OU running back DeMarco Murray
"We've put ourselves in a good position to be able to make it to the Big 12 (title) game like we have the past few years. They have a chance to make it as well. It's going to be a good game. They have a lot riding on the line and so do we."
Former coach John Mackovic
â€œHas the huge investment by T. Boone Pickens finally paid off for the Cowboys, who can advance to the conference championship game for the first time? The Sooners have been a disappointment most of the season and may go through the motions. All the emotion and incentives are with OSU.â€
The Cowboys will have some success pressuring (Landry) Jones into some poor reads/errant throws without the threat of a consistent ground game to keep them honest. Meanwhile, (Kendall) Hunter should fare better and take some pressure off Weeden.â€ Cowboys 35, Sooners 31.
OU defensive coordinator Brent Venables
"What is (Brandon Weeden), 30 years old? He's very talented. How many rounds are there in baseball? Forty. He was a high draft pick. He's a very good athlete. He didn't just show up off a turnip truck."
OU offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson
"It matches up where if both teams play well it should be a heck of a game. Whether it's high scoring or low scoring it should to be a lot of fun."
