"All of a sudden, you hit a couple home runs, and your stats are skewed.”

Sooner theories vary on what has been the problem.

Lendy Holmes: "We haven’t been disciplined all the time. Couldn’t get off our blocks or run through the wrong gap. Hopefully, it’ll be better in this game.”

Dom Franks: "Guys trying to do too much. Giving guys shoulders on blocks.”

Travis Lewis: "When this team really puts its mind to it on special teams, we rise to the challenge.”

Lewis points out that OU held Missouri speedster Jeremy Maclin in check in the Big 12 title game.

Florida speedster Brandon James has a big reputation, but he ranks just 58th nationally, with 23.7 yards per return.

"He’s a great player,” Franks said, "but we have also faced a lot of great players in the Big 12. We’re just going to have to be prepared, be physical and make a tackle.”
