Match 22: Texas 28, Oklahoma 19

The Red River Rivalry moved to the Delaware River Saturday evening, with the Texas Longhorns besting the Oklahoma Sooners by the final score of 28-19. The win places the Longhorns in the championship bracket as the second seed from Pool C.

Texas opened the scoring with a try and conversion from Taylor Hayes one minute in to the match. The Sooners tied it up on the next possession with Bradley Henry pushing in for a try but a missed conversion kept the Longhorns in front. Texas then struck right back and the Longhorns took a 19-5 lead in to the half.

Texas would extend their lead to 28-5 before the Sooners started to put together some late pressure. Bradley Henry’s try in the eleven minute mark and Bobby Impson’s conversion was followed up by Michael Al-Jiboori’s try and another Impson conversion to cut the Texas lead to 28-19 late, but the Longhorns were able to work some clock and hold off their usual Big 12 rivals.

With the win, Texas moves in to the championship bracket as the Pool C two-seed. Their opponent will be determined following the conclusion of round robin play in Pool D. The Sooners will also have to wait to learn their opponent in the challenger’s bracket, although Notre Dame looks to be the most likely opponent.
