The rematch is living up to the hype.

The Oklahoma Sooners’ offense finally came alive at the end of the first half to take a 20-14 lead on the Texas Longhorns in the Big 12 Championship game at AT&T Stadium.

Kyler Murray hit Grant Calcaterra for a six-yard pass with 18 seconds left in the half.

The Longhorns led 14-6 for much of the half behind two rushing touchdowns from quarterback Sam Ehlinger. But Murray and the Sooners scored two touchdowns in the final 5:01.

Ehlinger scored on a 16-yard run to cap the Longhorns’ 75-yard drive on their first possession to take a 7-0 lead. The Sooners cut it to 7-6 with a pair of field goals from Austin Seibert. The second one came early in the second quarter. The three first-quarter points for Oklahoma were a season low. The previous low output was seven points against Texas on Oct. 6.

Murray connected with CeeDee Lamb on a 28-yard touchdown pass to pull Oklahoma to within 14-13 with 5:01 left in the half. The score capped an 87-yard, six-play drive. The scoring drive started with a 46-yard completion to Lamb that put the Sooners on the Texas’ 41.

The Sooners hadn’t scored fewer than 17 points (Oct. 6 vs. Texas) in the first half this season.

There were 10 penalties, including eight by Texas, for a total of 93 yards, which along with multiple replay reviews, contributed to a slow pace in the first half.
