OU report card: Receivers Ryan Broyles, Jaz Reynolds have big games

The Sooners still had the occasional issue, but after the first quarter, the Tigers weren't pushing them around anymore. Credit OU for bowing up and getting after it. Giving the ball to battering rams like Dom Whaley and Trey Millard doesn't hurt either.

OU BATON TWIRLER: A+

One word: fire. Megan McGeary twirled flaming batons at halftime. Aren't we under a burn ban or something? No matter. She twirled not one, but two flaming batons at once.

DEFENSE: C

A week after one of the best defensive performances in the Stoops era, the Sooners allowed 532 yards. Tiger quarterback James Franklin had lots of open receivers while running back Henry Josey found plenty of room to roam.

IN-GAME PROMO TIMING: D-

The “Who Am I?” promotion is always fun, with baby pictures of one player acting as clues for some lucky fan contestant. But the subject on Saturday? Jimmy Stevens. On the night he didn't play, showing baby pictures to the jumbotron seemed like piling on.
