Oklahoma Report Card Against Texas A&M

The Oklahoma Sooners won their first game in Norman since having their 39-game home winning streak snapped, and received mostly high marks from Dean Blevins in this week's report card.

The OU offense struggled in the first half, particularly quarterback Landry Jones. Jones continued to have problems with high passes, and his issues were made worse by winds gusting to 30 mph.

The defense held Texas A&M in check in the first half as well, and then both sides of the ball turned things on in the third quarter. The Sooners forced two turnovers, and the offense turned both into touchdowns as part of a string of 28 unanswered points.

However, after building a big lead OU let off the gas in the fourth. The offense stagnated – due in large part to the season-ending injury of star receiver Ryan Broyles – and the defense began allowing yards in bunches.

The Sooners did not score in the fourth quarter, while Texas A&M got in the end zone twice to make the final score seem more respectable.

OU's special teams produced one of its most complete games of the year. Despite the strong winds, Michael Hunnicutt made both of his field goal attempts and Tress Way delivered strong punts.

Way had one short punt, but canceled that out with a 62-yard bomb and a total of four punts downed inside the 20-yard line.
