Whaley absence felt, but defense more hampered by injuries



The misses dropped Hunnicutt to 11-for-13 on the season. The second quarter miss ended a streak of seven straight conversions for the redshirt freshman. He added a 22-yard field goal late in the third quarter.

Play clocks altered

Whether it had something to do with the storm that delayed the game more than 90 minutes, the usual play clocks were both off Saturday night. Instead, the video boards at Owen Field both had play clocks inserted.

The north video board had the clock inserted in the lower left-hand corner. In the much larger south video board, it was inserted in the space between Oklahoma’s and Texas Tech’s score was displayed on the video board’s right side.

Broyles held in check

Ryan Broyles extended his NCAA career receptions record to 333. However, The 84 receiving yards he picked up were well off his season average. He entered Saturday’s game averaging 135.8 receiving yard per outing.

Turnover battle

For the second straight game, OU was unable to force a turnover. Since accumulating five in a 55-17 rout of Texas Oct. 8, the Sooners are minus-4 in the giveaway department.

Broyles fumbled after a 27-yard catch early in the second quarter. Landry Jones threw his only interception in the third quarter.

Neither Texas Tech, nor Kansas last week, committed a turnover.

John Shinn 366-3536
