The offense's scoring will be standard. Defense will get six points and an extra-point attempt for touchdowns, but will also get three points for fourth-down stops, missed field goals and turnovers, and will be awarded two points for sacks.
“I stole the scoring system from Coach (Chris) Petersen at Boise,” Stoops said. “He and I were talking the other day about how we do it.”
Petersen's most well-known victory, of course, came in a stunning 43-42 overtime win over Stoops' Sooners in the 2007 Fiesta Bowl.
The Spring Game is scheduled for Saturday at 2 p.m. at Gaylord Family — Oklahoma Memorial Stadium.
STOOPS TALKS WEATHER
With reports of possible severe weather, including talk of tornadoes, Stoops was asked about any contingency plans for Saturday's Spring Game.
“You see how often those guys are wrong?” Stoops asked, referring to meteorologists. “Not to offend anybody ... If I had the same percentage they've got, I wouldn't have a job.”
Stoops said if the weather does become too severe to play, the Spring Game would be canceled and the team would probably hold a private scrimmage Monday.
“(We'll play) as long as it's reasonable,” Stoops said. “We're not going to endanger kids or fans if it's anything that's bad, but otherwise we'll go at it.”
