For the first time in 115 years, Red River rivals Oklahoma and Texas met twice last season when the Sooners won their fourth consecutive Big 12 championship by avenging their only regular-season loss.

It really wouldn’t be that much of a surprise if the Sooners and Longhorns again get to play a second game in the same season outside their traditional October game at the State Fair of Texas.

Texas Tech is finding its groove just in time for the home stretch of the regular season.

The Red Raiders, who had a losing record in Big 12 play less than two weeks ago, are 1½ games behind first-place Baylor after a weekend sweep against an Oklahoma State team that came in leading the league. Tech has won five straight conference games for the first time in two years and is as high as No. 11 in this week’s polls.

MINNEAPOLIS — For those who thought Texas Tech only plays defense, it’s time to meet Matt Mooney.

While the Red Raiders were locking down Michigan State on one end, the graduate transfer shooting guard was raining in 3-pointers on the other, lifting Texas Tech one win away from the title with a 61-51 victory over the Spartans in a national semifinal Saturday night.
