Oklahoma football: Sooners' fullback Trey Millard putting off NFL Draft, coming back for senior season

The Sooners have 11 defensive commitments so far for the 2013 class, including defensive tackles Quincy Russell and Kerrick Huggins.

Russell is a junior college player who has already signed and might be able to step in quickly. Huggins recently switched his commitment from Texas A&M.

OU has two linebackers on board for the 2013 recruiting class — Dallas Jesuit's Jordan Mastrogiovanni and Norman North's Jordan Evans.

THE LONG ROAD

Oklahoma didn't do things very quickly in the first half.

The Sooners' three scoring drives — a touchdown and a pair of field goals — averaged more than 15 plays and longer than 6:05.

The second field-goal drive, which stretched over the first and second quarters, lasted 18 plays and 7:34.

The drive was the longest in both plays and time for the Sooners this season and was the longest drive in Cotton Bowl history which ended in a field goal.

AGGIES JUMP OUT QUICKLY

After winning the coin toss and deciding to take the ball, Texas A&M needed less than three minutes to take the lead.

For the Aggies, it was the 18th consecutive game scoring first.

The last time Texas A&M's opponent scored first was Oct. 29, 2011 at Missouri when the Tigers scored a first-quarter touchdown and went on to beat A&M 38-31 in overtime.

Texas A&M hadn't given up any first-quarter points since Oct. 6 against Ole Miss.

Including Friday's game, the Aggies outscored their opponents 120-3 in the first quarter over their final eight games.
