10-9-04- Adrian Peterson decided to go to Oklahoma instead of Texas partly because of the way the Sooners always handle the Longhorns.
This time, he was the reason for it. Oklahoma came out on top of Texas for the fifth time in a row, winning 12-0.
In just his fifth college game, Peterson ran for 225 yards and made many big plays when Number Two Oklahoma needed it most, helping the Sooners grind out a 12-0 victory over Number Five Texas. It stretches their winning streak in the storied rivalry to five straight.
The Longhorns avoided getting blown out, but still suffered some stinging embarrassment -- getting shut out for the first time in 282 games, ending the longest streak in the country.
