Halftime observations: Oklahoma 13, Florida State 3
TALLY, Fla. –Strange first half. Quick first half, though I’m at risk of causing a three-hour second half by saying that. Anything’s better than OSU-Tulsa, evidently. Sounds like bad weather might delay that already late start.
Most impressive in first half: OU’s opening drive. I thought, if Sooners wound up getting ball first, it would be critical for them to grab momentum on the first possession. But, boy, OU roared down the field and looked physically dominant doing on so a 15-play drive that ate up 6:25 to begin the game. The stadium, rocking before the game, was stunned into silence. But OU has not looked like that since then.
Least impressive in first half: OU not finishing drives inside 5-yard line. We saw Sooners whiff on their first scoring drive of the season. Happening again here tonight. You don’t want to see Jimmy Stevens field goals from 21 and 29 yards. That means you should have gotten seven points. OU would line up in I-formation and try to power in with Dominique Whaley, but it was all telegraphed. FSU’s front seven would bow, occasionally on a run blitz, and OU was twice held to two field goals. Could be costly. Maybe not, but could be.
