MEMORIAL STADIUM -
  1. Landry Jones’s 68 yard touchdown pass to Kenny Stills wasn’t just the longest reception of Stills’ career, it was also the longest play from scrimmage for OU since Nov. 27, 2010. Jones found Cameron Kenney on that day in a game against Oklahoma State for a 86-yard spiral for a touchdown.
  2. In the fourth quarter, JUCO transfer Damien Williams had a 65-yard run for a touchdown. That’s the longest for a Sooner since DeMarco Murray went 70 yards against Texas A&M back in 2008.
  3. Punter Tress Way booted seven punts against the Miners. The senior had three punts for 50 or more yards — 54, 52 and 50. He now has 61 punts for 50-yards or more in his career.
  4. OU’s opening drive of the 2012 season was a punt blocked for a touchdown. That’s the first time  for an OU opponent since Sept. 7, 2002 and Alabama’s Lance Taylor.
