OU coach Bob Stoops says he played the percentages against Baylor

OKLAHOMA FOOTBALL — Oklahoma's coach says he was ‘playing to win' by calling a timeout late in a loss to the Bears.

On the next play, Griffin scrambled for eight more yards followed by a 12-yard pass to Kendall Wright. A game-winning TD drive culminated with a 34-yard TD pass to Terrence Williams with: 08 left.

“On the first scramble our player (in the flat) runs off to the deep middle,” Stoops said. “If he stays in the flat, he's going to be right there to come up and get him off the scramble like we had done earlier in the game. He didn't do it. That's how it goes. You take a gamble. I was playing to win.”

Was Stoops surprised Baylor coach Art Briles changed strategies?

“I was surprised,” Stoops said. “I thought he'd run it one more time and then throw it. But to be totally honest I wasn't totally surprised. In the end, we were in good coverage. (Griffin) pulls it down and our flat defender didn't stay in the flat.”
