Vince Young and the Texas Longhorns went home from the State Fair with the prize that has eluded them for five years: a victory over Oklahoma.

Showing the poise and leadership he's developed since a miserable performance against the Sooners last year, Young threw for three touchdowns in guiding No. 2 Texas (5-0, 2-0 Big 12) to a 45-12 victory Saturday.

The Sooners (2-3, 1-1) came in not only riding their longest series winning streak since the 1950s but having outscored the Longhorns 189-54 along the way. Young, who led an 82-yard touchdown drive on the opening series, finished 14-of-17 for 241 yards with no interceptions and ran for 45 yards. Freshman Jamaal Charles had 116 yards on nine carries. Billy Pittman caught four passes for 100 yards.

Adrian Peterson, who had 225 yards against Texas last year, was plagued by a sprained ankle and ran three times for 10 yards. The Sooners ran for only 77 yards.
