Opportunities lost

Talk all week centered on OSU's hopes for a Fiesta Bowl bid.

And while that opportunity was squandered Saturday, the pain extended beyond postseason plans for the Cowboys.

"Playing OU, that's big for our whole season," said OSU senior cornerback Perrish Cox. "Not just for us winning and going to a BCS bowl, that was big too, but just focusing on OU, that's big also."

No one on this Cowboys team has beaten the Sooners.

"We felt like we practiced well all week," said Cowboys quarterback Zac Robinson. "We felt good coming into the game. It just wasn't our day.

"They played well, they always play well at home. We knew it was going to be tough. We didn't expect it to be like this."

Injury report

Cowboys offensive tackle Brady Bond missed his fourth straight game with what has been reported as an ankle sprain.

Linebacker Donald Booker was lost in the first half against OU, with what Gundy termed "an ankle." Booker did not return, although he tested the ankle on the sideline, albeit gingerly.

Backup cornerback Andrew McGee suffered what was likely a concussion. McGee was helped from the field after the game, with a trainer on each arm.
