“It felt real good, knowing my family was here,” Metoyer said. “I'm playing in front of 85,000 people for the first time. Hopefully I've got more to come.”
In the season opener last week at UTEP, he had one foot out of bounds on what originally appeared to be a long touchdown grab.
Metoyer originally signed with OU in February 2011, but academic issues forced him to spend last fall at Hargrave Military Academy in Virginia.
STILLS GETTING COMFORTABLE
Kenny Stills had 120 yards on 10 catches for his second consecutive 120-yard plus performance.
The junior said he's getting more used to the slot role that has helped him put up big numbers so far.
“I wouldn't say I like it more than anything,” Stills said. “I love being on the outside, but it's working.”
Last season, when Ryan Broyles went down with an injury, Stills struggled to become Landry Jones' go-to receiver.
“I felt like before with Ryan being the guy, I couldn't really just express myself as the guy to get the ball,” Stills said. “I tell him all the time now that I'm open.
“I've been working my tail off with him just to let him know that I'm going to work as hard as I can to get the ball.”
Stills' 100-yard receiving game was his fifth as a Sooner.
63 SOONERS SEE ACTION
Last week against Savannah State, Oklahoma State used more than 90 players in a blowout win over Savannah State.
The Sooners used far fewer than that Saturday in a 69-13 win over Florida A&M, with 63 players seeing action.
The number included a handful of first-year players in addition to those getting regular playing time. Freshman wide receiver Durron Neal and cornerback Gary Simon were among those who played in the second half.
Backup defensive tackle Jordan Phillips time was limited last week against UTEP but played much more Saturday night and drew praise from Stoops in his postgame remarks.
JONES MOVING UP
With 252 yards, Sooners quarterback Landry Jones moved into 11th place in NCAA career passing yards.
Jones, who was 19 of 28 with an interception, passed Louisiana Tech's Luke McCown and Tim Rattay and San Diego State's Ryan Lindley.
He's now 52 yards behind Central Michigan's Dan LeFevour for 10th place.
Javon Harris' late first-quarter interception was the fourth of his career. ... Florida A&M called timeouts before each of its first two drives. ... Freshman Taylor McNamara started at tight end. Geneo Grissom, coming off a one-game suspension, made his first appearance early in the second quarter.
