Horns Talk: Loss to Oklahoma Sooners “will test our mettle" says Texas Longhorns head coach Steve Sarkisian

On Saturday, the Texas Longhorns had a devastating loss to the Oklahoma Sooners in the Red River Showdown 55-48. 

Although the Longhorns led 28-7 at one point, the Sooners stormed back, making play after play to eventually take the lead and win the game. The Sooners put up 370 yards in the second half, propelling them to their 10th win in the last 13 matchups of the series.

Looking ahead, head coach Steve Sarkisian expressed that “big picture-wise, this will test our mettle."

Now, let's hear the Horns talk:

Sark on the Longhorns moving on from the loss to OU: “Nobody is feeling sorry for us the way we lost that game, so we don’t have time to feel sorry for ourselves.”

Sark on the team’s lack of mental intensity: “I feel like we got a little of it there on the offensive line.”
