Boulder, CO--The thin air of Colorado and the Rocky Mountains can take a toll on even the best trained athletes. It's an advantage Colorado has long cherished and benefited from. They expect brash, arrogant football players to not take the thin air seriously then once they get on the field and start running around with adrenaline pumping, they're quickly exhausted and unable to play to their normal levels.This was not the case for the Oklahoma Sooners this Saturday late in September. The Sooners came out and dominated the Buffs. If it weren't for two returned interceptions for touchdowns, Colorado may have never scored a touchdown. The final score of 41-16 was a good indicator of how well OU played and how poorly CU played.
The game featured three INT's returned for TD's (2 for CU, 1 for OU). The Players of the Game were: OU-Ethan Reese (TE, 8-89-2 TD); For CU-J. Carter (9TKL, 1 TFL, 1 INT, 1 DEFL, 1 TD). OU dominated CU in the following categories: First Downs (22-9), Total Offense (352-186), Rush Yards (81-22), Pass Yards (271-164), Third Down Conv. Percentage (50-18), Time of Possession (16:39-11:31). OU next faces #7 Texas in Dallas while CU travels to Waco, TX to face Baylor.
