09/13/15 - In the biggest clash pitting the Big 12 against a rival from the SEC, Oklahoma did not look up to the challenge playing on the road against Tennessee. Trailing by two touchdowns in the fourth quarter, the Sooners looked incapable of reviving a woeful offense. Then, suddenly, Oklahoma went on the attack behind quarterback Baker Mayfield and running back Samaje Perine. After forging a tie to send the game into overtime, the Sooners scored touchdowns in both extra sessions and sealed the 31-24 comeback win with a game-ending interception. Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops had little difficulty rating the victory, even though the loss was the 28th for Tennessee in its last 29 meetings against ranked opponents. "It's one of the more special wins, maybe my favorite of all of them," Stoops said. "A little Sooner magic came back out."
In making that assessment, it did not hurt that Oklahoma's victim was from the SEC. Stoops has never been shy commenting about the reputation the SEC garners while generally perceived as the nation's best football conference. Before the road game, Oklahoma linebacker Eric Striker also chimed in. "I don't know why people blow gas up their (behinds) all the time," Striker said about the SEC. "I don't understand why." For the better part of the game, it appeared he and the Sooners would have to dine on those words. - The Sports Xchange
09/13/15 - FIVE BIGGEST TAKEAWAYS FROM WEEK 2 IN THE BIG 12: 1. Oklahoma looked dead at Tennessee before scoring two late touchdowns in regulation and two more in overtime to steal a stirring road victory. The Sooners looked far different in the comeback than they did last season when they wilted down the stretch. Look for Oklahoma to contend in the Big 12. - The Sports Xchange
