NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Jordan Woodard scored 11 of his 13 points in the second half, and No. 17 Oklahoma rallied for a 71-69 win over Texas on Tuesday night.

Buddy Hield scored 12 points and Dinjiyl Walker and Frank Booker each added 10 for the Sooners (18-8, 9-5 Big 12), who trailed by seven with 6:33 to play.
