OSU-OU: Halftime thoughts, notes and stats from Bedlam
Oklahoma State and OU are tied 24-24 at halftime in Norman. Here’s some thoughts, notes and stats:
- It was a tale of two quarters. Oklahoma State won the first 14-3 and OU won the second 21-10.
- Michael Hunnicutt’s 32-yard missed field goal, which was preceded by a strange Belldozer call and drive stall, sucked the wind out of OU and its crowd early. After trading three-and-outs, OSU then scored the game’s first points and seized control.
- And Landry Jones only added to the Sooners’ early troubles, tossing an errant and inexcusable interception minutes later. Under pressure, Jones floated one to OSU linebacker Lyndell Johnson, who ran it back into the red zone, setting up Joseph Randle’s second touchdown and OSU’s 14-0 lead.
- Jones came back with a trio of nice drives, vaulting OU right back in it. And overall, he looked good and his stats look better (292 passing yards and three touchdowns), but that early interception may loom large late. And if he’s not able to avoid another careless mistake, his senior season could be defined by three home losses riddled with big stats but costly turnovers.
- For OSU, the momentum changer was a strange onside kick call.
