Here's a look at what players and coaches were saying after OU's 55-17 win over Texas:

* OU linebacker Tom Wort: “Those guys are young and talented, but it was their first time to face a defense as fast and physical as us. From the start, we were trying to get pressure on them and dictate the game.”

* Texas coach Mack Brown: “We don't have enough time to feel sorry for ourselves. Oklahoma State throws it like this bunch.”

* Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones: “I can miss a throw every once in a while and they're going to make the play on it.”

* Texas defensive coordinator Manny Diaz: “In the second quarter, (Jones) caught fire. We knew that the whole key would be getting him off his rhythm and for about 20 minutes there, we didn't get him off his rhythm and he made us pay.”

* Oklahoma defensive end Ronnell Lewis: “They've got a good offensive line, don't get me wrong. But we felt like we were more physical and just wanted it more today.”

* Texas safety Blake Gideon: “They've got all the athletes and stats for a reason. Good receivers, good quarterback and a great offensive line protecting them.”

* Texas quarterback David Ash: “You can't turn the ball over. We can't put our defense in that kind of situation. Our defense played hard and they fought, but whenever you give them 21 points, it's going to be a tough game.”
