TAPPER LEARNS LESSONS

After serving a half-game suspension against Iowa State following a second-half ejection against Baylor, Sooners defensive end Charles Tapper says he's learned a lesson.

“Keep my head,” Tapper said. “Stay focused and just play the game and don't let people get the other side to come out of me.”

Tapper has been one of the most consistent defensive linemen for the Sooners this season and has 41 tackles and 4.5 sacks.

STRIKER REMEMBERS 2011

Sooners linebacker Eric Striker wasn't part of the team in 2011 when Oklahoma State blew out OU 44-10 in Stillwater.

But that doesn't mean Striker doesn't have bad memories of that game.

Striker was committed to the Sooners at the time.

“I was at Hooters, I remember that,” Striker said. “I had my buddies in there. They were like, ‘Oh, look at your team.' It wasn't a good day.”
