Lincoln Riley not worrying about Texas being back after Oklahoma upset

Lincoln Riley

Oklahoma Sooners coach Lincoln Riley isn’t sweating the fact that the Texas Longhorns made what may look to be a statement of intent against his team on Saturday.

The Longhorns won 48-45 on a late field goal, lifting them ahead of the Sooners into a tie atop the Big 12. It was also viewed by some as a pronunciation that Texas is back as a national power, perhaps at the expense of Oklahoma, who are the reigning three-time champions.

Riley wasn’t having that line of thinking. In his mind, the Sooners can remain a national power no matter what Texas does.

It’s worth noting this is not the first time Texas has been “back” this season. Keeping the consistency going will be vital for them. Riley is also right, though, as the Sooners aren’t going anywhere.
