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.
