OKLAHOMA COACH BOB STOOPS:
(On OU defense)
“Just amazing. To keep someone to 13 yards passing, I don’t care who you’re playing. To complete two footballs in a college football game today. They threw a lot of offense at us, the two-headed quarterback we’ve heard about for a month.
Defensively (we) may have outperformed what (we) did a year ago. To play two bowl games the last two years, against two very good teams, and keep them out of the end zone, is hard to do.
