Sooners Rally Past Aggies

Sooners out duel Aggies 42-35

The Sooners came from behind early to out duel the Texas A&M. Aggies went up 14-0 against second ranked Oklahoma. The Sooners continue to show their offense is the most efficient in the nation. Heisman hopefuls Jason White and Adrian Peterson continued their track to NYC. White threw for 19-35 for 292 yards, 5 TDs, meanwhile freshman great Peterson again rushed over 100 yards with 101, in 29 rushes with 1 TD.

But questions, arise with the Oklahoma Defense again they had trouble against the average Texas A&M offense. They continue to struggle on the deep pass against them. McNeal was 11-24 with 2 TD and 1 INT. Is Oklahoma defense especially secondary as good as they are especially against a good offense? They can't afford deep passes to be tossed against them in big games, against top teams. They desperately need Perkins to return to there defensive backfield to show leadership.

Overall Second Half was a great performance offensively and defensively for Oklahoma. They still struggled on special teams throughout the game allowing 2 touchdowns. But again a win is a win especially in College Station.

Team Leaders:
Passing: Jason White, 19-36 for 292 yards 5 TDs
Rushing: Adrian Peterson, 29 rushes 101 yards (Note: Peterson suffered a arm injury late in game, no word yet on extent. Peterson returned to rush again to put himself over 100 yards then never saw action again.)
Receiving: Mark Clayton, 6 catches 102 yards
