Live Blog: Texas A&M Aggies vs Oklahoma Sooners

Oklahoma (5-4) host Texas A&M (5-4) tonight in Norman with both teams seeking bowl eligibility, the Sooners unranked for the first time since December 2005 hope to avoid a disastrous 5-5 record. Oklahoma's season has been plagued with injuries, losing All-Americans Jermaine Gresham and Sam Bradford, worsened this week with loss of Brody Eldridge (shoulder), Jarvis Jones (heel) and Auston English (foot) for the season. That puts a total of five starters out for the season.

The bright spot, if there was one, is the emergence of Landry Jones and other young talent on offense. However, last weekend for the first time in more than a decade the Oklahoma offense failed to score a touchdown in a 10-3 loss to Nebraska. Jones, who threw five interceptions in the game, and the offensive unit, hounded by penalties and missed opportunities, took a step backwards.

The Aggies coming off a 34-35 loss to Colorado last weekend, haven't beat the Sooners since 2002, hope to turn around a lopsided Oklahoma series in their favor. If the Aggies have any chance against the Sooners, A&M hopes their defense pressures Landry Jones into mistakes. A&M hopes Von Miller, who leads the nation in sacks, has a huge game.

Now with all that said.... If the Sooners win tonight, Oklahoma could still finish second in Big 12 south. However, an Oklahoma loss will put them ahead of only Baylor in the Big 12 South.
