OU-UW; 5 Plays that Made a Difference

  1. Sam Bradford TD pass to Iglesias; facing 3rd and goal from the 13 and a blitzing UW defender, Bradford throws a strike to Juaqain Iglesias, who races into the end zone to start the scoring.
  2. Jake Locker breaks into the open field for the Huskies, but is stripped from behind by Brian Jackson near midfield. Jackson recovered the fumble as well. The Sooners converted the turnover into a score two plays later when Bradford hit Jermaine Gresham for a 22 yard score.
  3. Facing 4th and 12 from the Sooner 30, Jared Ballman misses badly on a 47 yard field goal. The brief sign of life from the Huskies was choked from them, and the Sooners methodically marched down the field for their third TD.
  4. Trailing 20-0 and just inside of OU territory, Locker completes a pass to D’Andre Goodwin. Goodwin coughs up the ball, and the Sooners avert another surge by the Huskies. The Sooners marched 79 yards in 10 plays to take a 27-0 lead.
  5. Just three plays into the second half, Ryan Broyles slips a couple of poor tackle attempts by the Huskies, and races 77 yards for a score, making the score 41-0. Frankly, the game was in hand at this point, but the yards after catch by Broyles were a perfect snapshot of the poor tackling and talent mismatch in this game.

I think I got Sooner club priority points for the second half.
