Columbia, MO--In what was expected to be more of a blowout win for the Sooners, they had to survive costly mistakes by their best player.
The Sooners, led by the arm and brain of Heisman Trophy winner Sam Bradford, normally rely on Bradford to calm the team, lead by example and his NFL ready arm. Today, Oklahoma had to overcome what Bradford did.The first half started and ended slowly. The Sooners scored 10 while Mizzou settled for a goose egg. The second half saw the Tigers get on the board after a Sam Bradford interception was taken 33 yards for a touchdown by C. Gettis. The Sooners moved on but once again they saw their star give up a huge play. At the start of the fourth quarter, Bradford threw another interception that was taken in for a TD, this time from 62 yards out by S. Richardson. They converted a two-point conversion to bring the score to 24-21 in favor if the Sooners.OU would go on to knock in a 44 yard field goal (Tress Way-above) to make the final score 27-21 in favor of the road team. The players of the game were: RJ Washington (DE) for OU and Z. Gooden for Mizzou. Gooden had 14 tackles and one interception. Washington had 6 tackles, 2 for a loss and 2 forced fumbles on the day.
