“Our run defense wasn’t good enough tonight either. This is the first time somebody ran at us like this. We’ve got to make sure we’re doing the right things. We’ll see. I thought our kids played hard. We made them work. We gave up the two big plays, and they were monumental in the game. That’s disappointing.”
The mystique is gone: Owen Field had an electricity about it that doesn’t come along every night. There was a record crowd of 86,031 on hand. A lot of it had to do with the Sooners playing a highly ranked, historic program. But it also had something to do with the success OU has had at home as well. From 2002-2011, they lost at home just once. The Saturday night loss to the Fighting Irish was OU’s third home loss in the seven games, dating back to last season.
