"They said, ‘So you think it will be hard to score?’ I said, ‘Boy, I don’t know, those are two really good offenses.’”
Shootout won out, with the 80 combined points the most in the history of the storied series.
Lewis on the spot
Sooner linebacker Travis Lewis
produced a 19-tackle day, then nailed another target in playing prophet with the latest rankings.
"Losing to Texas, the No. 5 team in the nation,” Lewis said, "I think the voters are going to see that and hopefully be on our side.”
Despite the loss, OU slipped just three spots from No. 1 to No. 4.
On the bright side...
OU defensive coordinator Brent Venables
said Texas quarterback Colt McCoy’s
big day did not come at the expense of Sooner cornerbacks Brian Jackson
and Dominique Franks.
"They played well, outside of maybe one ball for each guy,” Venables said. "They’ve continued to play really well for the most part.”
