Oklahoma took the early lead on a 55 yard field goal by Tress Way. The second quarter saw MSU get their only offensive touchdown on the day when QB T. Kilpatrick ran the ball in from one yard out. MSU would score again off a returned INT (below) from 49 yards out one minute later and would only score FG's the rest of the way. OU added another FG (52 yards) in the second quarter to make the score 14-6 in favor of the home team heading into the half.The third quarter only saw 6 points scored (two MSU FG's) to make the score 20-6 after 3 quarters. Quarter #4 saw the Sooners score a TD, MSU nail another FG (below, game winner) then OU score another TD as time expired.The basic story of the game was the brutal INT for a TD in the second quarter. OU put themselves into a hole they could never come back from. MSU's careful offense and stout defense kept the Sooners far enough behind to where they could never overcome the hole they were in.
