RED-ZONE OFFENSE: D

Another frustrating night inside the 20-yard line. The Sooners reached the red zone seven times and settled for four field goals and three touchdowns. That won't do against Nebraska.

KICKING GAME: B

Jimmy Stevens received a game ball for going 4-for-4 on field goals, but OU allowed Justin Gilbert's 89-yard kickoff return in the final three minutes, which kept the Cowboys in the game.

QUINTON CARTER: A

Let's see. Two interceptions and few big OSU gainers over the middle. Not a bad night for a senior safety.

SALT RUBBING: A

The Sooners not only admittedly stole the full-house backfield idea from OSU, they used it to great success. On a first-quarter touchdown drive, the Sooners used their diamond formation on the last five plays, four of which were runs and one a 25-yard completion to Ryan Broyles.

Box Score: OU, 47 - OSU, 41
