Oklahoma football is as proud of a program as any. They are 5th all-time in wins and have more conference championships than anyone else with a whopping 50. They’ve had recent success, too, having made the College Football Playoff four times.

But, this year’s Sooner football team is not so good. After a 3-0 start including a blowout of Nebraska, OU lost two in a row to Kansas State and TCU. But, they had a chance to turn it around on Saturday in the Red River Shootout against rival texas. They did not, in fact, turn it around.

Texas Beat Oklahoma 49-0 in the worst shutout loss in Oklahoma history

That’s a shocking scoreline, and somehow that scoreline doesn’t even do it justice. Texas outgained the Sooners 585-195 in a game that was just an absolute romp in every facet. The Longhorns did whatever they wanted to Oklahoma in all three phases, and embarrassed them in historic fashion. It is the worst shutout loss in the history of Oklahoma Sooners football.

There were plenty of embarrassing moments for OU, too. Chief among them is this jump pass that did not go to plan. Anytime you can have a running back jump pass, you’ve gotta do it.

It was that kind of day for the Sooners.

It was an all-time great Twitter meltdown by Sooner fans

Of course, Twitter was full of despondent OU fans.

Message Board Geniuses was full of hilarious fans complaining about OU coach Brent Venables.

Even Texas alum Kevin Durant got in on the Venables bashing.

Some OU fans are defending Venables, saying he was left a bare cupboard when Lincoln Riley left and some players transferred with him. But, that’s just not true. They’re ranked ninth in the country in team talent ranking by 247 sports

This is the correct take, Sooner fans.

For me, this will be the lasting image of this year’s Red River Shootout.

Texas improves to 4-2 and is very much in the thick of the Big 12 race. Oklahoma falls to 3-3 and 0-3 in the Big 12.
