Heisman campaign
A30-of-44 passing for Sam Bradford, 370 yards, a trampoline vault to set up a touchdown that will make all highlight tapes. Hard to ask for more.

BCS campaign
BSooners set the bar high against Texas Tech. A 20-point win is very impressive, but the game was closer than that.

Offensive line
BBradford was not sacked but had to scramble some. And though tailbacks Chris Brown and DeMarco Murray combined for 171 yards on 34 carries, the territory was hard to come by.

Pass rush
BThe pressure was excellent. The containment was not. Zac Robinson scrambled free much of the night. But two big sacks late turned the tide.

Kickoff coverage
CSounds crazy, a C on a night when OSU’s Perrish Cox returned a kick 90 yards for a touchdown. But the Cowboys returned eight other kickoffs for just 138 yards and generally did not have good field position.

Gambles
ABob Stoops went 2-for-2 on fourth-down conversions, getting touchdowns on both plays from the 1-yard line. A Bradford sneak and a Bradford pass. Good idea, putting the ball in Bradford’s hands.
