th passes were tipped and floated to Wolfe, who returned them for a total of 61 yards.

Until the end of the game, Saturday was a happy homecoming of sorts for Wolfe. He lived in the Colorado Springs area until moving to Lawton prior to his sophomore year of high school.

Brown returns: After suffering a concussion in the fourth quarter last week at Tulsa, tailback Chris Brown returned to action Saturday.

He entered on OU's third offensive series. For the game, he carried once for no gain.

•Keep fumbling: OU struggled to move the ball on the ground in the first quarter, rushing five times for one yard.

The Sooners' longest ground gain in the first quarter came when tailback Allen Patrick fumbled a handoff forward and fell on it for a two-yard gain.

Out wide: Offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson likes to toy with opponents by emphasizing the versatility some of his players offer.

That was evident on the Sooners' first drive Saturday, when running back DeMarco Murray and tight end Jermaine Gresham each lined up as a wide receiver on consecutive plays.

With Gresham lined up wide, Wilson added another wrinkle by using tight end Brody Eldridge as a fullback. So while Colorado saw two OU tight ends in the huddle, no players lined up as tight ends in the formation.
