2010: Texas squeaked by with a one-point victory over Oklahoma – final score 13-12. Defense and mistakes were the deciding factors in the game. Each team had two turnovers and a blocked punt with Texas blocking its own punt and taking a safety on a bad snap, resulting in Oklahoma’s lead at half time 9-7. Ronnie Price from Broken Arrow had a 61-yard return on the game’s first punt with Joseph Aska from Edmond North finally taking it in for the touchdown. Aska led Oklahoma with 47 rushing yards. Texas scored a touchdown before they even made a first down. The Offensive Most Valuable Player of the game was Seth Garza from Bowie. He hicked a pair of 28-yard field goals that made the difference in the game. Teddy Johnson from Coppell was the game’s Defensive Most Valuable Player with a sack and forcing a fumble that set up the deciding field goal. Another Texas stand-out was Wichita Falls HIgh School’s Eddie Aboussie with a team-high 41 yards on six carries and he caught two passes for 15 yards. Texas has now increased its series lead to 45-18-1
2011: History was made in 2011 as the Oil Bowl had its first overtime game. Argyle’s Chad Hedlund kicked a 39-yard field goal in OT for 17-14 win, but only after the Texas defense forced three Oklahoma turnovers and came up with a critical safety. Texas won the game despite not leading in the second half and missing both of its extra-point attempts — one on a block and another because of a bad snap. Oklahoma managed to survive a couple turnovers early, but its last one on the first play of overtime proved the costliest. Kingfisher quarterback Derek Patterson fumbled after a hit from DeSoto’s Brandon Mullins pounded on it. Oklahoma’s bad snap from its own 9-yard line gave Texas a safety that cut Oklahoma’s lead to 14-8 with 6:06 to play. Texas hadn’t sniffed the red zone before then, but it took over on Oklahoma’s 43-yard line after the free kick and a late-hit penalty. Iowa Park’s Lee Cubb broke several tackles in gaining 23 yards after catching a short fourth-and-6 pass from the 39. That led to a 4-yard touchdown fun by Mexia’s Doug Gentry, but Texas missed the PAT, causing overtime. Before Gentry’s TD run, all of Texas points had been produced by the defense. Stephen Sanders (Mesquite Horn)picked off a screen pass and sprinted 69 yards for a first-quarter touchdown. Guthrie’s 6-6 receiver Devante McCully caught two deep passes that set up two Oklahoma touchdowns. After a 38-yard McCully catch, Oklahoma scored a 21- yard TD pass from Elk City’s Will Davis to Lawton’s Tyrequek Zimmerman. That gave Oklahoma a 7-6 halftime lead. A 45-yard reception by McCully late in the third quarter led to Zimmerman’s 39-yard touchdown on third-and-30.
