The Sooners have heard enough. Enough about Missouri's unstoppable offense. Enough about Missouri's vast improvement. And especially enough about Missouri giving away its first game with Oklahoma. The No. 1-ranked Tigers enter the Big 12 Championship game this weekend against OU with enough hype to solve the energy crisis. Hype largely coming from the Tigers themselves after the knocked off Kansas 36-28 to win the Big 12 North. And the tough-talking Tigers want another shot at the Sooners after losing the first time, 41-31. Said receiver Jeremy Maclin: "We let one slip away the last time we played Oklahoma. This time I think we'll be ready.” Said cornerback Castine Bridges: "Ever since we lost, we came into the locker room and said that we need to see them again. Now it is happening, we get to play them again.” Said quarterback Chase Daniel: "After we watched the film, we (saw we) gave the ballgame away in the fourth quarter. We were up 24-23, then self-destructed. We're a much more mature team now and we're ready.” Don't think the Sooners haven't been listening. "Hopefully we can get in their way,” defensive coordinator Brent Venables said. "Hopefully we can luck out again.” In the teams' first meeting, Missouri led 24-23 heading into the fourth quarter, but had two turnovers inside its own territory, both leading to Sooner touchdowns. "I've heard the rhetoric about their missed opportunities,” OU offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson said Sunday. "What people forget is that when we were down 24-23, we had a (12-play, 66-yard touchdown drive) to take control of the game.” What Wilson forgot to mention was that OU fumbled on its first offensive play, leading to a quick Missouri touchdown. In the rematch, the Sooners don't appear on paper to have much going for them. This time, OU will be without dynamic runner DeMarco Murray (though he was a non-factor in the first game) and possibly Big 12 sack leader Auston English, who had two sacks against the Tigers. Missouri, meanwhile, now has leading rusher Tony Temple, who sat out in Norman with an ankle injury. But perhaps OU will luck out once more. And have the star-crossed Tigers give the game away again.
