The first quarter consisted of a battle of the field goals. Oklahoma got on the board first, making it 3-0 early after the first drive. Oklahoma started out with a couple red zone issues, keeping it only 6-3 early on. Second quarter opened the flood gates. Oklahoma scored in the first couple seconds of the second quarter with a beautiful touchdown pass from Sooner QB Landry Jones to Kenny Stills to make the score 13-3.
Once the Sooners got rolling, the game was out of the Longhorns control. Oklahoma scored the first 4 times they had possession and the defense was swarming around the Longhorn offense like it was shark bait. (In case you didn’t know, the Sooner defense have dubbed themselves the sharks this season) The Sooners broke a school record of defensive touchdowns scored in a game, with 3.
Oklahoma held the Longhorns to only one offensive touchdown… the entire game. Their only other touchdown came off a 100 yard kickoff return by Fozzy Whitaker. A case of the rookie QB’s also haunted the Horns as Case McCoy fumbled the ball twice, and David Ash threw two interceptions.
Going into the half, the Sooners were up by 24 and continued the momentum throughout. Making it impossible for the Longhorns to recover. They were out-played, out-coached and completely out of their element. This Longhorn team is young, and in a couple years will be outstanding. This year, like last year, isn’t going to be the return of the Mack (Brown).
There was one point in the game that the Oklahoma defense had the Longhorns in a 4th and 49 situation. Talk about being in over your head. The Sooner defense also had 8 sacks, 3 coming from Frank Alexander and 2 from Ronnell Lewis. During the middle of the 3rd quarter, the burnt orange half of the field started leaving in herds. They serve beer right outside the Cotton Bowl doors at the state fair, just saying.
Landry Jones and company were defintely trying to make a case to pollsters on where they should be ranked. The Sooners were ready for the Longhorns and this team wanted it more. The Sooners are playing with more determination and heart then ive seen out of one their squads in a long time. And this Sooner D has quickly turned into one of my all time favorites.
