I knew that there was potential there for Oklahoma to win this game in a blowout but to be honest with you I really didn’t expect it. Oklahoma took their opening drive 53 yards and then took advantage of three Nebraska turnovers on their next five plays to jump to a 28-0 lead with nine-and-a-half minutes still left in the first quarter. Oklahoma added another touchdown later in the quarter to push the lead to 35-0 and then Bob Stoops pushed the cruise control button. The final result was a 62-28 OU victory with seven of Nebraska’s points coming in garbage time.
