On October 9, 2004, Adrian Peterson delivered a sensational performance in the Red River Rivalry, leading the Oklahoma Sooners to a 12-0 victory over the Texas Longhorns. The freshman running back dominated the game, rushing for 225 yards on 32 carries against a stout Texas defense. Peterson's relentless running and ability to break tackles were on full display, as he consistently gained crucial yards to keep the Sooners' offense moving. His effort not only secured Oklahoma's fifth consecutive win over Texas but also solidified his status as one of the most dynamic and promising players in college football.
