Texas 56,

Oklahoma State 35

Cedric Benson scored five touchdowns and Vince Young had a strong passing game to help No. 6 Texas overcame a 35-7 first-half deficit for a 56-35 win over No. 19 Oklahoma State on Saturday night.

Young passed for 278 yards and a touchdown and ran for another score, and Benson's fourth touchdown gave Texas its first lead at 42-35 early in the fourth quarter.

Benson's last touchdown, a six-yard bull rush in which he pushed four defenders across the goal line, put the exclamation point on the incredible comeback that sustained hopes for a spot in a Bowl Championship Series game for the Longhorns (8-1, 5-1 Big 12).

A little perspective on just how big of a rally it was: In 111 years of playing football, the biggest deficit the Longhorns had ever overcome to win was 19 points three seasons ago in a Holiday Bowl win over Washington.

For Oklahoma State (6-3, 3-3), it should go down as one of the most stunning losses in a long, long time.

Trailing by four touchdowns in the first half, the Longhorns scored on five straight possessions to take the lead and control.
