Over at Football Study Hall I broke down a three and out where I believe Houston established the tone for the game. Check it out here.
Every time I go to media days I'm always a little surprised to hear opposing players talk up Oklahoma as the biggest, baddest dog on the block. After all, Texas has physically beaten up the Sooners in the last three Red River Shootouts (losing one thanks to special teams and turnovers) and Clemson has smashed them up in the last few bowl games.
Seeing Houston beat them down was further confirmation that this Sooner team isn't quite the intimidatingly physical team that the Big 12 makes them appear to be at times.
