OU spring game will match offense against defense

Oklahoma's numbers are down because of transfers, injuries and a large departing senior class. So for the first time in four years Saturday afternoon's spring game will match the offense versus the defense instead of coaches drafting two separate teams.

Oklahoma's numbers are down because of transfers, injuries and a large departing senior class. So for the first time in four years Saturday afternoon's spring game will match the offense versus the defense instead of coaches drafting two separate teams.


There will still be a winning and losing “team.”

The offense's scoring is traditional — three points for a field, six for a touchdown and one for an extra point.

The defense receives seven points for a touchdown; three for a turnover, missed field goal or fourth down stop, and two for a sack.

Coach Bob Stoops borrowed the scoring system from Boise State coach Chris Petersen.

OU's numbers will return to normal when the rest of the 25-member incoming class reports this summer.
