Red-zone offense: B. The Sooners penetrated the OSU 20-yard line nine times and produced five touchdowns and two field goals. Michael Hunnicut missed a 32-yard field goal and Trey Millard lost a fumble at the OSU 14. That's a C grade, except the Sooners get extra credit for clutch. With the game on the line, they bulled the ball into the end zone — Blake Bell's fourth-down touchdown with four seconds left to forge a tie, and the overtime touchdown off back-to-back running plays.
Honoring history: A. OU showed a video tribute to the late Bob Barry Sr., who has been voted the National Football Foundation's Chris Schenkel Award. As a classy gesture, the tribute did not omit Barry's 18 years as the radio voice of the Cowboys.
Hands: B. The Sooner receivers were mostly spectacular — three 100-yard passcatchers, and Justin Brown in particular made some spiffy catches. But normally sure-handed Kenny Stills had three drops and almost dropped another before tipping the ball to himself for a second-quarter touchdown.
Aaron Colvin: A. Burned at West Virginia, Colvin impacted Bedlam even though the Cowboys clearly stayed clear from throwing at the OU cornerback. Colvin had an interception, a pass breakup and two sacks, off Mike Stoops blitzes.
Stoops defense: D. Mike Stoops' unit gave up 45 regulation points and 490 total yards to OSU. But that wasn't even the biggest defensive crime in the Stoops family on Saturday. Mark Stoops' Florida State defense gave up 37 points to offensively-challenged Florida, in a 37-26 defeat.
