ASHBURN, Va. (WUSA 9) -- Oklahoma will face Texas in the Big 12 championship game. It will be a rematch of the October 6 matchup where Texas handed Oklahoma's only loss this season.
The game will have huge significance in the Redskins locker room.
Colt McCoy played his college football at Texas where he finished runner-up in the Heisman Trophy race in 2008.
Adrian Peterson, Trent Williams, Samaje Perine, and Tress Way all played for the Oklahoma Sooners.
Leading into the first matchup between the two schools this year, the Redskins produced a video where Colt McCoy approached an elevator full with the former Sooners and said he'll take the stairs.
This time Tress Way was sure to point out how good Oklahoma football has been of late.
"I would to put something out there," said the Redskins punter. "I saw a statistic that if Oklahoma wins the Big 12 championship, the senior class at Oklahoma would have more Big 12 titles than the University of Texas does at all. Wrap your head around that for a second folks. We invented championships, we're going to the championship. Congratulations, Texas made it. It's time for the Sooners to go back to work, and then on to the College Football Playoff."
Because the Redskins are in the thick of the playoff race, there is no bet between Colt McCoy and Tress Way.
"Colt's got a lot on his plate," said Way. "He's QB1 on Monday Night Football, so I'm just kinda letting him do his thing. He told me earlier in the year, 'I don't think we'd want to see Oklahoma again.' He said it, not me."
The Big 12 conference officials have told Oklahoma that flashing the "horns down" gesture will result in a penalty for taunting. Horns down is flashed by Texas opponents to mock the "horns up" celebration by Texas. We asked Tress Way if he would flash the "horns down" sign if he was playing in the Big 12 title game.
"As a punter I feel like it's my duty to get 15-yard penalties whenever it's possible, just because I'm on the field a few times a game," said the Redskins punter. "Yes, I would like to think I would. Although something crazy would have to happen. I'd have to pin one on the one-yard line. But then it would defeat the purpose because the ball would go to the 16. I don't know. I would like to think that I'm hardcore enough that I would, but I probably would be too scared."
The Longhorns face the Sooners at noon Eastern time in Arlington, Texas.
