DALLAS (AP) — Spencer Rattler threw a 25-yard scoring pass to Drake Stoops in the fourth overtime, and Oklahoma survived a late rally from No. 22 Texas in regulation for a 53-45 victory as a most unusual version of the Red River rivalry ended with familiar dose of drama. Rattler’s successful completion on the required 2-point conversion didn’t matter when Sam Ehlinger’s pass was intercepted in the end zone by Tre Brown to end just the second Big 12 game to go four OTs. Because of the pandemic, the crowd was limited to 24,000 in the 93,000-seat Cotton Bowl.
