— 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.

“As a team, (the fourth quarter) is when you need to get it rolling,” OU coach Bob Stoops said. “We didn't do that.”
