Following a 49-21 victory over No. 18 Oklahoma State on Saturday, No. 7 Texas Football claimed the conference’s latest football title.

It became the team’s fourth Big 12 trophy and first since 2009.

In front of a record-breaking attendance of 84,523 packed inside the AT&T Stadium, Texas (12-1) didn’t waste time to score.

Adonai Mitchell and Quinn Ewers connected for a 10-yard scoring completion for Texas Football.

It was Mitchell’s 10th touchdown on the season, putting him at the sixth on the program’s single-season list.

Ewers, who became the Most Outstanding Player of the Match, sent a 24-yard pass to Ja’Tavion Sanders to change the score to 14-0.

Texas ballooned their lead to three touchdowns after CJ Baxter created a 10-yard scoring gallop in the second quarter.

Ewers set a career high by throwing for 452 yards and created four touchdowns, one of those to defensive tackle T’Vondre Sweat.

He completed 35 of 46 passes and his TDs went to four different receivers. Brett Yormark, the Big 12 Commissioner, said that the Texas Longhorns would deserve consideration for a playoff spot.

Before the game against Texas Football, Oklahoma State won seven of eight last games to get their second Big 12 title in three years.

But Texas successfully scored on their first four possessions and it just killed the Cowboys.
