Oklahoma Game Summaries The Oklahoma Sooners bounced back a week after a devastating overtime loss to rival Texas in the Red River Shootout to collect their second Big XII win with a 31-16 win over the Kansas Jayhawks. The Sooners were led by Player of the Game tailback DeMarco Murray and tight end Jermaine Gresham. Murray carried the ball 30 times for 167 yards and 2 touchdowns. Gresham hauled in 6 passes for 100 yards and a touchdown. Oklahoma started off a little sluggish and looked to be suffering from an emotional hangover after last weeks huge disappointment and trailed at the half 10-7. After a spirited halftime talk in the lockeroom, the Sooners came to life in the second half outscoring the Jayhawks 14-0 in the 3rd quarter on a 13-yard touchdown reception by Gresham and a 1 yard touchdown run by Mossis Madu. 3 minutes into the fourth quarter, Murray put the game away on a 15 yard touchdown run, his second of the day. His first was a 56-yard scamper off the right tackle 15 seconds after Kansas opened the scoring on the first play of the 2nd quarter. Sam Bradford completed 12 of 21 passes on the day for 223 yards, 1 touchdown, and 2 picks. Sophomore receiver Jameel Owens added 96 yards on 4 catches. Jeremy Beal led the defense with 12 tackles, including 1 for a loss. Oklahoma was able to pull out the victory, despite being dominated in most statistical categories for the game. The Jayhawks had 4 more first downs, gained 9 more yards, and forced 3 turnovers, while the Sooners couldn't force 1. Oklahoma will now root for Oklahoma State next week when they square off against the Texas Longhorns as they try to claw their way back to a Big XII South title. It looks to be an uphill battle the rest of the way for the Sooners who can't afford any more slip ups in a season that had a lot more promise before last week's Red River Shootout.
