Fast Starts A Key For Sooners, Horns

By  | 

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - The Red River Rivalry has all the pageantry
of one of college football's greatest games.
A stadium filled to the rim with half the fans in crimson and
the others in burnt orange. Big Tex will be there, along with the
marching bands and the Golden Hat Trophy.
Maybe they should install starting blocks, too.
The team that has scored first has won the last five
Oklahoma-Texas games and seven of the last eight. Both teams have
shown early dominance on their way to the top five this season.
The top-ranked Sooners (5-0, 1-0 Big 12) have taken control
immediately in every game, outscoring opponents 103-3 in the first
quarter and never trailing. Not only has Oklahoma scored on all
five of its opening possessions, the defense is playing a part,
too.
In the three games when the Sooners' opponents got the ball
first, each one went three-and-out.
