have absolutely dominated the 15th-ranked Longhorns in nearly every way. Regardless of whether you're looking at offense or defense, passing or rushing, Texas has been outclassed so far.

After scoring 45 points against the Mountaineers last week, the Longhorns have put up 65 total yards and nearly as many turnovers (two) as first downs (three). It's a stark contrast from Oklahoma's huge effort: 206 rushing yards, 201 passing yards, five touchdowns and over 20 minutes of possession.

The Longhorns' few points aren't even the result of the offense, as they came as the result of a failed extra point by the Sooners early in the first quarter. It's been all downhill from there, though, with Oklahoma piling on points in front of a packed stadium.

Sooners running back Damien Williams has been the big statistical performer in the first half with 145 rushing yards and a touchdown, but Blake Bell has certainly done his part by running in four touchdowns already as well. Between those two and a solid effort from quarterback Landry Jones, Texas has struggled to keep up.
