NORMAN, Oklahoma – The Oklahoma Sooners had a bad start to their game against Missouri Saturday and continued to have problems on defense for much of the night.
OU allowed 532 total yards, which included two different players recording more than 100 rushing yards. Running back Henry Josey averaged 9.5 yards per carry, and quarterback James Franklin carried the ball 20 times for 103 yards.
The Sooners performed better on offense, moving the ball well after a stagnant first quarter. But Landry Jones also threw two bad interceptions and was routinely high on his throws throughout the night.
OU will get a break in competition against Ball State, but will need to fix these issues against rival Texas the following week.
