COLUMBIA, Mo. — The Sooners have flopped in the fourth quarter all season.
Saturday night at Faurot Field, it finally cost them.
Again, Oklahoma took a lead into the fourth quarter, but this time couldn't hold on, as Missouri knocked off the top-ranked Sooners, 36-27.
OU took its first lead of the night when Landry Jones found tight end James Hanna in the back of the end zone to put the Sooners up 21-20 with 2:48 left in the third quarter.
But from there, it was all Tigers.
Missouri's Blaine Gabbert answered with a touchdown strike to Jerrell Jackson, who bounced off Jonathan Nelson's missed tackle before dashing in for a 38-yard touchdown.
The first play of OU's ensuing drive, Jones was intercepted by Zaviar Gooden, which led to a Missouri field goal.
Then after the Sooners went three-and-out, Missouri scored again on a three-yard touchdown by James Franklin to give the Tigers a 36-21 lead with just over 6 minutes to play.
â€œAs a team, (the fourth quarter) is when you need to get it rolling,â€ OU coach Bob Stoops said. â€œWe didn't do that.â€
