Oakland won the toss and deferred.
Texas with the 1st punt of the night.
Texas with a field goal attempt for 50 yards and its good, just under 8 minutes. in the first quarter. Texas 3 and Oakland 0
1st flag of the night – Unnecessary roughness on the offense. Interception.
6:16 – 1st touchdown of the night for Texas/extra point and its a 10 to 0 Texas lead.
1:01 – Oakland finally on the board/extra point its a 3 point Texas lead. 10 to 7. It was a good series thanks to a solid kick off return.
Texas has to settle for a field goal to take a 13 to 7 lead.
1:20 left int he half and Texas sneak another touchdown in/extra point extending the lead to 20 to 7.
**Halftime score sees – Texas 20 and Oakland 7
I don’t understand why Connor Cook is still out there. Oakland can do this but not with Conor directing.
(I wish I had more to tell you but when the teams are trading 3 and out, there is not much excitement)
What a crap call – offensive pass interference against Oakland.
There is a flag on the punt, roughing the kicker. (4th and 21)
Texas quarterback sneak into the end zone/extra point and the lead is extended to 27 to 7 over Oakland.
Finally at 8:10 and Oakland get to the end zone for a much-needed touchdown/ extra point – with still a glimmer of hope its 27 to 14 Texas lead.
4:32 left with Cook having a great throw but picked off by the Texas Defense.
Texas – 27 and Oakland – 14
Congrats to Oakland on a fantastic season. They will be back in the mix next year I am sure of it.
Texas moves on to face Kansas City or New England next week
