MORGANTOWN, W. Va. — With a Gatorade towel wrapped around his head, Oklahoma wide receiver Kenny Stills looked toward the sky and then dropped his arms to his chest and crossed himself.

In the second half, OU let WVU's Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey rack up yards, but the fourth quarter proved to be a shootout.
“We didn't want it to be a close game but it happens like that sometimes,” King said. “Offense saved us today. They made plays. We couldn't stop them.”
This week, King watched the Sooners' 2007-08 Fiesta Bowl matchup vs. West Virginia, which OU lost 48-28. Even though he wasn't part of that team, King wanted to make sure it didn't happen again.
As the game clock hit zero, Shead ran with a limp along the sideline and yelled “How do you like me now?” no OU fan had to worry about that 2008 feeling coming back.
The Sooners jumped and hugged as Stills stood on the sideline just smiling from beneath his towel.
“It feels great to come out on top of a game like that,” Stills said. “It hurts when you lose games like that so it feels really good right now.”
As the field began to clear, Stills was one of the last Sooners to walk toward the tunnel beneath the Oklahoma fan section. He walked with a straight face until the crowd began to roar. Then he smiled and raised one finger to the air as he disappeared into the tunnel.
